I'll start off with a disclosure. I've enjoyed the beers produced by the Malvern Hills Brewery for years, I've drunk at least a pint of all (I think) of the different beers they have crafted and loved everyone of them. Right now with that out of the way I can continue.

The Malvern Hills Brewery is fantastic micro brewery tucked away on the side of a road, one of those places hidden in plain sight. Each brew crafted by Julian the brewer and owner of the company and each given a name with some local connection. For example Black Pear (it appears on Worcester's coat of arms), Santler (a car built in Malvern between 1889 and 1922 and said to be Britains first commercially produced petrol car) and Swedish Nightingale (referring to Jenny Lind who spent the later part of her life in Malvern).

The day of my visit was a busy one with empty barrels being cleaned and the next beer being brewed. Steam was rolling out of the brew house and the smell of it all was simply amazing. Now if I could only embed a smell into a panorama!
