Chiltern Double 50 is back!

This popular brew celebrating 50 years of the Chilterns AONB and Chiltern Society is back for February. Available in the Chiltern Brewery shop and in local pubs. It's a rich, dark amber ale which went down a storm last year. Every pint sold helps protect our lovely countryside!
