The Wandering Brewer Project

The Wandering Brewer Project, a three-year collaboration between Wells & Co. and some of Britain's best breweries.

Our Wandering Brewer Project, launched in autumn 2017, was conceived with the aims of keeping our name as a brewer in the public consciousness whilst our new site is under construction, providing our Pub Partners with a steady stream of new brews to excite their customers, and enabling us to select the most popular beers to form our core portfolio when we start brewing in our new home.

Fast-forward almost two years: we’ve brewed 22 exciting collaboration beers, received a huge amount of positive consumer feedback, and are now ready to take the project onto its next phase. We’ll be revisiting the ten most popular brews, using them to count down to the launch of our new home, in a process we're calling Countdown.
