Rising from the ashes of those historic barrels, the Old Cooperage in Botley is once again brewing fine quality ales, under the name of CrackleRock Brewing Company.  The brewery is located just off Botley high street, so when the sun gets too hot or the shops get too busy, come and check us out at the CrackleRock Tap room behind the Turkish Barbers.  We are air conditioned and serve 9 ales on tap, 7 keg beers, over 20 gins, vodkas, wines, spirits and soft drinks.  Come see us!
