To the Poachers Brewery web site.
in 2001, Poachers was a 5-barrel micro
brewery which was originally situated on the former site
of RAF Swinderby (a war time Bomber Command
Station, latterly the School of Recruit
Training before closing in 1992).
The Brewery is owned and operated by
George Batterbee, a former RAF man for 25
years who has come 'full circle', as he
spent his first tour at RAF Swinderby which
lasted for 5 years.
Today the brewery operates from a
converted barn at the rear of the brewer's
house in North Hykeham.
All the beers brewed by Poachers are also
available in Bottle-Conditioned form.
Visitors are welcome to view the Brewery
subject to prior arrangements.
