John Clavell and James Hind were highwaymen who travelled the routes of the Cotswolds, stopping off at inns and public houses to quench their thirst, rest and plot their next adventure. Clavell and Hind are now the inspiration behind the new Gloucestershire microbrewery launched in 2018 by James Dobson and Timothy Hieghton Jackson

Their Story

John Clavell and James Hind were highwaymen who travelled the routes of the Cotswolds, stopping off at inns and public houses on their way. 

These two infamous characters have today become the inspiration behind the Gloucestershire microbrewery ‘Clavell & Hind’, launched in 2018 by James Dobson and Timothy Hieghton Jackson.

With four beers in its range – Coachman, Blunderbuss, Wicked Lady and Rockwood, Clavell & Hind is the result of 20 years of experience within the pub and brewing industry for these two ale lovers based in Birdlip.

Brewing on a 20-barrel Moeschle plant, Clavell & Hind may be inspired by a bygone era of highwaymen, but it produces modern and distinctive beer styles with a focus on quality and consistency.
