Customer Reviews

  1. Paul

    A new classic! I have been drinking the beer from this establishment for over twenty years now. Love Good Old Boy and Mr Chubbs. But this new IPA has got me hooked.

    Well done great to have yet another great beer to choose from.

  2. Jake Alexander

    One of the best beers that I have personally tasted.

  3. James (verified owner)

    Really delightful beer and excellent smooth delivery. Already on my second crate

  4. Mike (verified owner)

    Good taste, ‘hoppy’ but not to strong or sweet

  5. Norman (verified owner)

    I’ve been drinking West Berks Beers since it started behind the Pot Kiln. I miss Mr Swift though & look forward to tasting the new beers but Maharaja IPA has become the go to beer at home for me & 2 of my sons. May it continue.

  6. Ben

    Mine, and most of my close friends, go-to IPA since we first tried it. Really great beer

  7. Mr Bruce DREW (verified owner)

    This is a top of class brew in its segment of the market. Please don’t modify the recipe.

  8. MartinMac (verified owner)

    Not owning up to how many cases of Maharaja I’ve bought, nor how often – let’s just say I need a bigger bottle recycling crate!!
    Love the stuff …… and the girl/lady on collections is always very friendly and helpful.

    I can’t think of a better way of getting through lockdown than tickling your tastebuds with Maharaja IPA

  10. Thomas Evans (verified owner)

    This has to be my favourite IPA and my favourite drink in the West Berkshire Range

  11. David Sinclair (verified owner)

    It’s a lovely IPA. The best compliment I can pay it is that I enjoy it almost as much as I enjoy Good Old Boy – and I’ve always been a bitter drinker!

  12. Mark B (verified owner)

    Nice, light, cirtusy IPA. It can be a bit lively when you open it, so just be ready 🙂

  13. Nathan Robinson (verified owner)

    My favourite IPA! If I could only drink this or Mr Chubb’s for the rest of my life, I’d be a happy man.

  14. Martin Rafferty (verified owner)

    My favourite IPA without any doubt, great in the bottle and brilliant on draught.

  15. Peter R (verified owner)

    Some IPAs overdo the hops and result in a brew that needs to be chilled before it’s palatable. Maharajah IPA, by contrast, provides enough bite to make it interesting, but remains smooth without needing to chill to within an inch of its life. Has rapidly become a firm favourite.

  16. Graham Stewart

    Bought this as I love IPA’s and it’s always good to support your local brewery’s. I was not disappointed this is bloody lovely!! Just about to order myself a case, might treat myself to the double IPA aswell

  17. Catweazle (verified owner)

    Lovely beer great service. Who could ask for more?

  18. Josh Sandars (verified owner)

    The best IPA on the market. Perfect blend of Hop notes that are not over powering compared to others. Such a beautiful beer!

  19. Sheldon Holte (verified owner)

    One of my favourite beers, accompanys all foods , interestingly I prefer it at room temperature, sons, in their 20s, prefer it chilled

  20. Roger

    IPA has a unique and great taste that lingers. My favourite beer at present.

  25. Colin (verified owner)

    Excellent hoppy IPA. Very refreshing.

  26. Simon (verified owner)

    Of all the IPA’s I have tried from all over the UK, Maharaja always comes out on top. A great tasting, easy to drink beer. Well done to all at WBB.

  27. Craig (verified owner)

    Amazing. Hoppy and refreshing. I prefer it to any others.

  28. Tarquin (verified owner)

    Great beer, one of the best IPA’s there is!

  29. Robert Hetherington (verified owner)

    Fabulous beer, I am very much a traditional bitter man, Good Old Boy and Yaffle in old money, both classics. Well, tried Maharaja and WOW, to me this is another West Berks Classic, IPA yes but not extreme, the perfect hoppy citrus step-up. All my fellow traditionalists love this too. Well-done West Berks!

  30. Keith (verified owner)

    Delivery was on time and well packaged.

  31. Keong (verified owner)

    Amazing IPA!! Nice balance of hoppy flavour with freshness in taste. Loved by all who shared it. Highly recommended!!!
