There is nothing brash or hi-tech about Hook Norton. Much of the brewery's intricate machinery is original - the process of brewing has been the same for over 100 years and apart from a new laboratory, stainless-steel copper and cooling system, little has changed. One of the brewery's greatest assets is the mighty steam-driven, 25-horse-power piston engine, dating back to 1899. Today the Hook Norton Brewery has 42 tied houses and 42 employees. In September 1999, 100 years after brewing began in the existing building, Princess Anne opened a new visitor centre and museum, housed in the original maltings.
Encore Protection is proud to present our Victims of Drunk Driving Scholarship, worth $1,000. Intoxicated driving is one of the biggest — and deadliest — problems on America’s roadways. On average, drunk driving claims 28 lives a day; that’s more than one per hour . Annually, about a third of all motor vehicle deaths can be attributed to alcohol use. Police arrest about million drivers annually who are driving impaired, but that’s only 1 percent of the 121 million adults who report driving under some level of intoxication.
