In 1983, Paddy Glenny bought the brewery and renamed it The Eagle Brewery. In 1985, 800 casks are produced per year. In 1990, Ian Rogers buys Glenny’s shares and the brewery became the Wychwood Brewery, named after a nearby medieval forest. He forms the project of opening a chain of 40 themed pubs inspired from the forest’s myths and legends. In 1997, more than 30 000 casks are produced each year. In 2002, the pubs are sold but some kept the Wychwood themed decoration. On the same year, Rogers buys the Brakspear Brewery of Henley-on-Thames. The two breweries combined make Wychwood the first producer of traditional ale.
