The Brewery lay more or less dormant until the site was bought by Paddy Glenny in the 1980s who opened "Eagle Brewery" in the cellar of the original Clinchs Eagle Maltings.
In 1990, Eagle was renamed Wychwood Brewery, and was taken over in 2002 by Refresh UK, a subsidiary of Marston's. Wychwood is now a successful brewing business, which is still based around the original Clinchs Eagle Maltings buildings.
