Saturday 29th June 2019 – PARTY AT THE ORCHARDS – 1pm til 8pm

Dunham Press Orchards | The Curry Den | Smoke, Fire, Flame BBQ | Beaches of Mcr | Large Covered Barn Available

For a first time event The Party at The Orchards worked amazingly well last year and we’re extremely pleased Chris Hewitt at Dunham Press Cider has been happy to host again for this year.

We’ll be in the middle of one of Chris’ orchards in Dunham Massey but expect a CASK and KEG beer bar, lots of CIDER, STREET FOOD and MUSIC by Beaches of Mcr. After a top BBQ show at our January Brewtap we’ve got Smoke, Fire, Flame BBQ on the guest list.

Final food & drinks confs are now in with the Little Red Pizza Co bringing their wood fired pizza oven along and the guys from Extreme Coffee bringing along they’re finest roasts…

For the kids (& big kids) we’ll have the best locally produced Ice Cream in the area onsite from Dunham Massey Farm Ice Cream. They’ll be heading down from their newly refurbished Ice Cream Parlour. There’ll also be bouncy castles and lots of wide open space.

The best things about the location is it’s easily accessible yet idyllic. We thought getting there might pose a problem last year but lots of people hit the canal and Bridgewater Way by bike and foot, jumped on the bus (CAT5 or CAT5A from Altrincham) or grabbed a taxi. We managed to get nearly 200 people there and everyone really enjoyed the day.

Everyone involved has young families and we’re all local to Altrincham. Our own BrewTaps have gone this way naturally to an extent so we’d love you to make this a family day out. If you’ve never been to the Dunham Press Orchards there’s lots to see and you’d be amazed it’s all so close to home.

***If it’s not for some reason a scorcher like last year we have a large covered barn area available and can move the event indoors if absolutely necessary****

Venue address: Dunham Cider Press, Boundary Farm, Sawpit Street, Altrincham, WA14 5SJ.

To cover the various amenities, services and accesses we’ll need to provide for the day we’ll be ticketing this event. Pre-booked tickets are priced at £7.50 per Adult. This includes any one drink from either bar on the day which you can get on production of your named event ticket.

Other then that you can turn up on the day and pay £5 on the gate. No drink will be included with this option.

It’s free entry for children.

Dogs are welcome so long as they’re kept on leads around the event venue and orchard walks. Outside of that there’s loads of places around about for dog walkers.

Onsite (overnight) parking will be available.

If you’ve any questions or require further information please don’t hesitate in getting in touch on 07730 515251 via social media or just email tapandshop@stubbornmulebrewery.com

Comedy Night | Book Online | Food TBC | Over 18s Only

If you’ve been along before you’ll know it’s well worth getting along to. If not, stick it on your to-do list for March.

Saturday 23rd February 2019 – BREWTAP – 1pm til 8pm

Possible New Beer | Smoke, Fire, Flame BBQ | All Welcome

So much for Dry January, not sure Altrincham bothered with it by the look of the last tap day. Anyway, on to the next and striking while the iron’s hot – in more ways than one. All being well with the brew schedule we’re hoping to slot a new beer in for this months tap…TBC. While that’s in the pipeline we’re also lickin our lips about the next beer/food combo we’ve got coming up.

More to follow on social media in the coming weeks but we think our beers and some Smoke, Fire, Flame BBQ are a match made in heaven.!!!

Looking forward to it.

See you there.

Saturday 26th January 2019 – BREWTAP – 1pm til 8pm

Tryanuary Special | Mild Pi Club Cask | Food TBC | All Welcome

There’s apparently something called Dry January that takes place just after New Year…well around here we call it #TRYANARY. It’s a much more interesting concept and is aimed at supporting the brewing industry by offering access to a whole host of local and national beery events. In essence it’s a great excuse for you to look for an opportunity to try new beers or breweries..!!

That’s where we come in. We’ll be opening at the end of January 2019 offering the perfect chance for you to come a try our beers and see our brewery. If you been before we’ll have new beer available and if you’ve never been along to the brewery or tried our our beers it’ll make the perfect end to your Tryanuary or could even mark the end of your – say it quietly – Dry January.

See you there.

Saturday 10th November 2018 – BREWTAP – 1pm til 8pm

Collab Weekend | Trafford Veterans Mild Release | Mackie Mayor 7.1% IPA | The Curry Den | All Welcome

We’ve hooked up with Trafford Veterans to mark 100 years since the WW1 Armistice.  Its was only right to make a beer that was popular at the time of WW1 and we’ve gone for our own take on an English Mild. At 3.5% if you’re looking for an easy Saturday afternoon drink this will be right up you’re street.

That said, we’ll also have the rest of our beers on plus our collab (7.1% IPA) with the Mackie Mayor on keg so what ever you like you’ll be all good.

If we’re counting right it’ll be two on cask (inc the mild) and 7 on keg for that afternoon….9 beers on in total. With The Curry Den in tow it should be a good one.

Saturday 29th September 2018 – BREWTAP (1pm til 8pm)  

BrewTap | South Manny Flavaz | Beaches Of Mcr + DJ MattY | All Welcome

Wow. Summer has nearly disappeared. Where did all the sun go?! No reason not to slot another BrewTap in though….

Great news on the food front, we’ve managed to snag South Manny Flavaz. This is fried chicken at its absolute best. They’ve been going down a strorm the last couple of weeks up the road in Stretford so we’re well pleased to get them on board for this last tap of the summer months.

No worries on the tunes either as we’ve got the Beaches of Manchester and DJ MattY who’ll be bopping it with some top Northern Soul amongst other things. Not to be missed.

Saturday 8th September 2018 – BREWTAP (1pm til 6pm) & COMEDY NIGHT (7pm til 11pm)

#Altrincham Introducing…..

Kerry Leigh (Host) @kerryleighcomic

Kerry builds instant rapport with an audience…Quick witted and quirky, Kerry gets everyone involved when she is MC-ing. Her honest and identifiable comedy is reminiscent of the very best of nights out with that hilarious and hapless friend who is always happy to share their latest mishap. Kerry’s audience tends to leave with aching sides, safe in the knowledge that they’ve been part of something truly live, created before their eyes…

Smug Roberts @smugroberts

Born and bred in Manchester, he’s one of the top stand-up comics, alongside his local pals Peter Kay and Johnny Vegas. His acting performances and credits both in television and films include the hugely popular Bafta award winning TV shows Mrs Browns Boys, Buried, Cold Feet, Phoenix Nights (Peter Kay) and the films “Looking For Eric” (Dir Ken Loach) and 24 Hour Party People (Dir Michael Winterbottom).

“An extraordinary comic” – MEN

“A brilliant act, he defies description and has to be seen” – City Life

“He neatly subverts the crowd’s expectations by presenting the exact opposite of what they are anticipating” – The Guardian

Nuff said.

Lindsey Davies @lindseydavies77

Apparently…..

With a face like a lady and a mouth like that toilet from Trainspotting, next up we have Lindsey Davies: the C-bomb dropping, baggage carrying northern lass from Leigh: a town, she laughs, that’s ‘inbred to f*ck’. Her sweet demeanor is long-gone the moment she opens her mouth, throwing massive pieces of shock into the faces of her audience.

Dan Nightingale @DanNcomedian

Dan is one of the best performers found on the comedy circuit today. Mixing brilliant observation and energetic characterisations with killer punch lines, his comedy is original, playful, intelligent, exciting, sometimes ridiculous but always hilarious.

He’s a natural with the crowd, bouncing off any audience interaction wonderfully, making him a much sought after host and MC. Yet he’s also an inventive writer and a great storyteller and his comedy sets, whether supporting or headlining, are a chance to see the full variety of his superb material and clever stagecraft.

Tickets will sell fast. Book now for a top night out. Might see you there.

Any questions email tapandshop@stubbornmulebrewery.com or hit us direct on 07730 515251 or via social media.

PARTY AT THE ORCHARDS

Saturday 30th June 2018 12pm til 6pm

Mcr Beer Week Special | Stubborn Mule Brewery Bar | Dunham Press Cider Bar

The Curry Den | Tapas Altrincham | Dunham Massey Ice Cream | Beaches Of Mcr

Tickets Only £7.50 | Includes One Drink | Available HERE


Summer is fast approaching, what to do….

Go on then let’s pull together some of Altrincham & Manchester’s finest small batch producers of food, drink & music together in one place for something a bit different.

We’re taking the BrewTap offsite for a Manchester Beer Week and Summer Special!!!!

As soon as we heard the guys at Mcr Beer Week were looking for ways to push things beyond the Manchester City Centre boundaries we instantly thought we could provide them an event spot.

With summer here we’ve also been thinking it was time to find another venue with a difference if we were to take the tap away from Radium Works for the first time. Now, where to go in and around Altrincham to keep things friendly to everyone who’s been attending our BrewTaps to date – and hopefully make it appealing to many more? Oooh yes, Altrincham’s very own Cider Orchards out in Dunham Massey. So we’re off, and fortunately Chris Hewitt who’s owns Dunham Press Cider has been only too happy to get involved. We’ve got two months to get the show on the road….

The best things about the location is it’s easily accessible yet idyllic. You can wander or cycle down the Bridgewater canal with the family, taxi it or jump on a bus to get out to the Orchards – and being so close to Manchester we’re also guaranteed the weather (of some sort anyway!)

The address is as follows so plan your route: Boundary Farm, Sawpit Street, Dunham Massey, WA14 4SJ.

We’ll be bringing along a bar stocked full of our cask beers (yes even Donkey Punch is being specially racked to cask for this one) straight from the brewery cold room and Dunham Press will have all their finest locally produced ciders available throughout.

Chris from Dunham Press will also be leading walks in to the orchards showing off their array of apples from the all important cider apples through to dessert. All in we’ve got lazy hazy summer day of drinks covered.

And there’s more….we’ll have some of the best street food from the guys who’ve supported us hugely in the last 12 months The Curry Den & Tapas Altrincham. We’ll confirm menus closer to the time but expect BBQ, Kebabs and much more.

For the kids & big kids we’ll have the best locally produced Ice Cream in the area onsite from Dunham Massey Ice Cream. They’ll be heading down from their soon to be newly refurbished Ice Cream Parlour. Check it.

Last but not least mainly because it was a tough booking to get – I do not kid – but we’ve nabbed the Beaches of Manchester for the day so can pretty much guarantee that the atmosphere wind, rain or sun (or the whole lot) will be ace. After this debut last month my good friend The Gingerbread Man will also be on the scene with his funk soul classic set amongst his other party pieces. As James Brown said “Get down”.

Everyone involved has young families and we’re all local to Altrincham. BrewTaps have gone this way naturally to an extent so we’d love you to make this a family day out. If you’ve never been to the Dunham Press Orchards there’ll be lots to see and you’d be amazed it’s all so close to home.

Just in case though the bouncy castles are booked….CHILDREN – FREE ENTRY

Dogs are welcome so long as they’re kept on leads in and around the event venue and the orchard walks. Outside of that there’s lots of places around about for dog walkers to explore.

If anyone out there thinks they have something they can or want to bring to the party contact ed@stubbornmulebrewery.com

To ensure we can cover the various amenities, services and accesses we’ll need to provide for the day we’ll be ticketing this event.
Tickets are priced at £7.50 per Adult. This includes any one drink from either bar on the day which you can get on production of your named event ticket.
