Keep an eye on the website or social media for updates.


United Vs Everton Pre-Match Brewtap

4pm til 7pm | 4th April 2017 | Stubborn Mule Brewery

As we’ll be open for a private event in the evening this is a perfect opportunity to invite some locals take a look at the brewery and our beers on the way to the Everton match. Well priced craft beer on the way to Old Trafford? O yes.

We’re a 5 mins walk from the Navigation Rd Metrolink stop so the only worry is around watching another nil-nil at OT.

None footie folk also very welcome, although we’ll be closing the doors at 7pm for the Trafford & Hulme CAMRA Branch Meeting.

On Keg:

Pre-Prohibition Cream Ale 5.5%  / Single Hop IPA 5.7% / Chocolate Stout 5.8%

Trafford & Hulme CAMRA Branch AGM 2016

13th October 2016 | Stubborn Mule Brewery

We threw our hat in to the ring to host the T&HCAMRA AGM on the 13th of October. For our very first event it was a bit of a coup to have Colin Valentine the National CAMRA Chairman there to speak for the evening.  After being reliably informed that the expected attendance was usually somewhere in the region of 30, 40 max we laid on a couple of casks and some beers in kegs and bottles.

A quote from CAMRA in their following monthly mag sums up the night quite well:

“What an event that was – almost 70 members, a record attendance, standing room only and the bar drank dry! Sincere apologies to those of you that had to stand and further that Stubborn Mule ran out of cask beer!”

We look forward to hosting their branch meeting April 4th 2017.

Bier Cell Meet The Brewer

August Bank Holiday 2016

Biercell in Altrincham were good enough to let us do a Meet the Brewer Event on the August 2016 Bank Holiday. This was a chance to showcase our whole range at one of Altrincham’s better known beery places. With a keg of the Single Hop IPA on tap in the shop a top day was had by all.
