Our Beers

There are currently 5 beers in the range with more in the pipeline. These are available across various formats, each distinct from the other.

It’s the same beer going in but once in bottle, cask or keg it ends up a completely different drink. The beer lives – literally as its unpasteurised – in different conditions, at different temperatures for different periods of time according to how we’d like people to enjoy it.

Single Hop IPA

Hoppy? Some beers are confused, not this Single-Hop IPA.

With a strength hidden beneath its smooth caramel notes, the layers of pungent Amarillo hops will help you understand exactly why this classic American hop is a go-to hop at our Brewery.

Caramel, tangerine, orange citrus, tropical fruit and grapefruit – it’s got the lot.

Pre-Prohibition Cream Ale

Despite the dark insinuation prohibition might be looming, this pilsner/pale ale hybrid is a refreshingly light & crisp beer.

The recipe is a nod to the US pre-prohibition era so its Liberty hops to add a refreshing essence of citrus, grapes, peaches and vanilla. Crash cooled for a clean finish the perfectly timed drop of honey along with a double dose of hops makes this an interesting yet easy drinker for all.

WA15 Magnum IPA

A man’s GOT to know his limitations.

This is a 7.2% WA15 Magnum. Do you feel lucky? High hopped and dry hopped this is a fully loaded American-style IPA. Dark amber in appearance the three hop varieties give a powerful, complex, yet balanced flavour and aroma.

Chocolate Stout

Originally brewed as a Father’s Day request for a Manchester chocolatier this stout has a chocolate backbone without ever coming over too sweet.

Malts kilned until they have developed a chocolate flavour, the rawest form of chocolate and a good helping of the best cacao powder makes this an extremely drinkable mid-abv stout. Originally thought of as a limited edition, this beer quite literally forced its way into our line-up. Like any great mule it comes with an ingrained sense of self-preservation.

Absolute Banker U.S Pale Ale

You might have gathered, we love our US hops, this is our take on a US Pale Ale

The IBUs are at the top end of the range, but come on, they could be higher. It’s the bitterness in our beers that gives them their character and we’re not about to hold back now. A resinous, earthy intensity from the Magnum hops and some spiciness from the Liberty, allows the citrus characteristics of the legendary Cascade hops shine through. The clean, crisp profile of the US-05 yeast provides a great platform to showcase this beer – and in our opinion it does just that.

Keg

Our keg conditioned beers let us showcase beers in what is undoubtedly becoming the go to format for beer presentation. A heavy US influence here but very much “Manc-made”.

All our beer range goes into KeyKegs.

They allow us to naturally condition beer in-keg, meaning we can manage carbonation levels appropriate to beer style in-house. They’re also exceptional at holding the flavours we’re looking for in lots of our beers all the way through to service.

Cask

Perceptions of cask beer are changing with new styles of beer adding new levels of complexity to how a cask beer should or can be presented. Whatever your outlook cask customers will demand quality.

Certain beer styles, establishments and clientele need a certain look and feel to their cask beers.

Our meticulous management of each cask allows us to fine tune our cask beers to match these expectations.

Bottles

Our 330ml bottled beers have provided the platform for everything to date. We’ve recently swapped our traditional 330ml bottles for a sleeker, classier looking piece of glassware. We’ll continue to bottle because we love bottle beers.

Mini-Keg

Not pressurised so they can’t take the carbonation levels we’re looking for in some of our beers. We will be putting our Single Hop IPA into mini-kegs though, it’s a beer that works in any format.
