Come and visit one of Manchester’s few real neighbourhood breweries. We’d love to have a chat and show you around….

Being based in one of Altrincham’s residential neighbourhoods, Timperley, our brewery can be easily accessed via Metrolink (5 mins walk from Timperley), bus (263 from Manchester to Altrincham), or even via the Bridgewater Canal (walking, bike) – dogs are very welcome!!

Our new (Dec 2022) home at Unit 1 Skelton Road comprises a new brewing area, and most importantly, a newly refurbished taproom & shop. The idea of building a brewery was always as a nod to some of the US neighbourhood breweries that started out in a similar way knowing the buy-in of locals was critical. Happily we’ve managed to fit a tap bar and seating into the new brewhouse so we can easily showcase our beers and new releases. We all set to hold tasting events onsite and we’re always happy for people to head over andsee what we get up to. Mini-kegs and cans can also be bought at the shop to take away during our licensed hours.

The brewing process within is traditional and manual, very simlilar to that used at our original brewing site – a back garden shed in Timperley just down the road – and our second site that used to be down the road in nearby Broadheath. This is our 3rd site now and we hope to stay for some time!!

So far the brewery and associated events have worked well, we’ve had beer releases, comedy nights, charity events and running clubs stop by to sample our beers and some of the stunning street food we access from local traders. If you’re interested in booking in, suggesting something or just visiting feel free to get in touch.

The really pleasing part of moving to our new spot has been that we’ve not had to compromise on the beers we’ve always made and and the process we have in place to make our beers, if anything the quality and freshness of the ingredients has increased as we tend to buy fresh now for each brew – and we’re all set to serve our beers from within feet from where they were made.

We make handcrafted, modern beers with each one being individually keg, cask, can and bottle conditioned. All the beers are unfiltered and unpasteurised, with the majority being vegan friendly as standard. We’re an independent, family owned business and our outlook is that of a professional modern brewery. We aim to grow now we’ve found our new space.

Look us up. Come and see, stay and taste.

See you soon hopefully.
