New Web Site

Our new web site is now up and running at and we'd love to know what you think.  The site is designed to give you information about the brewery and our beers while we will continue to use the blog to keep you up to date with any news and to show you what we get up to behind the scenes and outside the brewery.

And speaking of news...after it's success at the SIBA National Beer Competition, winning Champion Bottled Speciality Beer, our bottled Port O'Call has also been entered into The International Beer Challenge.  Fingers crossed!

Bolton Beer Festival

It was the 2013 Bolton Beer Festival on the 9th - 12th October and as usual we turned out on mass to enjoy the huge selection of cask ales, international beers and ciders (along with some great entertainment).

As always we had the honour of brewing the festival beer and this years beer was brewed by a special guest brewer....the one and only Mr John Feeney!  John came out of retirement as he felt he still had one more recipe in him....and here it is, his Swan Song.

An easy drinking amber beer brewed with Casacde and Calypso hops.
