Conceived in late 2013, the idea to create a new micro-brewery for Stockport was born between Andy and Steve who met when both were apprentices for British Gas, in fact Andy was Steve’s apprentice for a time. Their interest in beer was developed from an early age. Steve went onto become the landlord at the Crown Inn, Andy was career driven and that took him away from Stockport on the corporate journey.
30 years later a visit to the Crown by Andy led to Steve and himself hatching the plan to build a brewery. The brewery was to be placed in an old warehouse building underneath Arch 14 of the famous Stockport Viaduct.
In June 2017 expansion was required as the business began to grow, so a move to a unit in Bredbury to be closer to a wider network link it was. Steve retired the previous December, then Andy’s sister Paula came on board to make the now family run and owned business.
The brewery now has a regular brewing capacity of 125 firkins per week, it brews 8 core ales all year round, also occasional ales, which are regularly served to over 100 pubs across the North West, Derbyshire, East Midlands, North Yorkshire and North Wales areas, check out our range for more details. The brewery has gone from strength to strength winning a number of awards, see awards page for details.
