Our History

Conceived in late 2013 the idea to create a new micro brewery for Stockport was born. Steve and Andy (The owners) had both been apprentices for British Gas a long time ago, in fact Andy was Steve’s apprentice for a time. Their interest in beer was developed from a 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. The brewery was to be placed in an old warehouse building underneath arch 14 of the famous Stockport Viaduct.

In May 2014 after much building work and 8 BBL plant was installed.

 

HMRC accreditation was finally gained in 2014 and brewing commenced in September 2014, prior to that brewing was undertaken on a friendly local brewers kit. Special thanks Bollington Brewery.

the first beers were launched at the Stockport Brewing festival 2014. the brewery now has a regular brewing capacity of 100 firkins per week it brews more than 15 different ales and regularly serves over 100 pubs across the North West and North Wales.
