Founded in 1995 and located in the former mill village of Bank Top in the north of Bolton, we are housed in the picturesque grade two listed tennis pavilion. The pavilion houses our custom built 11 barrel brew plant from which we brew on average 22,000 pints per week. We only use the finest raw ingredients, including malt from Warminster Maltings (Britain’s oldest working floor malting - malt is hand crafted using the same methods and tools employed more than 100 years ago) and an international range of whole hops from Charles Faram and Company (merchants of hops and hop products for over 100 years). We do not use any artificial colours or flavourings, all our flavours are solely achieved by the careful variation of ingredients and methods.
We are a member of SIBA, the Society of Independent Brewers, a trade association established to promote and protect the interests of independent breweries. As SIBA members we aim to preserve the traditional styles and methods of brewing while at the same time raising the profile of craft beer.
