Boss Beers from Liverpool..

Mad Hatter make a long awaited debut with us, real quality 😆 yes in 330ml but i think worth a try….


A Porter, great IPA and a Cranberry and Beetroot wit made with French Belle Saison yeast.


A strong Cherry Scotch ale and a rather potent IPA…

Keep an eye out for a draft option too, Mad March Hare a 3.9% Pale..

Fully open today so hope to see you soon.

Thursday closed

Unless something changes that is, the snow has closed a large number of roads around Macclesfield and its madness trying to get anywhere with no gritting in progress, cars abandoned on Congleton road leaving the town…. πŸ˜₯

See you tomorrow….

No clues needed. ..

As to where these new arrivals are from :)….


A 5.2% Weisse beer from Abensberg north of Munich….


Huber’s 5.4% Dunkel Weisse which joins Huber Orignal Wiesse beer, which has proved to be very popular indeed..from Freising, again north east of Munich…


A Mullerbrau 5.5% Weiss from Pfaffenhofen, again in Bavaria….now accompanies the Dunkel we already have….:)

It’s Tuesday…

Im guessing you know that but….well its delivery day number one for us, Belgian re stock….along with a couple of brits….


The very nice Petrus Blond is back along with Grimbergen and Maredsous blondes…one of those days πŸ˜‰  Vedett IPA along with…..


Flying Dog’s Pearl Necklace…. Anchor Brewery full restock and quite a few others….oh there’s. …


For those that like their hops….

We have on draught currently…


Not sure what this weekends will be yet, we have options…😆

We have some rather special beers arriving from a top north western brewer arriving over the next day or so, putting our 330ml policy to the test….a bit of a trial but its well worth it we believe….

See you soon…

If you’re ready,lets begin..

After a trip up to the North East for a bit if a break we remember to collect a few new beers for you lucky people to get stuck into ;). .firstly a small brewey from just north of York, Treboom have a really nice set up and some tasty beers…..



Secondly, a more established brewer, Durham Brewery have been brewing since the mid 90’s and have got rather good at it!! They brew one hell of a range and we’ve covered all of it bar two 330 versions….some real specials…..I’m sure both of these brewers will be regulars here…..


500ml versions…






Yep, more….


A bit more


That’s it…..750ml specials…..

See you soon 😆

Chimay place to go in the UK

Superb location we found in Durham – the head of steam, chimay centre of the UK. Thinking of getting this bottle for the beercafe


Use our beer cellar for those special ales

Throughout the year we get some special limited ales at Barleyhops and we know that some of you are starting to collect them for special occasions or left to age,Β  we also know, that once you have them at home in the cupboard, they are shouting your name to be drunk πŸ˜‰
So, we have decided to help you save those ales for the right time and to offer store them in our cellar, this time when the bottles are calling your name… you won’t hear them. It may also be a surprise when you do collect them, you could have forgotten what you have there.
Just let us know if you would like us to store them for you, the odd bottle purchased throughout the year could amount to a fantastic hamper.

Axholme Brewing Co

A bottle of special reserve will be winging its way back home with me later for a closer examination….:)

German influx…

A few more quality German beers added to the list….enjoy
