Don’t forget, this weekend we have on cask Redwillow’s superb best bitter Feckless, Happpy Valley’s 5.9% IPA Bollywood and finally Bollington’s 4.8% US inspired IPA Endurance, a real coup for us, not been seen anywhere on cask as yet 😆…….well worth a try believe me…..

Please remember we open at 12 noon now on Friday’s. ….hope to see you soon

And they just keep getting better and better

Today we are concentrating on One of the two breweries based in Bollington,  Cheshire. 
Bollington Brewery is a family affair with brothers Kym (the mastermind behind the beer) and Lee (who manages the small empire) with his wife Kirsten and son Wilson who are the real bosses 😉
Its great to see a family with such passion to bring outstanding ales for all to enjoy.
The list of ales are getting longer and longer but at the minute we have in stock:
★ Eastern Nights – Exotic Pale Ale 5.6% – a stunning ale, but feels stronger than 5.6%, Kym does keep telling us that it isnt any stronger, you tell us what you think!
★ Oat Mill Stout – 5.0% – a dark warming and sweet stout
★ White Nancy – 4.1% – Pale, fruity with a good body
★ Festivale – 3.8% – Refreshingly hopped Pale Ale
★ Bollington Nights – 3.9% – A smooth and dark traditional mild
★ Bollington Best – 4.2% – A crisp and hoppy golden bitter
★ Long Hop – 3.9% – A hoppy summer flavour Pale Ale
★ Dinner Ale – 4.3% – A copper coloured traditional bitter

We are nearly ready for the Congleton Food Festival

It’s tomorrow, can’t believe how quickly the day has come around. Looking forward to seeing Congleton town spring into life, with 1000s of people attending the ever-expanding event. Jo Money and her team of volunteers have done a superb job in the Organisation and keeping everyone informed.
So have a look at the Website for all the stalls, demonstration times and entertainment available. The weather is looking OK too.
Don’t forget we will be having tasters on the stall throughout the day. 
See you there 🙂
