craft beer

Cheshire run out…

A few diversions due to the farcical traffic problems we are all enduring at the moment..

A couple of casks from David and Sue at Merlin along with the first bottles in a while..


Dropped into Crewe to collect from Offbeat, always something a little different from Michelle, 2 Saisons, one fruity the other herby, very hoppy pale, black IPA along with blood orange wheat beer, as stated, a little different 😁




Wednesday’s the new Tuesday..

Deliveries and collections galore…on your marks…get set!!!!


Yes…Jaipur,Kipling,Halcyon,Twin Peaks re join Wild Raven and Wild Swan…the one on the right is a Strawberry Blonde, small batch that I imagine won’t be around to long..


Two IPA’s from Church Street In the USA


Three more from the States, Porter a big IPA and a farmhouse Saison.

One of my favourite bottles yet..and correct, it’s those German guys again.


Also happens to be one of the very best beers of its kind.

And another German with a funky label


Really nice clean Hefe Weizen…

Think that’s it but I’m not convinced πŸ˜‰

What do you think?

Many thanks to Mike Newton who paid us as visit last week and took a few impromptu pictures..


Barley Hops - a beer cafe!

For the full story, please take a look.

Trip advisor again !

Thanks to you all that have provided feedback on TripAdvisor – some great comments and we are now in 3rd place on the position board.

Do we need more – well hell yes πŸ˜ƒ

Just landed…

Titanic’s rather super Plum Porter along with a new one for me, Chocolate and Vanilla Stout….really like the new labels and branding ☝


See you all soon….


Here is the new one from Congletons own Front Row – this is a uniquely hopped pale called “99” – coming in with an ABV of 4.8% – this is a different hop to ones we’ve tasted before – so get down and try it.

Also is MillTown from Happy valley (Bollington) a 3.6% Mild – however we believe this to be more a dark beer – great flavour for its strength – very deceiving little number πŸ˜ƒ

Finally Great hecks Citra – 4.5%, golden and fruity – very tasty.


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
