Christmas

Yeah, sorry, Christmas, it starts scarily early each year.  Just a short note to say if you’re looking for somewhere kind of unique, like our Brewery Bar, for a party then drop us a message through our Contact Us page.  We’ve loads of contacts for bands, catering and we don’t charge for room hire other…

Nantwich Food Festival

Finally sat down in the local pub with feet up and reflecting on what a great weekend I’ve had at Nantwich Food Festival. I’ve been as a customer before for the past few years and loved it so it’s been a big step to take a stall and get involved. It’s been hard work and…

#StillBrewing

It all starts with a mash whether it’s brewing beer or distilling gin so for September and October we’ve gone on the hunt for the people who do both.  We’ve got a great line up of beers and an extra 15 gins to add to our fabulous gin menu.  Beers will be in a variety…

Crewe Rail Ale Festival

We’ve had a couple of enquiries about opening times the weekend of Crewe Rail Ale Festival 8th – 10th September so to clarify we will not be open on the Saturday due to another commitment but will be open 5 – 10pm on both Thursday and Friday evenings.

In shocking news

Michelle is planning a November holiday so it may mean the bar is shutting for a weekend at some point but we will, as always, keep you posted. We won’t have any Saturday opening until 30th September as we’ve a crazy busy month with Nantwich food festival, Crewe beer festival the Wheels of War Dance…

Confidence restored, or starting!

I need to make a confession. I’ve been avoiding brewing since the drainage has been sorted and the plinth sealed up. My confidence has taken a big knock, the fear of it still flooding out next door was kind of over whelming and then a burnt flavour started to develop on the beers. I asked…

Tap7 #SummerOfBeer

For the hop heads visiting our bar in the #SummerOfBeer, tap 7 has been the one to look out for. It's hosted the fabulous Catatonic collaboration from Salopian and Tiny Rebel, Magic Rock's High Wire Grapefruit, Burning Sky's Easy Answers amongst others. So we had to find something new and stumbled across this from Little…

Children policy

We've always been a pretty laid back kind of place and child friendly but after recent customer feedback we will ask that all under 8s are off site by 8pm on all nights. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

#SummerOfBeer Saturday

After a rather fabulous #FirstyFriday we open today 2pm to 10pm. We had a couple of beer changes last night; the lager tap has changed to Cheshire Brewhouse’s Dane’ish and the Notting Hill Amber is almost gone and will be replaced with o’Haras Irish Stout. Looks like I’ll be going beer shopping again this week!…

#FirstyFriday today

Next month it’ll be 5 years since the first ever #FirstyFriday, we’ve come a long way, there’s been lots of changes along the way but the principles remain the same; turn up, drink beer (although we now have a great gin list along with other spirits, wines, ciders, soft drinks etc.), listen to a great…

Saturday shenanigans 

So it’s another #SummerOfBeer Saturday but it’s also the day we hopefully get the brewery back together.  The plan is still to be open 2pm to 10pm but there may be odd curses coming from the work crew as they get things sorted! Despite the torrential rain it was another great, busy evening yesterday with…

End of Day 3

Here’s the aerial view of the finished plinth, looks the business and can’t wait to get back to brewing.  Brain is already ticking over on a couple of new recipes… As it stands the beer and cider lines for the main bar are all cleaned and connected up, we’re aiming to get the second bar…
