  • Our postcode is M26 1AD, and we are at Unit 10 on Dale Industrial Estate – Google Maps may take you into Radcliffe centre – this is wrong. We’re on the industrial estate behind Asda in Radcliffe, next to the Bury Hospice unit (2nd exit on the Asda mini roundabout)

  • As of 01/01/2022 all our beers are brewed to be gluten free, however it’s important to note that occasionally we may create a new beer recipe which is not GF due to ingredients. We always indicate on the can/ bottle/ cask & keg label clearly whether the beer is GF or not.
  • Each beer also has an allergen information box on the web shop where you can see this information before you buy. Please always check the information on the web shop product page, or on the can or bottle before you purchase it.
  • We brew our beers in the normal way and use an enzyme which removes gluten to sub 20ppm levels (gluten free as per the law). New brews that we create are laboratory tested (Elisa Gluten Test) on initial production and certified. The core range beers are checked and certified when first created, and are tested regularly but not every batch: These beers are brewed each time to GF standard. NB For comparison, Crossed Grain products are only required to be tested annually, we test more frequently than this.
  • Bag in box are now gluten free.
  • The mini-keg products are gluten free.
  • If you are unsure or require further guidance, please get in touch
  • Unfortunately our suppliers say that mini-kegs are not able to be re-filled, however you can re-cycle them in your domestic bin.
  • The bottles we use are one-use glass, so again please re-cycle them at home.
  • Most of our cans and bottles are suitable for vegans, however we sometimes use ingredients which do not suit the vegan ethos; most often this is lactose, but occasionally ingredients such as honey may be used. Please always check the information on the product page, or on the can or bottle before you purchase it.
  • The bag in box are not suitable for vegans.
  • The mini-keg products are suitable for vegans.
  • If you are unsure or require further guidance, please get in touch
  • If you have had bag in box before, you will know what to expect re carbonation. If you have never used one before, the beer is almost still. It’s a bit like having a scrumpy cider rather than a fizzy one: Still nice fresh beer, but not fizzy with a head like it would be in the pub.
  • We recommend you keep the box in the fridge to prolong the life of the beer. If you leave it at room temperature, especially in the summer, the bag will expand from the natural production of CO2 by the yeast cells, and under too much pressure the bag seals may split.
  • You can keep the bag in box unopened in the fridge for a few days before you come to use it. Once opened, it’s best for the beer if you drink it within 3-4 days. Each beer is different, and each fridge is different which is why we only give guidelines. As a rule of thumb, the stronger & darker the beer, the more likely it is to taste ok for longer periods of time.
  • In quieter times (eg through summer) bag in box will only be available Thursday – Saturday
All of this helps us to make as little impact on the environment as possible, and we’re always trying to find ways to get better.
If you’d like any more information or to discuss our methods in more detail, contact Carley who’ll be happy to tell you all about it.
