Alphabet Steeplejack (Smoked Porter, 5.3 ABV%)
A paean in porter form; for both the rich industrial heritage of Manchester, and the respective smoked beers which were integral to the beer journeys of several of the Alphabet brew team.
Pomona Island Factotum (Pale Ale, 4 ABV%)
This is an all day, everyday, any day, today, PA.
Cloudwater Double Dry Hopped Pale (Pale Ale, 5 ABV%)
Cloudwater’s double Dry Hopped Pale is brewed to soup up your downtime by delivering the hop flavour intensity of their DIPAs at a moderate ABV. Doubling their standard Pale Ale’s 8g/L dry-hopping rate to 16g/L delivers a bold, juicy, hazy, and intensely aromatic beer.
Blackjack West Coast Session IPA (IPA, 4.5 ABV%)
The best of both a sessionable pale ale and the punch and kick of an IPA. A West Coast inspired hoppy little number for supping. Changing hops to finish each time. This batch is fully hopped with Citra and then dry hopped with cryo Citra.
Marble Dry Hopped Sour (Sour, 5.3 ABV%)
Dry hopped, mixed fermentation kettle sour. Citra-Melba edition. Zingy. Flavoursome. Refreshing.
Track It’s All Relative (Pale Ale, 5 ABV%)
This pale ale is juiced up with Track’s house water chemistry but with a lower finishing gravity; giving it a more refreshingly crisp flavour profile. The vinous, lemon peel & pleasantly herbal character from the Nelson Sauvin marries up to the ripe orange flesh, papaya & grapefruit flavours of Citra.
Manchester Union Lager (Lager, 4.8 ABV %)
Soft water is vital for making great lager, and Manchester has got the softest in the UK. Brewed using a decoction mash brewing technique not even attempted by over 99.5% of UK brewers. However most of the best central European and Czech breweries produce lager this way.
Shindigger Festiva (New England IPA, 4.4 ABV%)
New England style session IPA with a wonderous blend of our favourite hop varieties of Citra and Amarillo. The secret ingredient is letting the yeast ferment to a Samba playlist on repeat.
Thirst Class Ale Hoppy Go Lucky (Pale Ale, 4.2 ABV%)
A hoppy session pale ale brewed with US Amarillio, Citra, Centinnial and Cascade. Fruity citrus with a subtle malt backbone.
First Chop Salford RED (Red Ale 4.6 ABV%)
A modern take on a classic beer style, it has a wonderfully deep red colour that comes from the specialty Cara and Crystal malts. First Chop use a mixture of Chinook and Columbus to bring a nice pine aroma and flavour to the deep body of the beer. Cascade is also used to add a slight grapefruit edge and round out the aroma and flavour profile.
Beatnikz Republic (Pale Ale, 4 ABV%)
Boardwalk is a gluten-free pale that uses Ekuanot, Amarillo, Mosaic and Centinnial hops to create a hop forward fruity pale that delivers on taste. Clean, crisp and refreshing.
Seven Bro7hers Juicy IPA (IPA, 6 ABV%)
A hazy, hoppy, fruity IPA. Brewed with oats and torrefied wheat for a full body with residual sweetness then dry hopped for tropical, stone fruit and citrus aromas.
Please note: we want to get you beer delivery to you as quickly as possible so in the event that we run out of a particular beer, or the brewery runs out of a specific beer then we'll substitute it for one of equal or higher value. Beer shown is representative only of beer in the case.
