Wincle Beer Co. was set up in 2008 from a redundant milking parlour, on a working farm set within the Peak District National Park.
Following an extensive 4 month course at Brewlab at the University of Sunderland, our first beer rolled off the production line in August 2008 after first being relentlessly critiqued by our ever-growing testing panel.
We enjoyed immediate success and encouragement at Tamworth beer festival where we won a silver medal.
Our original plan was to take life easy, do the odd brew and spend the rest of the time whittling. However, people loved our beer and we couldn’t brew it fast enough.
We are now brewing flat out, 5 days a week and have now moved to a beautiful stone barn with a new state of the art 15 barrel plant, right in the heart of Wincle.
