Why not Waddle down to the brewery this Friday night


Come and try our new India Pale Ale (Indian Runner) with a delicious pie from the Chapeau Café

What better way could there be to start a Bank Holiday weekend than with a couple of pints and a delicious pie with good company in a beautiful place?

We think it sounds just perfect!

Brewery Tap Night

First Friday of every month

Open 5:30 pm until close

It won’t just be any ordinary night at the brewery either.

We’ll have our brand new 4.1% ABV session IPA on tap – brewed with all-British hops.

The zesty beer has a tang of grapefruit and lime in its flavour. It takes its name Indian Runner, from the ducks that feed outside the brewery on our spent grain each day.

Of course, we’ve got, gin, wine and cider lined-up too.

Delicious pies and peas are coming from the Chapeau Café and Farm Shop at Marton. The chef will be joining us and will be available wax lyrical about the wares from 6.00 pm

To top things off the Met Office is promising good weather. So, we have great expectations of being able to make the most of our beer garden and gazebo in what has to be the most picturesque brewery location in the country.

We do hope you’ll come and join us and if you can’t make it on Friday we’d love to see you any time over the weekend.

Join us at the National Sheep Dog Trails

Competitors from all over England converged at Macclesfield this week for the National Sheepdog Trails – a tradition that goes back to the 1920s. The winners will go onto the National Championship.

As an avid supporter of country traditions and local activities, it seemed appropriate that the Wincle Beer Co. should be there too. There’s lots to do with a craft fair and fell race for those who have the energy.

We can think of nothing better though than sitting back in the sun with a bottle of your favourite beer while the dogs do all the running. So if it sounds like your kind of thing then rest assured that supplies of our bottled beers are plentiful and you can get your hands on our Summer Lass too.

The trials run from Thursday 6th to Saturday 8th August.

Venue: Sutton Hall, Macclesfield, Cheshire  SK11 7TX

Everyone is welcome to the Trials. Bring your well-behaved dogs on leads please.

It’s more fun than mowing the lawn


You could spend Bank Holiday Monday mowing the lawn and painting the garden fence. Or you could spend the afternoon in spectacular surroundings enjoying a few pints of tasty beer – the choice is yours.

If the latter takes your fancy, then why not make your way down to the beer tent at The Wildboarclough Rose Queen Fete & Fell Race where The Wincle Beer Co. will be providing refreshments.

For some it sounds like a serious event but you don’t have to be a rose queen and you certainly won’t have to do any running to earn your pint.

The fete will be held in the garden of Crag Hall on Monday 26th May. The gates open at 1pm and the Rose Queen Procession begins at 2pm.

So why not come down early, make yourself comfortable and fritter a little time away.

Needless to say, a good range of Wincle’s best beers will be on tap throughout the event and rain or shine it’s bound to be better than mowing the lawn!


Wincle characters spring up in Buxton

Here at the Wincle brewery we are getting more requests than ever from folks who want to drink our beer.

Thirsty tipplers from far and wide are searching out their nearest draught and bottle stockists. And so to make life easier we are on a mission to ensure that Wincle’s beers are never far away.

On Friday 14th March the Wincle Beer Co. will be exhibiting at the Peak District Trade fair along with some of the best artisan food and drink producers from the region.

A cask or Rambler will be in tip top form for licensees, beer buyers and independent retailers to sample. There will also be a range of bottles, and personal appearances from a few of the characters who appear on our now infamous pump clips and labels.

It promises to be a great event in the Devonshire Dome, Buxton. And best of all it’s a great opportunity for pubs and retailers to help quench the thirst for our Eccentric English Ale.

We hope to see you there.

Have you got your most important Christmas provisions?

With the clock now ticking and the countdown to Christmas underway, thoughts at the Wincle brewery have turned to ensuring that nobody needs to miss out on their favourite tipple.

We have spent the past few months brewing frantically to make sure that we have ample stocks in bottle and cask. All that remains now is to ensure that supplies are in the pubs, shops and homes in time for festivities to get underway.

As ever, supplies can be collected from the brewery shop or ordered online for delivery direct to your door. We will also be attending farmers markets at Knutsford, Northwich, Wilmslow, Rode Hall, Sandbach, Bakewell and Macclesfield Treacle Market in the run up to Christmas. All of our regular beers will be in stock as well as our festive 8.5% ABV Wassale to give you a warming glow.

This Saturday at Northwich Artisan Market

Artisan Market Northwich LogoWith conkers now falling from the trees and autumn being well underway, it’s a great time of year to get out to the local markets.

That’s exactly what we’ll be doing in Northwich this Saturday the 12th October, when Hayley will be at the bustling event for the first time. The artisan market is held on the second Saturday of every month and boasts over 80 stalls of the finest food and drink along with arts, crafts, music and entertainment.

So look out for Hayley and our great range of Wincle’s beers including our medal winning, bottle conditioned Mr Mullins. which this year was singled out for a top award in the prestigious International Beer Challenge.
