Our chosen Brewery of the Month is Beartown Brewery based in nearby Congleton. The picturesque Cheshire town has a fascinating history; did you know that at the time of 1272 the three most senior positions in the town were The Mayor, The Ale Taster and the Bear Warden who monitored the town’s bear baiting. Second fact: in 1584 records show 45 inns & alehouses in the town with a population of just 1000! That’s a seriously comprehensive pub crawl!
Fortunately for you, you don’t have to crawl very far to find great handcrafted beer because we will be featuring the entire Beartown range throughout the month starting in early May including Black Bear, Ginger Bear, Bearly Literate and Bruins Ruin. Alas, we have no need for an Ale Taster as each pint of cask conditioned ale from Beartown is brewed to perfection!
