For June we have chosen Wigan based micro-brewery AllGates as our Brewery of the Month.
Founded in 2006 by local licensee Ian Thorpe and businessman David Mayhall, this small pub and brewing group create fine craft beers from their fully restored 19th Century Grade II-listed, tower brewery in the heart of Wigan.
The inspiration behind their award-winning range of beers comes from both the strong industrial heritage of Wigan and a forward-thinking imagination. AllGates have created modern and exciting ales based on traditional cask methods but with the additional flavour of New World hops. The result? Beers with a true Northern soul. Their full range includes modern pale ales, IPAs, lager and Russian Imperial Stouts.
All their beers are mashed together by hand using only the finest ingredients. – including Maris Otter malt for extra depth and flavour and a variety of hops sourced from around the world.
To quote them directly – “AllGates brew the sort of beer we like to drink. We brew distinctive modern beers. Our beers are full of flavour, handmade, bold and personal and brewed by people who love their beer”.
We’ll be showcasing a selection of their fantastic ales throughout June.
