New Beers

We are constantly reviewing our range and introducing new beers. In 2012 we introduced 3 new beers, which have very quickly become firm favourites with our regular customers.

Frodsham Gold
ABV 4.1%

A light gold beer. Rich hoppy flavours with a spicy tang.

Where did the name come from?
2012 is London Olympic Year!
Originally named Olympic Gold Ale. Made with a golden hop from New Zealand.

Dark Ark
ABV 4.0%

A dark malty beer, rich raisin and fruit flavour. Choicest hops giving a deep, dense and complex aftertaste.

Where did the name come from?
Frodsham Brewery ran a competition to name a beer for Manley. Children of the village used to play on the railway bridge across Dark Ark Lane, Manley. When the children banged on the steel railings above the ark, the reverberations could be heard for miles!

ABV 4%

Golden floral hoppy ale, specially brewed to help restore the Daniel Adamson.

‘A quaffing beer for all the crew’

Where did the name come from?
We are working in partnership with the Daniel Adamson Preservation Trust to raise money for the restoration of a unique steam ‘tug tender’ that once plied the waters of the North West until 1984.

New from June 2013

We have recently designed a new beer to be called Flaxon Jade (alc by vol 3.7%), a blonde beer with lemon and black pepper flavours.

Also we are planning to introduce a Barley Wine (alc by vol 8.5%) which will be available in bottles only from September 2013.
