Frodsham microbrewery is a small, friendly, craft based brewery and shop. Barrie and his wife Hazel run it, with assistance from Paula in sales and Ken, the drayman.
If you go and visit the brewery you can taste some beer, talk to the brewer and buy some of the quality products.
The plans for opening a micro-brewery started in 2004 when the brewer Barrie Davidson and his wife Hazel decided to open a micro-brewery. Barrie left his job as a Community Regeneration Officer with a local authority and decided to attend a practical brewing course at BREWLAB, University of Sunderland.
Barrie and Hazel's plans were to open a brewery where they lived and persisted in trying many sites to locate their brewery. Consequently the name Stationhouse came from original plans to open a brewery at a redundant railway station in Frodsham.
With help from Frodsham Forward and Vale Royal Borough Council, Barrie and his wife Hazel succeeded in establishing a brewery in Frodsham. In October 2007 the brewery moved to Lady Heyes Craft and Antique Centre, Frodsham.
After only two years brewing the brewery won a bronze award at the 2007 Great British Beer Festival with a beer called Buzzin’. You can buy this beer and others from the variety of brews produced by the brewery.
