Frodsham Brewery is a small, friendly, craft based brewery and shop, run by Barrie ‘The Brewer’ and his wife Hazel.
We began brewing in 2005 and since then have won many awards for our beer, as well as having a reputation for quality ale and a worldwide fan base.
In particular after only 2 years brewing, we won a Bronze Medal for Best Bitter at the Great British Beer Festival 2007.
Since then we have won SIBA (Society of Independent Brewers) North Gold Medals for Best Bottled Bitters for Frodsham 800 (2009) and Devil’s Garden (2010). Most recently we were winners of a Bronze Medal for Aonach in the Champion Beer of Cheshire 2012.
The brewery was recently featured in Cheshire Life (January 2013).
Barrie and his wife met in the late 1990s when they both worked in the voluntary sector and moved to Cheshire to start a new life together.
Barrie changed jobs to work as a regeneration officer in various local authorities whilst Hazel moved into economic development at the NW Development Agency.
In 2004 they decided to get out of the rat race and to set up the micro-brewery and the rest is history.
Our Sales Manager is Maria and our weekend shop assistant is Frances.
They are the public face of the brewery as they meet and greet customers to the shop.
Another key member of the team is Ken, our drayman, who is a firm favourite with the pubs where he delivers casks of our beer.
All our beer is brewed, bottled and casked on site. We use only natural products to ensure and uphold the real ale reputation of handmade, quality bottled beer. The effort we take to produce a superior locally brewed beer comes through in the taste.
We consistently produce high quality beers with our own original recipes - we never blend or copy beers! All our beers are of distinction, honest & true.
All our beers are bottled and labelled by hand on site and available at the brewery shop. Bottles are also available at several Farm Shops and Garden Centres including Rivendell and Grosvenor Garden Centres, Vinea and Ship in a Bottle Liverpool and the Hollies at Stretton.
