Lovingly Crafted Ales
Turton Wines has been enjoying expanding our craft brewery range of ales over the past few months. Our shelves are looking fantastic! Let's take this opportunity to explore the new breweries we have welcomed.
RIVINGTON BREWING CO (Bolton)
Rivington lies in the woodlands and farmland of the hilly outskirts of Bolton. Rivington Brewing Co was founded in 2014 as a modern craft farmhouse brewery and tap room, focusing on innovative modern styles, while drawing inspiration from the past. They draw ideas from around the world to create the best beer in styles loved by the local northern communities, treading a line in their geographical placement on the cusp of both countryside Lancashire and urban Manchester.
Their range includes: Beach House Pale, a pale ale brewed with Motueka, Mosaic and Simcoe; Home Pils, a pilsner Hopped with Tettnang; and Soon I'll Be On Fries, a Porter with blackberries, raspberries, blackcurrants and a touch of vanilla.
NORTHERN MONKEY (Bolton)
Another superb Bolton brewery, Northern Monkey take a different angle and embraces the history of the town's industrial past. Founded in 2016 by people with a passion for drinking real ale that progressed into home brewing and then a business, they have gained fantastic local support and now sell independently to beer-lovers throughout the North West.
Their range includes: Boats 'n' Hose, a DDH Citra pale boasting big tropical fruit flavours; and Bit Of A Rum 'un, a rum & raisin stout made with The Salford Rum Company’s finest mixed spiced rum soaked in juicy raisins.
BEATNIKZ REPUBLIC (Manchester)
Manchester is known for being trendy, and Beatnikz Republic epitomise this in their location in the Green Quarter. Their ethos is to continually "Create, Refine, Repeat" - creating beers that they themselves would want to drink, refining these recipes over time, and repeating the process until they, and their customers are happy.
Their range includes: Our Man In Berlin, a raspberry Berliner Weisse packed with fresh Scottish raspberries; Prague Away, a full-flavoured unfiltered pilsner made with Tettnanger hops; and Surf Etiquette, a soft hazy NE IPA using Sabro, Citra and Ekuanot hops.
ALPHABET BREWING CO. (Manchester)
Another excellent Manchester city brewery, Alphabet Brewing Co match great design with great ales. Since 2014 they have made hop-forward and fruit-led beers designed for everyone to enjoy, striving for quality and letting their passion show through their beers.
Their range includes: Supermarionation, an Anglo-American red ale hopped with Brewers Gold and Bramling Cross; Making Pints For Nigel, a straw-coloured Manchester-style best bitter; Oolong Slayer, a light pale ale, hopped with Enigma, Nelson Sauvin, and added oolong tea; Libussa, a dark lager with a complex 7 malt base and Saaz hops; and Juice Spingsteen Deluxe, an even fruitier blend of their popular original session IPA full of tropical fruits.
MARBLE BREWERY (Manchester)
The oldest of our Manchester trio, Marble Brewery have been brewing since 1997. Forward-thinking and genre-defining, they started with more traditional cask beers brewed in the back room of the grand Victorian pub in Ancoats. Their years of knowledge and growing demand from their breweries/taphouses in Manchester city centre has led to their excellent contemporary craft beers being produced from a new, state-of-the-art brewery in Salford.
Their range includes: Berimbolo Blonde, a dry hopped blonde ale of Enigma hops backed up by Amarillo and Mosaic; Manchester Bitter, their popular traditional core beer using speciality malt for a deep golden and robust bitter; and American Pilsner, a crisp, clean and very drinkable pilsner.
YONDER BREWING (Somerset)
Moving just a little out of the North of England, we go all the way to Somerset! Yonder Brewing create ales from their modern farmhouse brewery in the Medip Hills. They brew beers inspired by their passion for three things: foraging, flavour and fermentation. Using lots of local ingredients, including locally wild and foraged, to truly gain a sense of place.
Their range includes: Subculture, a pale ale brewed with Jester and Olicana hops; Acapella, an unfiltered heavyweight pilsner-style lager; Boogie, a modern reinterpretation of English Bitter; Coolbox, a refreshingly balanced Helles lager; and a Raspberry Gose, with 170 grams per litre of British raspberries for tart flavours, a smoothie-like body and saline lick from Cornish sea salt.
