We have some great and exciting news to share with you!

American IPA - Silver Award from SIBA
American IPA – Silver Award from SIBA 2018

Due to the huge success of our keg and bottle version of Spin Doctor beer, we are thrilled to announce for the first time we have canned our premium indie lager.  Spin Doctor lager has the glorious aromas of Ella and Summer Australian hops. Ella brings light, fruity, gently herbal notes which blend perfectly with the balanced melon and peach characteristics of Summer hops. It’s certainly a refreshingly different spin on lager and perfect for the warmer months in Manchester.

Our excitement does not stop there, as well as adding to our large range of products, we have also won a SILVER award at the recent Independent Beer SIBA Awards in the North West, Keg Premium Bitters & Pale Ales category.  To celebrate our Silver award win from SIBA, we also canned American IPA – our latest beer that’s been a big hit with beer drinkers in our beloved city. The American IPA is a crisp, smooth, pale ale, packed with juicy American hops.  A big IPA with big New World flavours!

The cans are perfect for outdoor beer garden sessions and offer a new refreshing way to enjoy our delicious beers! The beer cans are available at the Horse & Jockey pub in Chorlton as well as at selected pubs and bottle shops across the North West.

Bootleg Brewing Co. Head Brewer; Stef Occhi commented; “This is an exciting time for our brewery and I am absolutely delighted that we now have two fantastic beers available in cans. It is both a joy and a pleasure to see something that was developed at our 3-barrell plant in the Horse & Jockey pub be turned into cans – just in time for Summer! We hope our customers and first-time triers enjoy the beers!”.
