It brings us great pleasure to announce that we have won a bronze medal at the prestigious International Brewing Awards in March 2017, held at the National Brewery Centre in Burton upon Trent for our red ‘rye PA’ cask ale Urban Fox.
Urban Fox was awarded bronze in the highly competitive Class 1 for ale 2.9%abv to 4.4% abv small pack category facing stiff competition from all over the world.
Our Head brewer Stefano Occhi commented “we are thrilled and honoured to receive the bronze medal for Urban Fox and hope this is the first of many more awards to come. We have worked hard to create a portfolio of craft ales that really show what a small craft brewer can achieve. To receive such a prestigious international award is a real feather in our cap, especially given the IBA’s are known as ‘the Oscars of the brewing industry”.
Bootleg Brewing Co started brewing in 2010, housed in the Horse & Jockey pub and is currently the only brewery in Chorlton. The micro-brewery was converted from the shell of the tower where the old disused brewery once stood and still remains there to this day.
Since our humble beginnings, we have expanded our range of craft beers to include other local classics such as Chorlton Pale Ale, Fools Gold, Cheeky Monkey and the soon to be released Snifter, a chocolate porter in time for Easter. The brewery currently has a permanent range of five cask ales and further six seasonal ales.
As well as our range of successful cask ales, we also have a formidable range of craft keg products including two craft lagers Spin Doctor and Vinyl Tap. A recent addition to the range is Bootleg American IPA., a big IPA with big new world flavours that’s generating a cult following in the bars of Manchester and beyond.
