Jen's Birthday


Due to the quantity drank at the Whisky and Haggis night Jen's birthday turned out to be very relaxed (compared to last year). After a trip to the Christmas Markets in Manchester a few pints in the Tap topped off the day!!!

Haggis and Whisky Night

The Bank Top lot braved the cold weather to attend a Whisky and Haggis tasting evening (some of us managed to get breakfast as well). An eventful evening in a lovely home filled with food, alcohol and only a little blood shed! A result all round.

A Brewery Trip with a Twist!

Bank Top Brewery was host to a charity event last week. The charity in question was Paws for Kids. This charity aims to support women, children and their pets who suffer from domestic violence in the North West. Paws for Kids helps to provide a fresh start for the women involved by offering the

"opportunity to become part of a meaningful, nurturing programme aiding the development of emotional and relationship skills."

The evening consisted of a brewery trip, games, introductions to a snake and drinking! Paws for Kids is helped by your donations, check out their website:

If ale is not quite your thing the Tap's new wine list may be more to your taste! Their new suppliers Morgenrot Chevaliers are keeping them topped up with a refreshing Pinot Grigio from Italy, a full bodied Merlot from Chile, as well as a Fruity Zinfandel from the USA and many more.

Having a BBQ?

As it is said (just like every year) this year is supposed to be the hottest in a long time so what better way to celebrate this than with your own barrel of Bank Top Ale.
An event was held in just that way on Sunday, with the BBQ of Katie, Kev and Nigel where a barrel of Old Slapper quenched the thirst of the rabble above.

Get your orders in now!!!!!

Quote from a Customer

Having had Bank Top Brewery Tap open for a couple of weeks now people have had time to formulate opinions of the place. Although many kind and positive word have been said about the Tap one has stuck in Dave's mind and he has asked me to pass it onto you all and this is it

"This place is an oasis in a sea of SH*T"
