Tipsy Angel in Warrington

Dave White of Wigan CAMRA has told me that the Lower Angel in Warrington that I wrote about on 31st December will be opening its own microbrewery within the next few weeks.  He said the brewery will be called Tipsy Angel, although that might have been a joke. I've occasionally heard murmurs about a new brewery here for a year or two, and I'm pleased they weren't just rumours.

This will certainly improve the beer situation in Warrington, which was poor when I was a student in the 1970s (choice of Greenalls and Tetleys) and wasn't much better a couple of years ago when I went on a pub crawl in the town. The Albion on Battersby Lane is a great pub (I went to one of its beer festivals in 2009), and the Lower Angel has served decent beer for a good while, but overall Warrington hasn't been well served by breweries and pubcos over the years.

I look forward to hearing about the new brewery and trying its products.

  1. Hi
    The Tipsy Angel brewery is now up and running, Aidan's first brew was Angel's Folly, a dark stout based on the old Walker's Falstaff ale.
    They shifted 4 x 9's on Friday 29th April, I luckily managed to get in for a couple before it went. A bitter is due next, I gather.
    Cheers
