Burscough Brewery Launch

I've had an e-mail from Kirk Harrison who tells me that the brand new Burscough Brewing Company is launching its first beers on Saturday the 18th December at 1.00 p.m. They are:
  • Priory Gold 3.8% (a pale session beer with a distinct bitterness and hoppy citrus notes).
  • Ringtail Bitter 4.2% (a triple hopped ruby ale with well balanced bitterness and fruity notes).
The new brewery is located in a cobbled courtyard to the rear of the Hop Vine pub and is housed in old stables. This is the second brewery in our area and is a welcome addition to the local real ale scene.

Finding it: the Hop Vine is on the main road through Burscough, the A59, and is a couple of hundred yards from Burscough Bridge station and about half a mile from Burscough Junction. The train journey from Southport is about 13 minutes. Postcode: L40 4BY.


  1. No local busses running and not able to use the car as there is a three foot snowdrift across the drive. All that lovely beer to try and here I am, writing on this blog!

  2. I'd have to agree that drinking beer is far better than reading this blog.
