Notice the old Walker's sign.
There is also a brewery in the Tavern, Church Street, Warrington, (formerly Wilkie's Tavern), but I have no further details. Warrington is certainly looking up from the days when we sought any escape from Greenall Whitley beers in the 70s.
The Wayfarer's microbrewery application for premises in Alder Lane, Parbold (previous post here), has received approval, and the brewery will be called the Problem Child Brewery. However, work hasn't begun as the pub was so busy over the holiday period they haven't had a chance to clean out the cottage which will house the brewery. I'm sure they'll get there.
Now we can only hope that we'll get a chance to try these new beers, seeing how pub companies prefer to exclude any beers not on their 'approved' lists. I don't think such behaviour should be legal, but that's a different issue.
