Stubborn Mule Brewery


We're a fiercely independent family brewery getting on with brewing exactly what we like: Modern beers, conditioned in keg, cask, bottle and mini-keg - with in-house canning coming soon.

In early 2017 head brewer and owner Ed Bright relocated a backyard hobby to premises on the outskirts of Altrincham, and overnight brewery capacity was expanded from 100l to 10BBL.

On the back of quality beer and regular Brewtaps we've built up an ace following around Manchester and now supply some top venues around the Northwest.

We love mixing it up, from IPAs to Stouts, through Modern Milds to Murky Pales. Our ever expanding range is sold in keg, cask & bottle year round, with can-conditioned beer available for summer 2019. Everything we make is naturally conditioned in-house because it works best for us - and you. Keg & can conditioning helps absorb O2, making beer taste fresher, longer., it also adds a subtle bit of flavor to our beer’s profile.

All our beers are either vegan or vegetarian.
