Manchester Star

Strong Ale First Brewed in 1884

Tasting Notes

We uncovered the Manchester Star recipe in a hundred-year-old brewer's note book when we were collaborating with Garrett Oliver from Brooklyn Brewery. First conceived in 1884, it's a grand example of our forefathers' craft - a dark ale, with chocolate, malty overtones and a warming finish thanks to plenty of chocolate malt, Golding hops and 100% British ale malt. We suspect we'll still be making it in another hundred.
