Campaign for Real Ale
Bluestone Brewery

Out of the blue in autumn 2012, Glen Speak and John Chadwick decided to start a micro brewery.

Legend has it that the 'Bluestone' from the local quarries form the foundations of some famous landmarks including the Eiffel Tower and Trafalgar Square (and is the name of the business were the brewery is housed).

So Bluestone Brewery set to work formulating a couple of beers, EPA and AKA, and after about three months of 'testing' these were sold in casks to the pub trade, mostly at first to our tap the Sportsman in Whitworth.

We have never been able to brew enough beer due to time and space limitations, by early 2014 we are about 3.5bbl capacity with another regular beer, Quarryman's Stout and up and coming Spodden Pilsner.

We take great care to keep our products as clear as possible, mash recirculation and double dropping is included in the process for all our beer. We design and manufacture as much of the equipment as possible ourselves.

Hopefully the next stage would be dedicated premises and more capacity, here's to the future!

Britain's pubs are under severe and sustained pressure. CAMRA predicts that up to 7,500 pubs could be lost by the end of 2012. Pubs play a vital role in the social life of communities up and down the country - and are an essential part of promoting a more responsible drinking culture. It is time to stand up for a Great British tradition and save the pub.
