Brewing started in November of 2010 and ‘Copper Plate’ a 3.8% abv session bitter was overall winner of the Bury Beer festival later the same month. We now have four more standard beers named after the works these are:

‘Steam Plate’ Best Bitter 4.3%abv
‘Iron Plate’ Lancashire Stout 4.4%abv
‘Tin Plate’ Dark Mild 3.6%abv
‘Richard Mason’s 1888’ Pale Ale 4.0%abv

To celebrate the opening of our brewery tap in August 2011 we brewed two summer ales namely ‘Mad dogs & Englishmen’ IPA 5.5%abv and ‘Lightweights & Gentlemen’ a refreshing light pale ale 3.2%abv.

We are still working on parts of the brewery to improve and add to the character that is Irwell Works Brewery.
