J W Lees Stout
Manchester's rain is infamous, but it's made us who we are. Not only did it help create our textile industry, but it's inspired some of our greatest names, from Lowry to Morrissey to Michael (our Head Brewer). JW Lees Stout is a dark and brooding ale that takes its inspiration - and its main ingredient - from those same northern skies. Made with pride using the finest northern water.

Bottled Beers & Ciders
Peroni Nastro Azzurro
Since 1963 Peroni Nastro Azzurro has been created by Italians with craftsmanship, passion and flair to offer a delicate balance of bitterness and citrus aromatic notes with a surprisingly quick & dry finish.
Birra Moretti is still brewed to the authentic recipe that was created by Luigi Moretti in 1859 in his beer and ice factory in Udine, north east Italy.
The ultimate Italian lager since 1859, Birra Moretti's special blend of high quality hops creates a smooth, full bodied beer with wholemeal bread top notes which are cut by a delicate citrus note.
Brooklyn Lager is a direct descendant of the pre-Prohibition favorite Vienna lager style, displaying a firm malt center supported by refreshing bitterness and a floral dry-hopped aroma. A true American original, it's smooth, refreshing and versatile with food. Whether it's your first craft beer or your hundredth, you'll find Brooklyn Lager as robust and inviting as ever.
Every sip leaves you wanting more – our ERDINGER wheat beer with fine yeast is the crowning glory of traditional Bavarian brewing skills.
The strength of this classic wheat beer lies in the harmonious balance it achieves between the various aromas. Gently spicy wheat and yeast aromas blend with mildly bitter hops. The invigorating carbon dioxide ensures its typical liveliness. A premium beer whose full-bodied yet elegant character leaves a lasting impression of ultimate Bavarian enjoyment. A truly unique wheat beer!
ERDINGER Weißbräu allows its top-fermenting specialty to mature in the bottle in the traditional manner, just like champagne. This wheat beer from Erding offers more than just sparkling refreshment – it gives a true taste of Bavaria.
Corona has been brewed and bottled in Mexico since 1925. It is lighter than traditional beers, with a crisp and refreshing taste. The aroma is fruity-honey with a touch of malt and the flavour is crisp and well-balanced between hops and malt, toward the malt side.
Whatever the time of year, Corona is best served ice cold ad with a wedge of lime, that both complements and intensifies the flavour.
Corona's superior taste profile is due to the fact that our brewers take great care to use only the best ingredients available, made with the finest quality blend of filtered water, malted barley, hops, corn and yeast.
Brewing a great tasting alcohol free beer, is it even possible? Our master brewers started from zero and spent years exploring, brewing and tasting before they finally created a recipe defined by its refreshing fruity notes and soft malty body - perfectly balanced with only 69 calories.
Brewed with the uncompromising Heineken characteristics since 1873. And made with natural ingredients including Heineken's unique A-Yeast. It wasn't easy, but not impossible.
