  • For UK mainland postcodes not covered above, we can arrange next day delivery arriving with you before 16:00 (please allow a couple of extra hours in busy periods) This service requires a minimum of order value of £30 and costs £7. Cut off for next day delivery is 13:00 on the day before required delivery. Thursday at 13:00 is the cut off point for national deliveries before the weekend. Orders placed after this time will be processed on the Monday for delivery on Tuesday as orders which are in the courier system over the weekend have a higher chance of being damaged.

  • Deliveries o the Scottish Highlands are possible but at a different courier rate; please contact us for a quote.
  • Local direct deliveries are usually made between 08:30 – 16:00 Wednesday – Saturday. Local deliveries within 6 miles are usually next day, deliveries further out will be arranged with customers directly depending on postcodes. Monday & Tuesday deliveries may be possible, contact us for further information.
  • Deliveries are contactless, and packages must be left with an adult over the age of 18. We are not able to leave packages unattended if you are not home, but can leave them with nominated neighbours.

THE BREWERY SHOP

  • Our postcode is M26 1AD, and we are at Unit 10 on Dale Industrial Estate – occasionally some sat navs take you into Radcliffe centre – this is wrong. We’re on the industrial estate behind Asda in Radcliffe, next to the Bury Hospice unit (2nd exit on the Asda mini roundabout)
  • The brewery is closed Sunday.
  • We are here brewing on Mondays & Tuesdays so if you pop by and the doors are open you’re welcome to come in to buy/ order beer.
  • The shop is open Wednesday – Friday 12:00 – 18:00 and Saturday 12:00 – 17:00 (again if the doors are open earlier, you’re welcome to pop in!)
  • You’re very welcome to pre-order via our web shop brightsidebrewing.co.uk/brewery-shop however you can also just pop down to see what we have available and have a chat with us to get recommendations
  • You can pay by card or with cash, whichever suits you best

BEER INGREDIENTS & PACKAGING

  • We brew all our CANS & BOTTLES to be gluten free, however it’s important to note that occasionally we may create a new beer recipe which is not GF due to alcohol level or ingredients. We always indicate on the can/ bottle clearly whether the beer is GF or not.
  • Each beer also has an allergen information box on the web shop where you can see this information before you buy. Please always check the information on the web shop product page, or on the can or bottle before you purchase it.
  • We brew our beers in the normal way and use an enzyme which removes gluten to sub 20ppm levels (gluten free as per the law). New brews that we create are laboratory tested (Elisa Gluten Test) on initial production and certified. The core range beers are checked and certified when first created, and are tested regularly but not every batch: These beers are brewed each time to GF standard. NB For comparison, Crossed Grain products are only required to be tested annually, we test more frequently than this.
  • Please note, the bag in box are not currently gluten free though this is something we are working towards.
  • The mini-keg products are gluten free.
  • If you are unsure or require further guidance, please get in touch
  • Most of our cans and bottles are suitable for vegans, however we sometimes use ingredients which do not suit the vegan ethos; most often this is lactose, but occasionally ingredients such as honey may be used. Please always check the information on the product page, or on the can or bottle before you purchase it.
  • The bag in box are not suitable for vegans.
  • The mini-keg products are suitable for vegans.
  • If you are unsure or require further guidance, please get in touch
  • Unfortunately our suppliers say that mini-kegs are not able to be re-filled, however you can re-cycle them in your domestic bin.
  • The bottles we use are one-use glass, so again please re-cycle them at home.
  • If you have had bag in box before, you will know what to expect re carbonation. If you have never used one before, the beer is almost still. It’s a bit like having a scrumpy cider rather than a fizzy one: Still nice fresh beer, but not fizzy with a head like it would be in the pub.
  • We recommend you keep the box in the fridge to prolong the life of the beer. If you leave it at room temperature, especially in the summer, the bag will expand from the natural production of CO2 by the yeast cells, and under too much pressure the bag seals may split.
  • You can keep the bag in box unopened in the fridge for a few days before you come to use it. Once opened, it’s best for the beer if you drink it within 3-4 days. Each beer is different, and each fridge is different which is why we only give guidelines. As a rule of thumb, the stronger & darker the beer, the more likely it is to taste ok for longer periods of time.
  • In quieter times (eg through summer) bag in box will only be available Thursday – Saturday
