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 shop is open Wednesday – Friday 12:00 – 18:00 and Saturday 12:00 – 17:00
  • The brewery is closed Sunday & Monday. We are here on Tuesdays for brewing and administration and so can take orders over the phone for delivery/ collection in the week.
  • 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

  • Most of our cans and bottles are gluten free. However, we sometimes use ingredients which will result in higher than usual gluten content, for example an increased proportion of wheat, or the inclusion of oats which can result in them not being GF. Please always check the information on the web shop product page, or on the can or bottle before you purchase it.
  • 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.
