Since its creation in 1828 by a retired cotton manufacturer, Greengate Brewery has been home to JW Lees in the northern reaches of Greater Manchester. This family run business has seen six generations of Lees and of late they have been pushing forward with collaborations with local Manchester craft brewery, Cloudwater, celebrity chef Marco Pierre White and renowned physicist Professor Brian Cox.
We have a range of Barley Wine that is specially brewed once a year with the first harvested hops of the season. Combined together with the finest British malt, each vintage has its own unique flavours which develop over the course of time. The result is a rich, toffee-tasting, fruity-smelling brew. Perfect for special occasions.
Along with these special bottles we have in stock the legendary Moonraker - a strong, dark ale with a fruity aroma and a curious legend - and the golden classic, the MPA - a golden ale with a hoppy character. These long-standing beers are a staple of JW Lees.
All JW Lees beers are Vegan
