Connoisseur Ales is St Helens’ newest brewery and, although only established in September 2014, it is built on many years' brewing experience.
The team behind the brewery – Mark, Gillian and Kevin Yates – are formerly of Liverpool's 'Pub of Excellence' The Baltic Fleet and Cheshire's former ‘Pub of the Year & 'Cider Pub of the Year', The Albion in Warrington. Brewer Mark was apprentice to Stan Shaw of Wapping Brewery.
The brewery has, since its inception, proved popular with many local pubs in St Helens and around the North-West and has received good feedback from local and national beer festivals. Bottling commenced late in 2014 and bottle-conditioned ales are available direct from the brewery, as are 36-pint casks, perfect for parties and barbecues. The brewery also stocks a wide range of fruit wines and mead.
At Connoisseur Ales Brewery we have been working hard to craft and introduce our new range of real ales. Why not get yourselves to down to St Helens and join us for one of our open days?
