Nestling in the heart of the Wirral countryside lies the home of Trapper’s Hat Bitter. Brimstage Brewery was established in October 2006 and was the first brewery in operation on the Wirral since the closure of Birkenhead Brewery in the mid 60s. The brewery drew inspiration from its surroundings and the strong agricultural history in the area. The animals found in our beer designs are often spotted on the Leverhulme land on which we are based, giving the brewery a strong link to its location and traditions.

We have a dedicated team coming from all walks of life headed by founder Neil Young. We only ever use the finest ingredients available. This is reflected in Trapper’s Hat Bitter, Scarecrow Bitter and Oyster Catcher Stout being presented with “Beer of the Festival” awards from CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale). Trapper’s Hat Bitter has been a Champion Beer of Britain finalist in 2009 and 2010.

Our main trading area is within 30 miles of the brewery covering the Wirral, parts of Cheshire, Liverpool and North Wales.


Buy beer directly from the brewery

From 1 October 2017 you can buy your favourite Brimstage Brewery beer directly from the brewery itself.

Packs of 12 bottles, 36 pint ‘polypins’ and larger casks are available.

We don’t have a shop so if you’d like to arrange to come and pick some beer up, please email sales@brimstagebrewery.com or call 0151 342 1181. You’re welcome to pop in if you’re passing but as a working brewery we can’t guarantee we’ll be able to serve you, so best to arrange a time and ensure what you want is in stock.

Along with beer, we also have glasses, polo shirts, beanie hats, pump clips and beer mats for sale.

We currently only accept cash or cheques and a deposit may be required on the larger casks.
