Welcome to Blackedge Brewery

Blackedge Brewery was founded in 2011, born of Shaun and Wayne’s passion for good beer. What started out as a hobby is now a fully operational 10 barrel micro brewery located in Horwich on the edge of the West Pennine Moors. The name is a combination of our respective homes, Blackrod and Edgworth.

Our dedication to excellence in brewing shines through in the Award Winning beers we produce. Using only the finest natural ingredients, we use an expert blend of crushed malts, hop flowers and yeasts to suit the particular beer style.

The brewing methods we use are traditional so the products are truly crafted by hand and we don’t rely on technology to do all the work.

Inspired not only by the history of British beer making, we have also been influenced by our visits to the US Pacific West Coast where we have consumed many different beers in lots of superb craft breweries across Portland & Seattle.

We like to think we have found a good balance between traditional British beer and the American craft revolution. Ultimately we produce beers that we like to drink; well balanced and packed full of hoppy flavour.
