Happy Valley Brewery
Traditional Real Ales made using the Finest Ingredients
David and Nicola Hughes would like to introduce you to Happy Valley Brewery, a family business established in 2010 in the heart of Bollington, Cheshire.
David, a brewer of over 20 years brewing experience, has installed a purpose built, modern Microbrewery. This efficient system will produce a range of Traditional Real Ales using our own unique Lancashire milltown brewery yeast, to tried and tested recipes.
Happy Valley Brewery uses the finest, freshest ingredients always locally sourced where possible. Our first ale was Sworn Secret (Gold Best Overall Beer - Stockport Beer Festival 2011), closely followed by Lazy Daze, Black Magic (Silver - Champion Beer of Cheshire 2011) and recently Black Out XO Rum Porter, Champion Beer of Cheshire 2013.
We are committed to exceeding your expectations and believe the consistency of every pint is of paramount importance.
Give Happy Valley Brewery a try and Taste the Difference. We look forward to being of service to you.
David & Nicola Hughes.
