About Us

Welcome to Bank Top Brewery, Bolton's oldest and most acclaimed brewery. Thank you for visiting our website, where you can discover more about our great range of award winning beers and then buy whatever you need. We have a simple belief at Bank Top... making fine ale in a traditional manner with a great customer service… enjoy.

Best of the Rest

The Bank Top classics, our core beer range is well known both locally and across the country and includes award winners like Port O'Call, Flat Cap and Pavilion Pale Ale to name but a few.

This range of sought after beers is only available at certain times throughout the year, Leprechaun Stout (February to March) Herkules (October to January) and a treat for the festivities Santa's Claws (November to December).

At Bank Top, we have two Special ranges we brew throughout the year, Lunar Series as their titles suggest are all based around the Moon's phases, each one having its own unique character.

As Bolton’s oldest established brewery and rightly gaining its own heritage, our Industrial Heritage Range is a nod to the old mills in Bolton and the workers that kept them going.

Occasionally we’ll be contacted to get involved with good causes, in the case of the two below they both really struck a chord with us. If you’d like to discuss collaborating on a brew for your charity then give us a shout.

Our Pubs

A modern approach to a ‘traditional' pub, both the Tap and the Ale House have no TV, Juke Boxes or Fruit machines. Quiet background music and beer gardens with heated areas create a comfortable atmosphere for the true beer enthusiast.


Our Brewery

Founded in 1995 and located in the former mill village of Bank Top in the north of Bolton, we are housed in the picturesque grade two listed tennis pavilion. The pavilion houses our custom-built 11-barrel brew plant from which we brew on average 22,000 pints per week.
