Beer label identity for Manchester micro brewery, real ale at its best. First beer went on sale as a test brew on Sunday 17 October 2010. The date will go down in history. In November 2010, they won their first award at the Bury Beer Festival, which awarded Contraband a silver in the “beer of the festival” category. They have sponsored several festivals, most recently the Stockport Beer Festival and their very own Chorlton Beer Festival, for which they brewed a beer specially for the occasion, a smooth easy-drinking stout which the organisers dubbed “Stout Clement”.
The plan is to ultimately have 3 in-house cask beers on sale, and 3 guests. The in-house ales will consist of a resident beer, a seasonal beer, and a one-off. We gonna have some fun making these! In the future, guided tours are planned for people to learn about the brewing process and see it in both a historical and contemporary context. The microbrewery is headed by Erin Guy, who is one of just a handful of brewsters (the term for a female brewer) in the country.
