We produce two distinct ranges – classic traditional real ales and modern, edgy craft beers.

Pete uses knowledge and brewing skills learnt from his many years of experience with top quality North West Breweries making traditional cask ales.

Mark specialises in brewing modern craft ales for customers wanting to taste something more edgy and different from “run of the mill” lagers.

Pubs with a strong passion for real ales are bucking the trend with real growth to match

Among pubs with a focus on quality cask ales, the vast majority report increased interest and sales in traditionally brewed beers over the past few years.

Licensees also say that cask is attracting new drinkers, 55% believing the growth in sales to be the result of the rising popularity of cask with a new younger consumer. Tiring of bland Lagers, these new cask drinkers are knowledgeable, adventurous and know what they like!

Dunscar Brewery has, through years of experience, developed two ranges of cask, designed for both traditional and newcomers to craft alike, but with the same objective – beer to come back to again and again.

What our customers say

The Black IPA is like a cross between a traditional mild and a Guinness but not so heavy. Pour me another Kevin!

Had a great pint of Blonde at the Cross Guns last Sunday – just right as usual!

IanCross Guns - Egerton

“I like a good session ale and Dunscar make several lighter coloured ales with great flavours with just the right amount of hoppy-ness.”

Real support from real people

From traditional beer to modern ales.

From the picture its clear we take after our beers – we’ve got a Blonde, a Red Ruby, a Tasty Geezer,  one’s definitely Stout and a few that are as good as Gold and a Daft Apeth or two…but fortunately no one is Bitter and twisted!

We’re all proud Northerners brought up on the same water that feeds our brewery and makes our beers taste so good. It’s not just ours – the whole community of brewers in the Bolton area benefit from water that even Burton is jealous of, and its turning the town into a centre of brewing excellence we can all be proud of.

All our team share a passion for delivering great product with great service.  We give fantastic support, help and advice to all our clients because we know that if our beer pleases… you’ll be back for more next week…simples!!
