Meet The Brewer: The Bootleg Microbrewery

Join us at The Albert Square Chop House for an evening celebrating the best of British breweries. First up, The Bootleg Microbrewery – Chorlton's only brewery.

It's a chance to meet Erin and Lloyd, the award-winning Bootleg brewers. You'll get a real insight into their brewing process, and, of course, sample some of their fine beers.

There's a £10 deposit to secure your place – don't worry, you'll get it back on the night in the form of two beer bats – so you can really appreciate the fruits of The Bootleg Microbrewery's work.

And if you fancy some home-cooked, traditional British food, all our Classic dishes will be a one-off price of just £10. Choose from Home-made Corned Beef Hash, Wild Mushroom Wellington, Fish, Chips and Mushy Peas, and The Famous Steak and Kidney Pudding.

Places are limited so book now: call us on 0161 834 1866 or email enquiries@albertsquarechophouse.com.

The Bootleg Microbrewery - Chorlton’s only brewery

The Bootleg Microbrewery started brewing its first ale in 2010 and has since won a number of awards for producing fine beers.


Erin has been a brewer at the Bootleg Brewery since it was established in 2010. She developed the recipe for Chorlton Pale Ale in 2011 which has become the brewery's best-selling beer. Erin built up significant experience in the pub trade before training as a brewer.


Lloyd has been a brewer for Joseph Holt since 2009, working first as a ‘hands on’ assistant brewer, and more recently as trade quality brewer. He has an MSc in Brewing and Distilling and is currently studying for the Master Brewers qualification.
