Northern Whisper Brewing Co. Launch at The Trackside

This event has no upcoming dates

    There's a new brewery on the beat! Northern Whisper Brewing Co. are a brand new brewery based in Rawtenstall, not too far away from our Rawtenstall Station and Buffer Stops Bar. To celebrate this new addition to the area, and the brewing world, we have been chosen to host Northern Whisper Brewing Co.'s Bury/North Manchester launch at The Trackside on Thursday 20 July.

    Meet the guys behind the Northern Whisper Brewery brainchild and sample some of their fayre, from the big, brash, bold and ballsy (their words) "Yammerhouse" Pale Ale to the Koln style lager "Bocholt", a nod to Rawtenstall and its twinned town in Germany.

    More information on the launch will be added soon.
