About the Runaway Brewery

Runaway Brewery makes great tasting modern British beer.

We are independently owned and brew by hand in small batches at our microbrewery in Manchester. For us, flavour and quality always come first.

As brewers, we respect brewing tradition though our beer is contemporary in style.

As drinkers, we want to enjoy every beer that we make – so for us, brewing isn’t just about the end product, it’s about the process. So it’s worth doing right.

Our beer

Our beer is internationally influenced, but recognisably British.

We brew a small core range of beers complimented by regular favourites, plus seasonal specials and collaborations to explore new ingredients and ideas.

We brew a range of styles, from hop forward pales and IPAs, to malt driven brown ales and porters; from yeast led Saisons, to beers inspired by place, era, or a specific ingredient.

All of our beers are unfiltered and unpasteurised, with the majority naturally conditioned by yeast in keg and in bottle.
