Runaway Brewery ales and beers

We brew unpretentious, great tasting, modern beer that appeals to anyone looking for real flavour in their drink, and who is prepared to try new things to get it. We brew by hand in small batches at our microbrewery in central Manchester. Our beer is unfiltered, unpasteurised and conditioned in keg and bottle to retain as much flavour as possible.
