Our Brewery started to produce and sell quality ales in the spring of 2003. The brewery consisted of a 2 ½ barrel system purchased from the Wolf Brewery in 2002.  It soon became apparent this was far too small and a 5 barrel brewing plant was sourced from the Tomlinson brewery 6 months later. Despite producing award winning ales, we believed consistency and quality go hand in hand and whereas the 5 barrel plant could produce quality ales it was never going produce the consistency we required.

In late 2008 the decision was taken to purchase a new brewery.

The new brewery is full computer controlled with a 25 barrel plant and the capacity to produce 21,600 pints a week all housed in 7000 sq. Ft building.

George Wright’s has the ability to Cask, Keg and Bottle all under one roof.

George Wright Brewing Company produces both consistent and high quality ales demanded by all our customers.

Excellence and Professionalism

Our dedication to excellence in brewing shines through in the Award-Winning beers we continually produce.

Our dedicated team source only the finest natural ingredients and we use  expert blend malts, hops and yeasts to suit a variety of beer styles from light to dark, malty to hoppy and session to strong. The brewing methods we use are traditional so the produce are truly hand crafted. 

Personalised Approach

Not only inspired by the history of British beer making, we have also been influenced by South America and leading local Master Brewers have visited our Brewery to help develop an exciting new range of beers. We like to think we have found a good balance between traditional British beer, European and the South American craft revolution. Ultimately, we produce beers that we like to drink; well balanced and packed full of flavour.


Over the years our core beers have won silver and gold regional and national awards with the SIBA.
