Hophurst Brewery are a pioneering microbrewery producing finely crafted ales from the heart of Wigan Borough. Masters in the art of brewing, we develop exemplary and flavoursome beers using traditional and artisan ingredients. Distributed regionally through 9 gallon casks and bottles.
We are unique in the industry as the first social enterprise microbrewery that re-skills and employs people over the age of 50 through our training and re-skilling programme. Our mission with this is to give new vigour, new passion and new purpose to an often overlooked community demographic.
Founded by head brewer Stuart Hurst the Hophurst tagline 'Crafted with a Conscience' is no marketing gimmick. Along with his unquenchable passion for producing craft ales Stuart's background as a council project manager saw him develop and deliver community projects that reskilled the disadvantaged and enabled individulas to re-enter the labour market and gain previously unattainable employment. Combing these 2 areas of expertise gave birth to the concept of a social enterprise microbrewry - up-skilling our local community through the art of fine brewing.
