Party Beer


Our shop is open every Friday 9am to 2.30pm for bottles and party beer.  On monthly beer tasting days we are open longer hours.  We’re also “open” whenever we are on site brewing or racking, which is usually Mondays and Tuesdays but you might have to bear with us if we are at a critical stage!


The larger quantities of party beer available are all multiples of nine; 9, 18, 36, 72 pints.  We prepare the beer in a particular way, which is known as “bright”, so that you can set up and be drinking Swan Brewery ales in minutes; there is no need to wait for the beer to settle.  To allow time to prepare the brights we require 48 hours’ notice.
