Party Beer


Our shop is open every Friday 9am to 4pm for beer sampling, bottles and party beer.  About once a month we have Tasting Days where we have our brewery tap open with a wider selection of ale.  Look on Facebook for dates.


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.

Swan Gold is our most popular party beer.  The pricing, inclusive of duty and VAT, is: 9 pint mini cask £19, 18 pint polypin £28, 36 pint polypin £50, 72 pint firkin £90.  We also offer Ruffled Feathers and our seasonal specials in party beer format.

Usually party beer is prepared ready for the weekend and can be collected between 9am and 4pm on Fridays.  We can also courier fresh beer to your home, holiday house or wedding venue at a charge of £12.95 for sizes up to 36 pints.  Please contact us on, through our contact form or 07377 728822. We’ll finalise the details of the beer that you require, send an invoice and despatch the beer on an overnight service to arrive ready for your family get together, stag do or holiday.

For the 2 larger quantities of party beer, 36 or 72 pints these are available also in traditional format.  Guidance can be given on how these are to be set up, settled and dispensed.  We may be able to deliver these larger casks to your venue.
