We are thrilled to announce our Green Hops Beer that was recently grown fresh from the rooftops of Horse & Jockey pub where our micro-brewery is based has been harvested and fermented to create a new autumn beer.

The beer is a single hopped pale ale and has been named Chorlton Green Hop paying homage to the way it’s been brewed. As most hops are dried before use, whereas our method has been to pick the hops, and use straight away. This unique ale uses fresh Centennial hops directly from the bine to maximise the beer’s aroma giving floral and lemony scents that derives from centennial hops, it is light in colour, refreshing and full of taste.

Chorlton Beer & Cider Festival have teamed up with Chorlton’s own Bootleg Brewing Co to offer a local home brewer the chance to have their own beer on sale at the festival and in selected Holt’s pubs across the area for Manchester Beer Week. The beer will be brewed in time for the Festival and Manchester Beer Week at the brewery at The Horse and Jockey Pub.

The winner of the Home Brew competition will brew their recipe on a commercial scale with Stef Occhi, Head Brewer for Bootleg. The winning beer will be racked into casks for Chorlton Beer Festival and sold through selected pubs in Manchester. You will name your own beer when you enter and the Bootleg Brewing Co will design a pump clip for the winner. On top of that, The Bootleg Brewing Co will also bottle some of your beer for you to take home.

Stefano Occhi or Stef as he prefers was been appointed head brewer of Bootleg Brewing in December 2016.

Stef who hails from Milan, Italy has a Masters in Brewing Science from Nottingham University and has been working with the Joseph Holt Head Brewer Phil Parkinson.
