Founded in 2007, Prospect Brewery is now one of the North West's leading independent real ale brewers. We are based in Standish near Wigan, a town with a strong mining history, and the brewery and the names of our beers are closely linked with the towns heritage and culture.

Our mission, quite simply, is to bring you imaginative but traditional real ales brewed using just four simple ingredients: barley, whole hops, yeast and water.

Our range of 14 real ales, many of them award winners, are brewed to suit all tastes from the light golden beer of Silver Tally to the delicious dark mild of Nutty Slack and onto the dark stout of Big John.

Our beers are available on draft in over 100 pubs across the North West and beyond. Supplied to the licensed trade in 80 pint casks and 500ml bottles.

The Prospect Brewery Team

Our fantastic team of skilled brewers, draymen, and office bods work with one simple goal in mind, to make and sell the best beer, no compromise.

It's a happy team, led by Chief Brewster, Patsy Slevin, well they are working in a brewery after all. With a great team spirit, everyone mucks in to help the beer flow smoothly round the brewery, keeping the casks rolling out of the doors to pubs throughout the North West region and beyond.
