RedWillow Bar announces beer list for #BackInMacc

P1020651Remember the name of the bar above, write it down on a piece of paper along with “get me home instructions” and shove it in your pants as an emergency reminder, as you may not recall even who you are after sampling this tippedy-top collection of beers put together by Toby & Caroline Mckenzie and their fine team at RedWillow Bar in Macclesfield for this weekends “Back-In-Macc” #Twissup event.

Hot off the presses this very afternoon, they promise a full tap list featuring one-off brews, limited editions and cask specials that even the trendiest of trendy central London bar dwellers would kill for. It’s as you would say, “Totes Craft”

We also hope to have brewers in attendance from Summer Wine, Cheshire Brewhouse, Five Oh Brew, Wharfebank, Quantum, OffBeat, Otherton, Axiom, Weird Beard, plus of course the RedWillow gang (maybe more), all milling about for a chat, IF you can drag them away from the bar…


Wild Beer Co/Burning Sky/Good George Brewing – Schnoodlepip, 6.5% Sour/Wild Ale  (Pink Pepper + Barrels + Passion Fruit + Hibiscus)

Buxton – Red Raspberry Rye, 4.9% Berliner Weisse with Raspberries

RedWillow – Gin & Tonic Saison, 4.2% Saison with Lemon Grass and Juniper berries (unfined)

Roosters – Baby Faced Assassin 6.0% IPA loaded with the American Citra hop

Quantum – Black IPA

RedWillow – Faithless 35, 4.9% continuously hopped with Cascade, it’s seriously hoppy but nicely balanced

Five Oh Brew Co – Hibiscus IPA *Exclusive brew for BackInMacc (one keg only)

Otherton Ales – East Indianman

Summer Wine – Mauna Kea IPA, 6.2% Hawaiian IPA Citra/Sorachi/Mosaic & 100kg of tropical fruits

RedWillow – Homeless

Camden – Unfiltered Hells Lager, 4.6% Hells Lager (that’s unfiltered)

Marble/Beermoth IPA, 7.2% A big and bold American style IPA  with a distinctive U.S hop character provided by a generous volume of Simcoe, supported by Columbus and Centennial hops.

Broad Oak – Vintage Cider (for one of your five a day)

Prosecco – (Non beery option)


RedWillow – Thoughtless Imperial Stout  9.4% Rich coffee with a hint of smoke and a long lasting bitterness, surprisingly drinkable. Note: One of only three casks anywhere, one is at the brewery ageing, the other is destined for a northern beery outlet..

Burning Sky – Devils Rest IPA, 7.0% Huge amounts of Simcoe & Centennial hops find their way into the kettle, with even more sneaking in post fermentation for a ‘proper’ IPA flavour.

RedWillow – Faithless 34, 4.2% Raspberry and Ginger Saison

Wharfebank/Broadford Brewer – Ro Sham Bo IPA, *Tri-brewer collab for BackInMacc

RedWillow – Headless, 3.9% Pale Ale

Rioja cask matured cider
