A craft beer brewery could be about to open its own bottle shop in Preston’s new market.Advertisement
Owners of Priest Town Brewing have applied for a licence to open their new premises at Box six of the market, which has recently reopened following a major refurbishment.
The bottle shop would feature the company’s selection of speciality beers including Ribbleton Red, Harris Stout, Livesey’s Lager, Addison’s Ale, PR2 IPA and Zingari.
All the beers are hand bottled and hand labelled.

A range of brewery’s merchandise will also be provided including a variety of t-shirts.
Priest Town Brewing hope to provide beers from other local breweries at their shop including Beer Brothers and Crankshaft.
The brewery is ran by my major stakeholder Ian Stezaker, along with John Turner and Rob Ardron who both own 10% of the company.
Ian Stezaker said: “We are planning to open a bottle shop to sell our products direct to the public.
“Lots of love goes into each bottle of beer, which are all Preston-centric.
“We currently have a range of six Proper Tasty Beers and a selection of t shirts.
“We also intend to stock beers from as many of the other recently opened local breweries such as Beer Brothers up in Walton Summit and Crankshaft down in Leyland.
“Local beer for local people.”
The new shop is still being considered by Preston City Council and you can view the full application on the council’s website.
