Priest Town Brewing is the local craft beer brewery that has recently launched a bottle shop at Preston’s new market.

Originally opening over a year ago, the brewery prides itself on being local beers for local people.

The new bottle shop was opened to sell the brewery’s products directly to the public.

It provides a range of six speciality beers including Ribbleton Red, Harris Stout, Livesey’s Lager, Addison’s Ale, PR2 IPA and Zingari.

A selection of t-shirts are also on offer, and the brewery intends to stock beers from other recently opened local breweries including Beer Brothers and Crankshaft down.

Ian Stezaker set the brewery open after being contacted by John Turner following the Preston BID contest.

Now, Ian is the major stakeholder with John Turner and Rob Ardron both owning 10% of the company.

A spokesperson for Priest Town Brewing said: “The new shop is going well.

“We’ve been really well received and are getting positive feedback about not only local but good prices.

“It has been difficult being up until recently the only box in the run trading but now next door is open and Jonah’s coffee is due shortly, and as our sign has eventually gone up we can only do better.

“Our own beers have gone down great with everyone buying into our Prestoncentric theme.

“In some instances they have gone down too well with us now selling out of PR2 IPA – a new batch is in the tank and will be ready in six weeks.

“The success of our beers has meant that we are in a position to confidently turn on our bigger kit which will enable us to increase production by up-to ten fold current levels.”

The brewery has been going as an official operation for over a year now.
