In my opinion the beer of the moment. Fantastic modern bar with the full array of their beers to sample. Very friendly staff and they have a great shop too selling ales and merchandise. Definitely one to put high on your list to visit. Cheers

Ok, so I love Cloudwater beers so this will be quite a biased review. I spend quite a bit, per can and on tap, to drink this away from Manchester. So I was prepared to spend LOTS when visiting this place. Imagine my surprise and...More

We’ve just been asked to leave the premises because we have our 8 month old daughter with us. There are no notices, and we’d been standing there for about 10 minutes with the pram. I won’t be heading back

Very disappointed with this brewery tour and tasting. There was no tour to speak of. The group just stood in the middle of the production room whilst a very poor talk was given to explain how they make the beer. The guy conducting the tour...More

Great beer tour. Very knowledgeable brewer. He made it very interesting without getting too technical. This seems to be a labour of love rather than an attempt to make a lot of money. New brews all the time, 150 planned for the coming year! And...More

Although off the beaten track Cloudwater Brew Co amply repays your efforts in getting there. Knowledgeable and friendly staff and a relaxed vibe generally make the place a pleasant spot to sample the many and various brews on offer, I loved the session IPA personally...More

I didn't see anything up to say you couldn't bring children, but I'd probably advise against it - it's just a warehouse of benches with people drinking and there's nothing to hold a child's interest.
