Producing fine craft ales for delivery or collection.

Our Brewery was founded in 1993, the idea of Bill Allingham, the youngest son of the family. Edward Allingham, Bill's elder brother has since taken over the brewery and runs it as sole proprietor. With the ever-increasing demand for the superb award winning beers Early in 2002 equipment was purchased to bottle beers using traditional methods. This is still our method of choice today. Bottles are now enjoyed across the whole of the UK. Business as usual, when we are not in a global Pandemic, comprises of a wide range of festivals and events across the UK. We are also proud to distribute our cask ales to over 150 real ale pubs and inns across the country and look forward to regaining contact with our wonderful customers in the near future.

Work is the curse of the drinking classes.

Well what can I say about this little beauty its strong BUT with the smooth taste of a session ale no bitterness like most strong ales its refreshing and surprisingly light it’s a beer for all seasons it’s one which I certainly will purchase again. Mayhem

I discovered Leatherbritches and Bounder at a food festival in Tamworth and thought I’d treat myself after finding the brewery on line. Ordering was easy and delivery prompt. My next order will also include a selection for my son in law’s birthday, plus an extra box for me.

A limited edition IPA produced for the Covid-19 lockdown. Love the labelling on this, a bit Banksy inspired? A delicious IPA. I started out buying just 3 bottles to try it and have been back twice now for the full 12 bottle box on both occasions. Fairly strong pale ale it’s everything i like in an IPA. It’s converted me from being a darker ale drinker (Old Speckled Hen, Abbott et al). I have now seen the light !
