About Stubborn Mule Brewery

Small family brewery based in Altrincham, near Manchester. We love nothing more than making tasty, small batch, beers and inviting people to our place to try them. Fingers crossed we can get back to normal soon...

All our beers are individually keg, cask and can conditioned. They're all completely unfiltered and unpasteurised.

Much of the range is vegan-friendly, sometimes gluten free. We use a very traditional and in some places manual process but our outlook is very much that of a professional modern brewery. Our mini kegs have been selling all over the place during lockdown. Check em!!

Signature beer

Li'l Napoleon Pale Ale - 3.9% - Mosaic Pale

Li'l Napoleon is a small beer. Short, cocky and attention seeking.

It's an aggressively ambitious session Pale Ale, a little fella that'll stand out in any company. Loaded with lots of Mosaic and Cascade, and dry hopped with more Mosaic, prepare for a tropical, citrus orange finish with a fruity mid-range bitterness.

An easy drinkin' Pale Ale that's happy to hog the limelight all day long.
