Welcome To Big Hand Alehouse Chester
In 2013 Big Hand Brewing produced its first pint of beer. Since then Big Hand has been on a journey to produce beers with broad appeal, because everyone deserves great beer.
Finally, all our travels have brought us to the basement of Watergate House, Chester, just a stone’s throw from the historic Roman City Walls and Chester Racecourse.
Our Alehouse in Chester is much more than a showcase for Big Hand Beers - our mantra being 'Think Independent, Drink Independent'. This means we source Ales, Porters, Stouts, Lagers and many other less well-known beer styles from independent breweries and suppliers in the UK and beyond.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Big Hand Alehouse and hope that you will join us in this venture and the rest of our journey.... Dave & Andy
Whilst you can always expect to see a couple of Big Hand Beers on the eight cask ale beer engines we promise to have a constantly changing line up of cask ales from Independent Breweries from around the UK. Something for everyone.
Cask not your thing? How about a British Craft Lager? We have chosen Freedom Four from Staffordshire as our ‘Go To’ lager.
Continental import? We do that. Dunkels? Sure to feature. Helles? Yes, but we won’t make that our ‘Go to…”. IPAs, DIPAs, Wheat beers, Stouts, Porters, it just goes on.
Have we missed anything? Be sure to let us know and we will add it to the list!
