A small pub and brewing company in Lancashire, AllGates was founded in 2006, re-establishing brewing in Wigan town centre after a forty year absence of the industry within the town. Evening tours of the brewery are available Monday to Saturday and begin in the hospitality bar where you can enjoy a pint of the good stuff whilst the tour guide takes you through the buildings’ history and background. Next you will be guided around the building, where you will delight in viewing each stage of the brewing process and be told the technical processes necessary in brewing up AllGates. Once suitably clued up on the goings on of the brewery, head back to the bar where you can sample a variety of Allgates finest beers.

Also available is a traditional Wigan ‘Pie & Pea” supper which is included in the price and is ideal for lining the stomachs of keen beer testers. This is served at AllGates award winning pub The Anvil, which is just a two minute walk away and has received recognition from CAMRA , making it one of Wigan’s most popular venues. For a real English pint visit the AllGates brewery and discover what real British ale is all about.
