Phipps NBC has returned to its roots in a Victorian brewery in the heart of Northampton, 40 years since we left. Since April this year our Albion brewed beers have been available throughout the East Midlands again.
More historical brews from the company's glorious past will return alongside those we have been producing since 2008. New beers will be developed to take Phipps into it's third century. We have brought the original yeast strain back to life and put it work in the Albion Brewery. Former Ruddles and Grainstore brewer John Smith has taken up the post of head brewer in Northampton, providing an unbroken link of experience and practice stretching back 213 years to founder Pickering Phipps. The Phipps and Ratliffe families are once again part of the company. Hoggleys' Northamptonshire Ales will also be brewed in the Albion and delivered by our fleet of drays
Phipps, probably the best revived, heritage brewery in the world, as they might say further down Bridge Street!
