Where can you find Phipps on draught?
We are delighted with the support of so many pubs and clubs who have stocked Phipps on draught as a regular beer. We also appreciate those outlets who have added us to their guest beer programs.
In just one year Phipps beers were sold in over 150 outlets across, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire Nottinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire and even Essex. Not quite back to Phipps' hey day but a cracking start!
Phipps traditional beers are being sold in many of our old pubs that have become independant freehouses as well as others that had no link to Phipps but specialise in Real Ales. The beers have also found favour in a number of gastro pubs with a modern atmosphere and younger clientelle. Whatever your taste or style, why not visit one soon and have "a pint of history in your hand"?
Feedback from several drinkers under 30 tells us that our bottled IPA tastes great from the fridge?
