Hopsters News

Whats Growling?

We now have a Growler at Hopsters. Whats a Growler I hear you ask? Well, it's a beer distribution system that purges the flagon ("Growler") with CO2 before it fills. This means the beer stays fresh for up to a month!

What's on this week:

Wylam Last Shot at Heaven. Quad Hopped Pale Ale £7 a litre

Ampersand Cocow. Chocolate Milk Stout £6 a litre

Coming soon:

Chorlton  Mosaic Oatmeal Stout 

Beavertown Bloody 'ell Blood Orange IPA

Growler Tuesdays! 10% off Growler refills every Tuesday! 

About Us

So, what's it all about?

Hopsters is a craft ale and specialist spirits retailer in the East of England. We sell local, national and imported beer and always aim to give you something different from the rather boring selection down the local supermarket.

We regularly update our stock so there's always something new for you to try. Check out our blog for the latest flavours.

Pop in and say hello to our ale loving staff and get involved with a local beer revolution

Beer Tasting events

Our next night is our first ever Vegan taster night! Tasty Vegan beers and pizzas ahoy! 

Corporate/Private events

Hopsters can host a beer tasting event for your company/club/friends that will introduce you to an amazing array of craft ales.

We have several different packages including  tastings, talks from brewers and gourmet food to match the beers. We also do a cracking Vegan night!
