Words: Hophead


These guys embody the craft beer ethos from the ground up. A true love of beer, a vision to create their own brews and the drive to make it a successful business.


‘ShinDigger was born whilst Paul and I (George) were living together at Manchester University. We jointly invested our spare cash into a home-brewing kit. The beers were brewed in the kitchen and fermented in the basement of our student house. We soon began selling our beer at student house parties. It was here the first seeds of our business were planted.

bottles-123In Autumn 2013, armed with a small loan from the government we started delivering kegs to bars around Manchester out the back of Paul’s banged up hatchback. At the moment we are gypsy brewers – brewing at different breweries wherever we can find space.

The name ‘ShinDigger’ embodies our ethos that beer is about having a good time with your friends and enjoying the moment.’
