First Chop Brewing Arm

Hey! Manchester is proud to announce a new partnership with First Chop, the Salford-based brewery.

Operating out of a Railway Arch in Sunny Salford, which also contains a secret garden and sound system, First Chop Brewing Arm are crafty brewers of the highest order. They produce a range of uncompromising, hop forward brews.

First Chop Brewing Arm was born in 2012 with a borrowed brewery and an inkling it could make great beer. First Chop is now fully operational in its own 8bbl brewery, with hundreds of satisfied drinkers agreeing they make gooood beeer!!

The beer is made with only the best traditionally produced Maris Otter floor malt from Warminster Maltings and the best whole hops. Beer is a pretty simple recipe – as is the brewing arm’s philosophy on it: treat the finest ingredients with the respect they deserve, and their quality will shine through.
