THE RANGE

We take heavy influence from American style beers and our forte is for session beers. We love the citrusy flavours and aroma from hops and source the world's best from the West Coast of America, Australia and New Zealand. The majority of our beer goes into keg, but we also do some bottles and cans.

Drink beer, get wisdom.

Our story

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 house parties. It was here the first seeds of ShinDigger were planted.

In 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.

We do what's called gypsy brewing. This means we don't actually own a brewery. We develop our own recipes. And then brew them on another brewery's kit.

To date we have released over 10 beers that are available from Aberdeen to London and even export to Hong Kong. We currently brew 6,000 pints per week.

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

The team

GEORGE, CO-FOUNDER

What motivates you to work for ShinDigger?

Firstly, the independence of being your own boss. To work to your own values and be in control of your own destiny.

Secondly, the creativity. I see ShinDigger as an extension of my own identity and a way to express myself. Also to take an idea in your head and build it in the real world is a highly satisfying process.

What motivates you to work for ShinDigger?

At ShinDigger we are simply creating the beers and experiences that we would want from our ideal brewing company. 

It's our art, and I get an intrinsic kick out of seeing other people enjoying something that we have worked so hard to create. 

We've only just scratched the surface though. I'm buzzing about our vision that we will be trying to bring to reality over the coming months/years!

What motivates you to work for ShinDigger?

I've known George since we were at school together, so I've been following the exciting ShinDigger journey the whole way. 

Having come from working at a large corporation I jumped on the opportunity to join the ShinDigger team.

I love the challenge. The culture is completely different. We take risks, get things wrong, but we're a team that is pushing the boat out. It's exciting!
