First Chop the award winning brewery sprung from humble beginnings. Created by chef, creative and restauranteur Rik, the beer was originally born from his acclaimed bar and restaurant of the same name in North Manchester.
The lines continued to evolve depending on Rik's passions and feedback from customers. One of the favourites is AVA - a Mancunian take on a continental golden ale and a recent edition.
As well as seeking out fresh flavours, Rik was passionate about making sure the beer was accessible to all.
First Chop has led the way in gluten free craft beer production. All First Chop beer is vegan and the majority of the range is gluten free, just look for the cross grain symbol on the cans.
