Exciting beer-related news everyone! We’re collaborating with Rivington Brewing Co. to brew a unique beer for our opening at the end of May — with the help of local tea and coffee company Exchange Coffee Co..
After months of operating as a delivery service and as a bottle shop, we’re super chuffed to be almost ready to open. We’ve not announced our grand opening weekend dates yet because we want to be absolutely sure we won’t be delayed by last minute building work or government lockdown surprises. But, we will be announcing it soon. Make sure you’re signed up to our newsletter to hear about it first.
Brewing with Rivington Brewing Co.
We’re collabing with Rivington to make a Belgian Wit with a citrussy twist, using Orange Oolong Tea from Exchange Coffee Co. in Clitheroe to give it a citrus boost. Ideal with El Dorado, the delightfully fruity, orangey hops we’ve used.
The beer will be available in pubs and bars around the North West from late May in cans and in some kegs too, and will also be poured at the Rivington Brewing Co. tap room at Home Farm, Rivington.
Opening Corto has been a long time coming, especially after the disaster that was 2020, and we’re really excited to be able to create a beer to celebrate its opening weekend with a brewery we rate so highly. When we open we’ll have their flagship Pale Ale “Never Known Fog Like It” on a permanent draught line at Corto, exclusive to us within Clitheroe.
Rivington are up there with the best breweries in the country for us — the fact that they’re local is absolutely ace! We’re so lucky to have them so close by and to be able to count them as friends.
The yet-to-be-named beer brewed by Rivington Brewing Co. and Corto will be available in can as well as keg in local independent bars and bottle shops later this Spring.
Corto’s opening date will be announced at the beginning of May. Anyone interested in making reservations should sign up to the Corto newsletter via www.cortobar.co.uk where opening announcements will be made first.
