Hopping his way along from the Unicorn Brewery, Froginson can usually be found at one of Robinsons Brewery’s 260 pubs across the North West (but he especially loves his Stockport pubs!). Usually found in the company of Unicorn, Old Tom and Dizzy, his ancestors have been brewing beer in Stockport since 1838.
Proudly sponsored and designed by Robinsons Brewery
One of the UK’s largest independent family brewers, Robinson have been brewing ales in Stockport since 1838 with an impressive estate of 360 pubs across the Derbyshire, the North West and Wales.
The Unicorn Brewery in Stockport is one of the most advanced and sophisticated breweries in the UK and home to the largest hopnik in the world. It’s from here that we apply decades of creativity and experience to create exciting new varieties and flavours that will lead us towards our next award-winning beer.
Our family of ales includes heritage brews such as Old Tom (first brewed in 1899 and winner of The World’s Best Ale) and Unicorn (born in 1896 and gold medal winner at The Brewing Industry International Awards), with lively young ales such as Dizzy Blonde and TROOPER (one of Britain’s most innovative beers; created with heavy metal rock legends Iron Maiden).
