we’ve been brewing modern beer from our Victorian redbrick building in Leicester city centre since 2016.
As Leicester’s first craft brewery, we are proud to be part of our city’s rich cultural present and are inspired by its craft-driven industrial history.
Our limited edition beer is brewed from a handsome Victorian red brick building in Leicester’s industrial heartland.
We brew a considerable range of permanent and seasonal beers as well as more experimental pattern-numbered beers which cover the full gamut of beer styles… the pattern numbers relate back to the patterns used by Framework knitters after which we take our name.

Our Leicester bitter is a modern take on the classic English style. Malt-forward and balanced, the perfect amount of Bramling Cross hops create a hop aroma in the finish, offering hints of dark hedgerow fruits. A beer that will please traditionalists and modernists alike.

Framework knitting machines were at their best when they had 16 needles to the inch... this is our beer equivalent. A combination of Simcoe, Comet & Galena hop fruitiness, a crisp nose and the signature Framework bitterness ensure a broad, easy-drinking appeal.
