Preston firm's milkman style beer deliveries are a hit
Now that’s an unusual way to get a pint!
A Preston-based company has begun delivering alcohol to people’s doorsteps - in milk bottles.
Beer Brothers, based at the Walton Summit Centre, make craft beers.
Phill Leyland, along with friend David Reece, founded the business in 2015 and have noticed that online orders from the local community are rapidly increasing during the Covid-19 lockdown.
“We know how difficult it is for people to get their essentials on lockdown,” said Phill.
“This whole concept makes buying beer an easier process for people. It’s fantastic to see our regular customers and local community supporting us and feels good to be able to support them back.
“People can’t get good quality beer as easily now because they are isolating.”
Beer Brothers have two delivery vans and have been getting up to 50 orders a day. Phill added: “It has been hard to continue as a business of our size. It is important for us to make the most of this situation and ride it out.”

A number of local firms are also delivering alcohol to people’s homes.
Among them are Black Powder Gin in Wheelton; Crankshaft Brewery in Leyland; Cuckoo Gin in Brindle; DVino Wines in Preston; FullaLove Wines in Longridge; Goosnargh Gin; Plau in Preston, and Silver Fox Wines in Preston.
