"In May 2014 we opened our brewery tap, the Old Volunteer in Carlton Square, Nottingham www.oldvolunteer.com
. The pub has nine real ales on hand pull, five of which are Flipside brewery beers with four regularly changing guest beers. We are proud to be both CaskMarque and LocAle accredited and take great pride in the quality of our beers. You will always find Flipside's multi-award winning Russian Rouble available on tap here. The Old Volunteer also offers a range of craft keg beers, bottled Belgian beers and over 40 whiskies from around the globe (but mainly Scotland J). Complementing a small but excellent food menu, great decor and an excellent, friendly and welcoming atmosphere, a visit to the Old Volunteer is not to be missed"
"We are delighted to be producing one of the best beers in the country, Russian Rouble. This is I a 7.3% Russian Imperial Stout and has won the Midlands Region SIBA competition for cask Premium Strong beers for two years running and early 2014 won a National Bronze award in that category. This year we entered the bottled version for the first time and we won a Gold Award for the SIBA Midlands Region in the Bottled Porters, Milds, Old Ales and Stouts category, followed by a Bronze medal over all bottled categories.

Flipside Brewery is based in Colwick, Nottingham and supply many of our local pubs with our beers as well as the general public. After a lot of thought about a name for a brewery we came up with Flipside, a reference to the coin collecting hobby of our head brewer. This also provides the theme for the names of the beers which are loosely based around coins and currency, apart from when we can’t resist using the word "flipping"!
Most of our beers are delivered directly over a wide area, but are also available through a select number of national and regional wholesalers. Keep an eye open for our beers in your local and if you don’t see them, ask for them!
We started production as a six barrel brewery in May 2010. After three years we had outgrown our original business unit and were struggling to produce enough beer with the equipment we had so we moved three doors down to a unit giving us four times the space. At the same time we upgraded our equipment to a twelve barrel brewery and added some sophistication to the brewing process by adding an auger/hydrator, temperature controls on the hot liquor tank and fermenting vessels and adding in a top of the range cask washer.
We receive many requests for pump clips. High resolution copies of our pump clips can now be downloaded from here
