The Titanic Brewery is an independent producer of bottle conditioned and cask ales in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, England. Owner Keith Bott is also chairman of SIBA, the Society of Independent Brewers.

Titanic's beers are generally notable for their light colour, low malt, and high hop content, giving a very dry bitter taste, although Captain Smith's and some of their seasonal beers and ales are dark and malty, though still extremely hoppy. Their seasonal ranges also include lighter and fruity ales such as 2018's seasonal beer, Nine Dogs, which is made with Galaxy hops which give it a passionfruit taste.


The brewery was founded in Burslem Stoke-on-Trent in 1985 by brothers Keith and Dave Bott, and takes its name from the ill-fated steam liner Titanic. It is in honour of its captain Edward Smith (who originated from Stoke-on-Trent) that the brewery is named.[1]


Its 'Fleet' range of beers include:

  • Plum Porter (4.9% abv)
  • Titanic Mild (3.5% abv)
  • Steerage (formerly Titanic Best Bitter) (3.5% abv)
  • Anchor ABV (4.1% abv)
  • Iceberg (4.1% abv)
  • Titanic Stout (4.5% abv)
  • White Star (4.8% abv)
  • Captain Smith's Strong Ale (5.2% abv)[2]

All of these, bar the Mild and Steerage are available in bottles from the brewery, the brewery tap, and some supermarkets. They produce over 3 million pints every year.[3]


Titanic Brewery presently owns nine pubs in the North Staffordshire area - The Bull's Head in Burslem, The White Star in Stoke, The Greyhound in Newcastle-under-Lyme, The Royal Exchange in Stone, The Sun Inn in Stafford, The Roebuck in Leek, The Hollybush in Seighford, The Cheshire Cheese in Buxton and The Olde Kings Arms in Congleton.

The Titanic Brewery has won many awards, often awarded by CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale), from the 1990s to the present day.

The Titanic Brewery's bottled Stout beer's first award was Gold in the 1994 Guardian Bottled Beer of Britain, and more recently it won first place in the CAMRA West Midlands Beer of the Year 2009 (Stout Category). Titanic's Iceberg Beer won its first award in 2002, achieving Gold in the CAMRA Champion Beer of the West Midlands category, and again more recently achieved first place in the CAMRA West Midlands Beer of the Year (Speciality Category). A full list of the awards given to the beer can be found on their website.[5]
