Take the ten minute drive from Stoke on Trent’s City Centre to the Tollgate at Blurton and you could be in for a surprise. During the 36 years since the Tollgate first opened its doors as a squash club, a great deal of work has gone into developing a leisure and hotel complex that its owners justifiably claim as having a range of facilities that are unique in North Staffordshire. The individual attention clients receive from staff is a major benefit for members and hotel guests.

Our vision is to brew beer of the very best quality, equal to any in the world.

We believe in natural brewing, less is more.  Our beers are very very simple, we use our own mineral water, we use great quality malt and hops - the best we can find.  We have a brilliant brewery plant for quality and consistency.  Our beers are uncomplex, uncluttered recipes and rely on Joule's yeast for their character and our mineral water, our greatest prized asset [more information in the brewing section].  It will be no surprise then that we only brew three core beers, and a seasonal beer every 3 months - the best we can offer, the original Joule's Pale, a classic English Pale Ale, Slumbering Monk our premium silky copper beer, new age Blonde, inspired from the continental tradition, and the current seasonal, Double Hop, a golden pale ale.  We only brew with malt, no cheaper additives, no flavourings - full flower hops, no pellets.  Pure natural and simple - that is our guiding principle.  We also only brew cask ale, in our view bottled ale is never as good as real cask ale, its lacks the subtlety of flavour and texture, the body often stripped out by filtration and pasturation.  For this reason we don't offer any of our beers in bottle, just cask.

This simple approach extends to how we do business, we sell our beer direct to our permanent houses, so it only ever has one journey on our dray, only handled by our own people. We have developed a  strategic distribution partnership with a great, local, well established business, Tanners Wine Merchants, who we know very well, and have a great trading ethos which we share. The Tanners heartland also mirrors the Joule’s heartland, and they have an experienced sales force with an enormous amount of expertise in supporting and servicing their customers.

Because we don't bottle our beer, Joule's ales are just for the pub, it's no great hardship not to be dealing with big supermarket groups, we are backing the great Britsh pub - 100%

Energy Solutions

[energy solutions] Climate Energy Group are one of the UK’s leading providers of energy-saving systems.We specialise in helping organisations to reduce their carbon footprint and save money, by installing unique, tailored solutions in their workspaces and other premises.

What We Do...

Climate undertakes specialised examinations of buildings to assess each organisation’s energy usage, including the performance of HVAC and electrical assets. Using unique energy-saving techniques, Climate can then offer a tailored system of energy efficiency measures and upgrades. This includes a detailed breakdown of financial savings that could be achieved through installation of the new systems.

Energy Reduction Survey

A detailed survey of the current energy usage of each premises, including electric, heating, lighting and the day-to-day operation of the building. Detailed examination of how the operatives and the working systems of the premises are considered in detail at this stage.

Feasibility Study

The feasibility of the project is then considered in-depth with the client. This includes costs of installation of any new equipment, plus the possibility of upgrades to existing systems. Details of potential cost-savings that can be achieved through installation of the new system are discussed. By utilising our existing supply-chain we can offer excellent returns on investment for our clients and establish realistic payback periods.


Following the feasibility study, our managers will work with each client to deliver an installation plan that suits the needs of their business.  The work can be undertaken out of business hours to minimise any disruption to usual working practices.

Energy monitoring

Monitoring varies depending on whether the organisation we are working with has energy monitoring in place prior to installation of the new systems. For those without prior systems, Climate energy monitoring is installed 2-4 weeks before any other work commences.
