TEMPORARY HOURS & BUSINESS OPERATIONS
‘Click and collect’ and local beer wagon deliveries throughout ‘Covember’
Most importantly, we need all orders in advance. You can either collect from outside our door or ask for delivery. There’s no entry to the premises.
We have a webshop where you can browse all of our beers, cider, draught pours, wine and spirits. New stock will be added weekly, including Christmas gifts and our famous advent calendars.
Either collect your order from our doorstep during business hours, or request free delivery if you live locally and spend a certain amount. Full terms can be found on our M41 Beer Wagon webshop.
The beer wagon will start rolling midday to take advantage of daylight. Order before 12 noon for same-day delivery. If you aren’t going to be in, you can add special instructions to your order. Webshop delivery orders need to be paid for in advance (we’ll send a secure payment link to your phone) and we’ll need to see ID if you don’t pass our Challenge 21 criteria.
We’re happy to fill any standard growler (we’re expecting more of our own soon). We use sterile PVC tubing to pour from our taps. Cask ales are also available in 5L bagged boxes, these will be announced on Weds and pouring Thurs-Sat.
All of these arrangements are temporary and tend change frequently so please watch for updates on Facebook, Twitter and here on our website.
We really appreciate the support Urmston has given us over the past six years, thank you!

Welcome to the Prairie Schooner Taphouse, an independent bar and off-licence in Urmston. We’re named after the wagons covered in sailcloth which crossed the American West in pioneer days.
We specialise in real ale from local brewers on our four hand pumps as well as eight craft kegs. We also have a selection of real cider, fine wine, fizz, single malt whisky, small-batch gin, vodka and rum plus old-fashioned soft drinks which are sourced from local independent producers as much as possible.
We have a large selection of American, Continental and local beers in our fridges to take away, or you can take a relaxing tipple in our drinking parlour free from loud music and sports TV. See what’s on tap on Twitter or download the RealAleFinder app for your phone.
Find our calendar of events on Facebook for details about our weekly quiz, tutored tastings, live music nights, DJ sessions and Bring Your Own Vinyl. NB: ALL EVENTS AT THE BAR ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
