We have a webshop – M41beerwagon.tk – where you can browse our beers, cider, growler fills, wine and spirits.
Under the latest lockdown laws we are NOT allowed to offer collections or shop sales from our front door.
Delivery is free of charge if you live locally and spend a certain amount. Full terms can be found on our M41 Beer Wagon webshop.
The beer wagon will be delivering on Friday & Saturday afternoons ONLY in January and February. Order before 3pm on Friday or Saturday for same-day M41 delivery. If you aren’t going to be in, you can add special instructions to your order. Webshop deliveries 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 when we’re dropping off.
All of these arrangements are temporary and tend to 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!

TIERS EXPLAINED IN BRIEF:
Tier 3 = all pubs and bars closed
Tier 2 = pubs can open if they serve food (we can’t, so The Schooner would still be closed)
Tier 1 = pubs can open at reduced capacity but must provide table service. Customers must provide contact info and wear masks when away from their table. Groups of up to 6 people from multiple households can sit together indoors. 10pm curfew.
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.
