Joseph Holt


You cannot buy or fabricate history. It's something you either have or you don't.

But when you've been established for over 160 years, it can be easy to take your heritage for granted.

We are lucky that we have been brewing at the same Brewery since 1860, so everyday we are reminded of the values and beliefs that drove a man to set up a Brewery in central Manchester.

This experience, passion and drive, influences everything we do. We like to think that if Joseph was about today, he would be pleased with the progress and proud that his stamp is still very much on the Brewery.

We are incredibly proud of our rich history as an independent family brewer based in Manchester.
