Joseph Holt

Beers

We have been brewing beer since 1849 and have used all our knowledge and experience to extend our range as tastes have changed.

However, a few things will never change, such as using the finest ingredients, sticking to our time honoured brewing traditions and always embracing the latest technology to create our quality beers.

But the biggest commitment is to brew the finest beers and sell them at a competitive price.

You will find our cask, keg, lager and selected bottles in all our pubs and at a variety of venues across Greater Manchester.

Seasonal beers

We know that today’s beer drinkers enjoy a variety of different tastes. We are confident our core range of cask, keg, lager and bottled beers deliver a truly extensive range.

However we do enjoy producing seasonal ales that reflect the time of year. Our seasonal ales each provide a distinctive taste to complement our permanent cask ales.

So why not pop in and enjoy a pint of something different.
