Where We Call Home
Our Brewery, at the bottom of Cheetham Hill Road, Manchester has been home to Joseph Holt since 1860. Over the years, it has evolved and grown to become the modern Brewery it is today. Still being housed at the original Brewery means we never lose sight of what’s important and we have remained faithful to the brewing traditions established by Joseph Holt back in the 1840s.Read Our Story

Established Since 1849
Our iconic brewery was first established in central Manchester by Joseph Holt in 1849, just as the city was booming its way through the Industrial Revolution. After a successful start at two smaller breweries, Joseph Holt, the son of a weaver, and his ever-supportive wife moved their fledging brewery to Empire Street in 1860, the very same spot where we stand and brew today.Where Our Story Begins
