Hydes originated when brothers Alfred and Ralf Hyde acquired a small brewing concern in Manchester from their grandfather Thomas Shaw in 1863, beginning a brewing dynasty that would go on to mark its 160th anniversary this year. As Hydes’ business developed it was managed by a variety of family members from different generations, increasing success led to it outgrowing its premises several times. In 1899, with William and Annie Hyde in control, the business moved to its long-term home at the Queens Brewery site in Brooks Bar, Manchester. In 2012, after over 100 years, the company ended its tenure at the Queens Brewery and relocated to its existing site in Salford’s Media City, the Beer Studio.
This year we really want to celebrate success and to share this with our pubs and customers so to mark this 160th milestone, we have launched a specially brewed Anniversary Ale. It will be available across Hydes pubs this weekend for just £1.60 per pint! Plus a prize draw entry to win £160 in cash!
The North West has always been well represented by long-established successful independent family brewers. We are proud to be in that group and continue to provide great pubs, food and beers to our loyal customers throughout our North West heartland.
Join us this weekend to toast 160 years of Hydes brewery.
