Hydes, Made of Manchester - Occassional Beer Range

Occasional Beers

This range of products brings back classic beers from our rich heritage such as Manchester’s Finest and Jekyll’s Gold, with a modern twist on the pump clip designs, to ensure we offer heritage ales with a contemporary image to ensure real stand out in the bar area.

We also brew beers for special occasions such as Tokyo Try for the 2019 Rugby Union World Cup which is being held in Japan. We like authenticity in our beers so we are using traditional Japanese ingredients such as rice and the famous Sorachi Ace Hop which originates from Japan.

There is a beer for every taste in this range so please give the beers a try!
