Congratulations to Hydes family member and brewery employee Tom Allkins, who has passed his Level 4 brewing apprenticeship with distinction.

Tom, who is the nephew of Adam Hyde, the longest serving employee and family member in the business as company secretary, has now been promoted from brewing apprentice to laboratory manager at Hydes brewery premises in Salford.

To celebrate Tom’s promotion and exciting journey within the family business, both he and Adam Hyde were invited to the newly opened Hydes premium dining pub, The Harry Beswick, in Heswall, on the Wirral. Tom had the honour of pulling the first official Hydes pint from the newly installed pumps, serving it to his uncle Adam.

In addition to Tom’s apprenticeship achievements, fellow brewery worker Tom Rostron has also passed his apprenticeship and has been appointed Hydes’ brewery manager.

New laboratory manager Tom Alkins, commented: “It feels great to be making my own way within the family business and to continue the brewing traditions started 160 years ago. It was an honour to attend the opening of our latest establishment and officially welcome the Harry Beswick into the Hydes pub family.”

Adam Hyde, company secretary and board member, who has spent over 40 years working for the family business, commented: “What better way to commemorate our 160th year of brewing excellence than launching a new addition to our extensive estate and officially welcoming the next generation of the family into the fold, preserving the rich history of the brewery and further strengthening our heritage for another generation.

“The family is very proud of Hydes’ distinguished heritage and reputation as a first rate employer which respects and values its employees. A strong focus on running the business with the traditional values that have guaranteed its survival since 1863 is still very much in play, along with the ability to evolve and adapt to a dynamic and ever-changing landscape.”
