- Deborah Woodman
15th July 2024
Manchester and Salford, two cities whose heritage is intricately entwined, are noted for their industrial history, and this book looks at their thriving brewing industry, taking the reader on a journey of its development from the late eighteenth century to present day. Deborah Woodman looks at key brewers in the locality, including Boddingtons, Wilsons, Joseph Holt, Groves & Whitehall and Thelfalls Chesters.
This book tells the story of the decline of the brewing industry in the region during the twentieth century, including the much-publicised takeover of Boddingtons and the closure of Strangeways brewery, and the subsequent revival in the form of newly emerging micro-breweries.
