Stalybridge brewery to relocate to expand production

A STALYBRIDGE craft brewery is set to embark on a new chapter as it relocates to Hyde.

Bridge Beers’ owners Dave Bridge and Glenn Hall announced the move via social media, marking significant expansion for the company.

The brewery, currently situated on Knowl Street, will soon make its home in the former Four Kings Brewery premises on Lodge Street, Newton.

“Just to confirm the worst kept secret in the history of brewing history. We have taken on the brewing kit and premises of ‘Four Kings Brewery,’” the owners shared on social media.

“Over the next few weeks, we’ll be transferring our production from our Stalybridge site to the Newton, Hyde premises.”

The relocation not only facilitates an expansion in production capacity but also grants Bridge Beers access to a bar and function space the owners are eager to develop further.

Since its inception in February 2016, Bridge Beers has kept the borough hydrated with its selection of ales, supplying approximately 20 venues across Tameside and beyond.

With customers as far-reaching as New Mills, Derbyshire, and Stockport, the brewery has become a staple in the local craft beer scene.

But what exactly goes into the brewing process that transforms hops, yeast, and water into the flavourful beverages cherished by patrons? A visit to the brewery back in 2023, as they prepared for their 100th ale, shed light on the meticulous craftsmanship behind each batch.

Despite the move, loyal customers need not worry. The Stalybridge bar – located at 55, Melbourne Street – will remain open.

Operating hours will continue as usual with doors open on Wednesday from noon until 6pm, Thursday from noon until 8pm, Friday from 1pm until 9pm, and Saturday from noon until 9pm.
