Joseph Holt Brewery (Greater Manchester)

Joseph Hole Brewery are marking their 170th anniversary with the release of six new, specially brewed cask ales which tell the story of Joseph Holt from their 1849 origins to the present day.

The six new brews, making up the 170 Cask Ale Programme, have been created to celebrate the six generations of family who’ve led Joseph Holt from the beginning.

In pubs where the ale is served, customers can get more information about the story behind each beer by scanning a barcode at the pump with their smart phones.

Codenamed G1 to G6, each cask ale is only available for two months before the story moves on to the next generation.

The current one available is G2, known as the Mayor – a premium cask lager with a light, straw colour and floral smell.  It’s brewed with Styrian Goldings and choice lager malt to give a crisp and refreshing taste at 4.6% ABV. It is available until the end of September from participating pubs.
