Some History on this Brewery
The earliest reference I have encountered regarding this brewery is that of the Deakin family. By the late 1880's the business was being run by James Henry Deakin, son of the brewer Henry Deakin. The title of the Manchester Brewery Company Limited was given to a newly-registered firm in 1888 when it was created to acquire the business of James Henry Deakin. The firm were based at the Britannia Brewery in Brodie Street, Ardwick, Manchester.

The company got into difficulties in the early Edwardian period. In 1912 the business was acquired by Walker's & Homfray's Ltd.
