Manchester-based brewer Marble Beers has today announced the sale of its Beerhouse in Chorlton for an undisclosed sum (Friday 27 July).

The Marble Beerhouse, which has been acquired by the Beer House, also in Chorlton, had been an integral part of the local beer and pub community, the brewery said.

Marble Beers director Jan Rogers added: “While we are sad to see our time in Chorlton come to an end, we are happy to be able to introduce Alex Price and his team to the local beer community in their new venture, and we are excited for the future.”

Marble said the move is part of a change in portfolio for the company as it modernises its production facility in line with the evolving British and world brewing scene.

Smooth transition

Marble Beers will be working with the new owners of the site, the Beer House, to ensure a smooth transition over the coming months, it said.

It added that it will be supporting the work of Alex Price of the Beer House and his team with a range of Marble Brewery’s core and speciality beers, in draught and small-pack formats.

The sale leaves Marble with two other pubs in Manchester – the Marble Arch Inn in Rochdale Road, and 57 Thomas Street in the city’s Northern Quarter.

Local community

Alex Price of the Beer House said: “We are excited to continue promoting everything that makes the Marble Beerhouse such a great place to be, focusing on great hospitality, a fantastic selection of beers, and being an inclusive and welcoming part of the local community.”

The lease for the property had been up for sale with Christie & Co for £175,000.

Meanwhile, Marble Brewery events and communications manager Hannah Davidson recently told delegates at The Morning Advertiser​’s Beer Summit that the role of packaged beer is to support draught product and introduce new drinkers to your beer.

She added: “Packaging isn’t the end of draught beer unless you are doing draught beer wrong. We want to increase the experience of coming to the pub, and that involves bringing in different people who want to discover beer.”
