JW Lees is a family-run brewery in Middleton, Manchester. We’ve been brewing here since 1828, and have over 170 pubs across the North West of England and North Wales. JW Lees has 31 managed pubs, 142 tenanted pubs and over 500 free trade accounts.
Cask beer is at the heart of JW Lees and our most popular is JW Lees Bitter, which we’ve been brewing since 1828. We even have our own unique Grip Glass, a pint glass with grooves to fit your hand. Our newest cask ale is The Governor, an all-malt British beer we’re brewing with Marco Pierre White. Available on draught and in bottles, it has a rich, amber colour with a malty taste and fragrant hoppy finish.
