Aspire ( Business and Company Sales Specialists ) are delighted to offer for sale this award-winning Brewery based in
Wigan. The Brewery is based in impressive leasehold premises close to the town centre yet easily accessible to the M6 motorway and with comfortable commuting distance to all major North West conurbations. The premises have a wide frontage and ample car parking facilities.

The Brewery has been established since 2007 and has built up an enviable national reputation for its beers. Originally based in Standish the Brewery relocated in 2017 to spacious leasehold premises close to the town centre of Wigan. This allowed the Brewery to structure all the equipment and processes to allow for significant future increases in production if required. The Brewery has an impressive 12 Barrel Plant, brewing an extensive collection of real ales. The business has an enviable client list and supplies over 100 establishments across the North West. In addition, it supplies a well-known supermarket chain with bottled beers and also carries out a small amount of contract brewing.

Currently the Brewery has an annual turnover of £270,000 achieving a 69% gross profit. There remains significant potential to increase this further as there is the internal capacity to double brewing production or introduce the supply of keg and botted products if desired. This is a particularly attractive purchase as there is a loyal and highly experienced team of staff in place, allowing the whole operation to be operated under management if desired. There has been significant thought and investment into the design and build of the brewing equipment and internal processes, providing an ideal platform from which to increase production further. The Brewery has only been brought to market due to the owners wish to retire.
