Brewer and pub operator Joseph Holt is to open a microbrewery at Manchester Airport’s new £1bn terminal with TRG Concessions.

The Bridgewater Exchange will serve Joseph Holt’s ales and lagers, alongside breakfast dishes, small bites and pub classics. The airport ale will be produced on-site in the microbrewery.

Richard Kershaw, chief Executive and fifth generation of the Joseph Holt family said: “We’re delighted to be opening a Joseph Holt pub in conjunction with TRG in Manchester Airport.

“We’re proud of the ales and lagers we produce and to go into such a development with a microbrewery on site will really show our passion for brewing beer.”

Nick Ayerst, managing director, TRG Concessions, added: “TRG Concessions are honoured and delighted to have been awarded seven fantastic locations within the most awe-inspiring new terminal at Manchester Airport.

“Our aim was to introduce an iconic range of local, innovative and truly unique brands to this incredible new development and offer Manchester Airports passengers the ultimate food and beverage experiences before and after their flights.”

The terminal two extension, due to open next year, will also house Barburrito, Seven Bro7thers microbrewery, and coffee shop Grindsmith.
