Drivers Jonas Deloitte and Jones Lang LaSalle have been instructed by Hydes Brewery to sell Queens Brewery in Moss Lane West, Manchester.
Hydes is relocating to a new site at Kansas Avenue, Salford, having acquired the site from Keystone Estates for an undisclosed sum.
Hydes was established in 1863 by Alfred and Ralph Hyde and is one of the few British regional breweries that is still owned and managed as a family business. The company has operated from the same site in Moss Side for more than 100 years.
Hannah Thorne, assistant director of Drivers Jonas Deloitte, added: "This is a fantastic site that presents developers with a plethora of opportunities. It is characterised by a Grade 2-listed building and extends to 2.62 acres. Subject to planning, it is suitable for a number of different uses."
Philip Moran, associate at law firm Cobbetts LLP, advising Hydes, added: "This is a major move for Hydes Brewery. The new Salford site will allow the company to reposition its brewing business and expand its cask beer range. It offers many benefits including easy access to Manchester city centre and the M602 motorway, serving as a major distribution hub to the region and wider UK transport network."
