Robinsons Brewery, family brewers based in the heart of Stockport, celebrate an incredible 185 years of business on the 29th September 2023. Established in 1838, Robinsons has been serving communities with quality beers, pubs and inns for nearly two centuries. The brewery has remained in the Robinson family for six generations, making it one of the few family-run breweries with such a long history.

From its modest beginnings on Hillgate to becoming a local favourite across Manchester, Cumbria, North Wales and West Yorkshire, Robinsons have continued to grow as a business. Over the years, the brewery and pub company has adapted and evolved, staying true to its roots while embracing innovation and changes in customer behaviour. Today, it stands as a proud symbol of Stockport's brewing heritage.

"We're thrilled to reach this remarkable milestone," said Oliver and William Robinson, Joint Managing Directors. "It's a testament to the enduring love for our beers and pubs, and the dedication of our teams."

On 18th September, Robinsons hosted its first ever company-wide conference. Oliver and William commented: “It was a day that brought teams from all the areas of our business together for the first time providing a great opportunity to share the strengths and diversity of our 6 generation family business while setting out our future plans and ambitions.”

Life President, Mr Dennis Robinson, commented on Robinsons’ company conference: “It was very encouraging for me to hear such things about how everybody else is getting involved across the business, which is the aim that we had some while ago. So, seeing it coming into fruition is very good, because at the end of the day, the business is about people.”

Throughout its history, Robinsons has received numerous awards for the quality of its ales such as Old Tom and TROOPER, showcasing its dedication to brewing excellence.

Robinsons sends a huge thanks to the local community and all beer enthusiasts who have supported them throughout the years. Here's to another 185 years of brewing excellence.
