Thanks for the welcome, nice to be here.

The brewery closed down in 2005 and has been demolished. All that's left is a chimney in a car park. The brewery was famous for Boddingtons Bitter. They ran a huge advert campaign on TV a few years back. Tried the bitter once but didn't like it too much! When I drink beer it is usually from local breweries but I much prefer absinthe and single malt whisky!

Why do you ask? Have you some affinity with the brewery?

They call it HM Prison Manchester now. I think Strangeways was much better!
