Bringing an emphasis on high quality ingredients, hop forward thinking and an idea to create beer that people want to drink and talk about.

Brewing up a storm since 1997, Marble Brewery is a microbrewery based in the heart of Manchester, UK. We specialise in innovative cask, keg, can and bottled beer, as well as revitalising historic British styles. At the helm is Head Brewer, Joe Ince, who is leading the brewery's new range of hop forward beers, barrel ageing programme, and exciting new events. The brewery was originally housed in the rear of The Marble Arch Inn, and comprised of a four-and-a-half-barrel plant installed by Brendan Dobbin. The brewhouse was situated behind glass observation windows, where curious drinkers could view their beer being created. The fermenters and conditioning tanks were situated in the cellar below. Due to increased production, the brewery expanded in 2009 to twelve-barrel capacity, seeing production up sticks and move to a railway arch a short distance away and creating Manchesters first railway arch brewery. With no current plans to brew above 5000hl per year, we spread our production over seven fermenters, four bright beer tanks, one conditioning tank and a small but beautifully formed barrel aging program. As a small brewery with limited expansion we are proud to have sent staff onto; Blackjack Brewery, Buxton Brewery, Cloudwater, Dans Brewery, Legitimate Industries, Magic Rock, and Thornbridge. Former employee Rob Hamilton later purchased our original kit to found neighbouring Blackjack Brewery. As well as Rob, we are proud to have Marble alumni spread across the great and good of British brewing, including; James Campbell (Head Brewer, Cloudwater Brew Co), Dominic Driscoll (Production Manager, Thornbridge Brewery), Colin Stronge (Head Of Production, Northern Monk Brew Co), Matthew Howgate (Head Brewer, Legitimate Industries) and Dan W De Bechevel (Founder and Head Brewer, Wander Beyond Brewing).
All of our beers are vegetarian; we use no isinglass (a fish product) to clear our beers as our own in-house yeast drops naturally bright. We crop the yeast from each brew and use it in the next batch. Whilst we have been a predominantly cask-led brewery, we also package our beers in keg, bottle and can. We believe that different styles of beer are suited to different service styles, and we like to offer people the choice where we can. Our range of beers encompasses both modern interpretations of more traditional styles and more contemporary hop-forward beers; given our relatively small capacity and our focus on flavour and quality, everything we produce could be considered craft beer.
