What's On at The Red Lion


National Beer lovers Day

11:30AM - 11.00PM

In 1828 retired cotton manufacturer John Lees had a twinkle in his eye. Or maybe he’d had a bad pint and wanted to get things right. He bought some land at Middleton Junction and started making beer.
In 1876 John Lees grandson John William, took sole control of the Brewery and changed the name to JW Lees & Co. He didn’t just keep his nose stuck in a mash tun either, finding time to become Mayor of Middleton twice.

And now? Well JW Lees has been passed down the generations and we’re now up to the sixth generation. William, Simon, Michael and Christina Lees-Jones joined Richard and Christopher at JW Lees in the early 1990s.
