Brightside Brewing Co


The brewery was established in 2011 by former baker and husband and wife team Neil and Maxine Friedrich, alongside son and daughter Lance and Carley.

They brewed their first beer on home brew kit back in 2009. At the time the country was in recession and things weren't looking good. The team always looked on the brightside...get it, the clues in the name.



A year later they designed and built their first 'commercial' equipment in the back of their bakery.

From here they moved into their purpose-built brewery and yes, they built this with their own hands too. These days they are established name in Manchester, with a reputation for quality beer.

At Whitebox we are happy to put our football rivalries aside for a minute, as they are a great bunch who make gorgeous beer!
