The Robinsons family have been brewing beer at the Unicorn brewery in the heart of Stockport since September 29, 1838.

Receive 50% off brewery tours throughout Manchester Beer Week to learn more about the story of William Robinson, a cotton weaver of modest means, who bought a small pub called the Unicorn Inn on Lower Hillgate.

Little did William know when he bought the sawdust-and-spittoon alehouse all those years ago that it would mushroom into a multi-million-pound company owning over 300 pubs across Cheshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire, Cumbria and Wales.

The Robinsons Visitors Centre allows visitors to marvel at the magic of the brewing process, new and original brewing equipment in the brew house, the Shire horses (almost as famous as the brewery itself), and some real vintage gems showcasing just how things have changed since 1838.
