    Default Boddington's Brewery

    I've just been re-doing a few pages on my website, including the one for Boddington's Brewery. Apparently demolition work has started now, and the future of the chimney is in doubt. A big shame really as it's quite iconic.

    Anyway, these pictures are just over a year old, but were taken soon after the brewery closed. More here.

    No - security there could be easily seen from in the building. Plus when we were in there a van pulled up inside the site, so we knew there were guards about. If you get caught with just one small thing, like a beer mat, you can be done for theft. Too big a risk I'm afraid! Used to take hundreds from pubs though, back when me and my brother used to collect them...

    It would be a shame if something as iconic as that chimney was demolished

    The Cains one seems to be going strong. The brewery tour is well worth it if you get a chance...

    I've noticed the demise of Boddies each time I go to the M.E.N., even their little nearby pub closed down which was handy for the arena.

    Done it twice, and I breathe in the fumes every day when I cycle past it coming home from work

    The 2nd time I went there, one of my mates went along though he's a teetotaller so he gave me his free drinks vouchers at the end of it

    I thought it was common knowledge? Boddington's was always brewed in Manchester.

    Should everything to do with Manchester be specifically marked to say so? Is there a problem with it being in Manchester? Without manufacturing towns like Manchester, Leeds and Huddersfield there would never have been the rapid expansion here in Liverpool.

    I was kidding really since were supposed to have a rivalry with Manchester.

    I like the architecture of the building looking at yo pics anyway.
