This spring you will be available to enjoy a pint of Cains beer at a brand-new impressive venue based within the walls where Robert Cain first brewed the famous ale back in 1858 at Cain’s Brewery Village based in the trendy Baltic Triangle.
The Company behind the much-anticipated return of Cains Brewery is Mikhail Hotels & Leisure Group, who have invested millions into some of Merseyside’s most striking venues and is also behind the long-awaited renovation of The Grand on Lord Street, Southport which will open this summer and will feature four high-end bars plus a Brasserie and a wedding/function suite. The group also boasts Liverpool’s largest Irish bar, Punch Tarmey’s and, one of Europe’s biggest gaming arcades, ArCains both also based at Cains Brewery Village plus favourite with real ale fans, Doctor Duncan’s based in Queens Square.
Andrew Mikhail, the man behind The Mikhail Group, said of this exciting new venture,
‘Cains beer is synonymous with Liverpool, I love the Cains brand. The beer they call ‘Liverpool in a pint’ has been missed by many since it disappeared from bars almost 10 years ago. I feel incredibly proud to be bringing this iconic brew back to life and I’m sure that there are many Real Ale fans looking forward to enjoying that first pint of Cains.’
Andrew continues, “Cains is a resilient brand just like Liverpool and we’re really excited to be bringing Cains Brewery back to life, albeit with a new direction that will bring national attention to Liverpool for all the right reasons,”.
The new venue, expected to create around 40 local jobs, will be spread across 3 floors and promises to offer the perfect synergy between the past and present of Cains being based within the original and oldest building within Cains Brewery where brewing originally started over 160 years ago.
Andrew Hayes, Cains’ General Manager, and Head Brewer said this week, ‘Watching the tanks being delivered this week makes it all so real. I, like so many others, can’t wait for the first taste of this famous Liverpool brew. The city has been missing a signature beer since the closure of Cains and I’m very excited to bring it back.’
When asked whether the Cains Raisin Beer would also be making a comeback, brewer Hayes stated, ‘The Raisin Beer was one of the best-loved beers Cains ever produced – and will be one of the first beers to come out of the Brewery when it returns this year. We are excited to bring the original recipe back to life for all to enjoy.’
Brewery Tours are set to be available once the venue opens its door this Spring. We will also see the brew available at other well-known and loved Mikhail Group venues throughout the North-West including Doctor Duncan’s, The Brewery Tap, and Punch Tarmey’s.
