The Strangeways Brewery was founded by two grain merchants, Thomas Caister and Thomas Fry in the late 18th century. The last family chairman Ewart Boddington sold the company to Whitbread in 1989. Whitbread were taken over by InBev in 2000 who ended production at the brewery in 2005. The brewery was used as a venue for a series of club nights, known as The Warehouse Project, until 31 December 2006.
