For once, this brewery was not founded by hobby brewer friends. It was founded by bar founders and real brewers. Pomona Island founders Nick and Ryan ran the Gas Lamp Bar in Manchester before joining the brewery, Gaz was a brewer at Marble Brewery and James was a brewer at Tempest Brewery. It was clear that this combination would make a great and successful brewery in 2017. Since then, Salford, near Manchester in the north of England, has been brewing a lot of craft beer. The range of beers reaches from Sour Ale to Porter. But especially the hoppy beers, like IPA and Pale Ale, are the brewers' favourite and Pomona Island is also known for these creations.
