Former Molson Coors brewery sold to property developer

13 10 20 Former Molson Coors brewery sold to property developer hero

The former Molson Coors South Brewery site in Burton-on-Trent has been sold by Colliers International to Day-Dako Developments Limited.


The South Brewery was built in 1864 and was previously connected to the company’s North Brewery site across Station Street by an overhead bridge. The two and four storey buildings last produced a brew in December 2017 and, following a £100million investment over the last decade, Molson Coors transferred all brewing activity to its North Brewery the following year.

The 5.77-acre site includes two Grade-II listed buildings and is situated in a dedicated regeneration area.

Nick Hammond, director at Colliers International, said: “This site attracted a lot of attention from buyers and there was stiff competition to secure the sale. We’re pleased to have been able to assist Molson Coors to dispose of this asset in a timely manner and look forward to seeing how the land is developed in the future.”

Habib Nawaz, development manager from Day-Dako Developments, said: “This has been an ideal opportunity to secure a well-positioned site, which can be utilised for a wide range of activities going forward. We’re looking forward to working with the local authorities to find a suitable solution for the future which will meet the needs of Burton’s residents.”

Kate Macnamara, Corporate Affairs Director for Molson Coors in Western Europe added: “We’re proud to operate what continues to be Britain’s biggest brewery in Burton and remain committed to our long-term brewing future in the area. We’re pleased that a new owner has been found for this site and look forward to seeing it play a new and exciting role in our Burton community.”
