Made in Liverpool
The Baltic Triangle hasn’t forgotten its long history of manufacturing. From beer brewed in the Baltic Triangle to freshly baked bread and handmade pottery, there are a plethora of Baltic Triangle businesses championing ‘Made in Liverpool’. Black Lodge Brewing offers something a little different, with its experimental and creative beers brewed in the heart of the Baltic Triangle. This small batch brewery was founded in 2015 and has collaborated with numerous festivals, breweries and brands. As well as hosting events, Black Lodge also have a tap room where their Liverpool beer can be enjoyed. H1780 Tap & Still also offers a unique drinks experience with a working brewery distillery, bar and eatery.
The Cains Brewery Village hosts a wide range of independent businesses and the new Red Brick Hangar has given a home to a number of cool and quirky independent businesses. From artists to crocheters to organic fruit and veg sellers, this warehouse-style project has been called Liverpool’s answer to Camden. For the young professionals who are choosing to live in the Baltic Triangle, the proximity of locally made, fresh and unique products is a huge draw.
It is not just drinkers who can benefit from the eclectic mix of Baltic Triangle spaces. Unit 51 is a gorgeous venue that holds regular art exhibitions and community events. It also has an excellent selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner options. The Baltic Bakehouse is another firm favourite with locals and visitors alike. Its quirky café and artisan bread, pastries and cake make for a perfect lunch break for the Baltic Triangle’s busy workforce. Siren is the ideal place for relaxed lunches and freshly made classics. This flexible space on James Street is a great venue that can be hired.
Shopping local and supporting small businesses is a cause that is close to the heart of many millennials, and the Baltic Triangle provides the ideal place to express these values.
