There’s nothing quite like that sweet, sweet feeling of sinking a freshly pulled beer: perfectly chilled, straight from the barrel and glittering in the sun like liquid gold. Well, if that has got you daydreaming of summer pints, then the Manchester Craft Beer Festival might be right up your street. Better yet, all your beer is included in the ticket price!
Heading into town with an epic weekender of all things beer, the two-day festival will be beckoning in brewhounds with the promise of refreshing lagers, golden ciders, amber ales, fruit-fuelled sours and chocolatey stouts this July. This is a must for any craft beer fans looking to taste a wide range of hops from plenty of world class breweries.
Taking place over two days in July (Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd), the boozy festival will pop up at the historic Depot Mayfield – which has been recently redeveloped as an urban events space, attracting huge events such as The Warehouse Project as well as screening sports matches. And now, beer lovers will get the chance to enjoy the much loved venue as it’s filled with over 50 world-class breweries offering a taste of their fantastic craft beers.
In addition to a whole fleet of breweries to get familiar with – including Pomona Island, Manchester Union Brewery, Queer Brewing, Siren Craft Brew and more – guests will be treated to DJ sets yet to be announced. Of course, you’ll need something to balance out all that beer, which is why there will be a variety of the North West’s finest chefs, restaurants and popups on hand to help line your tums throughout the event.
Tickets are on sale now, and each includes access to the five-hour event and your own tasting glass to keep, which you can take around the event with you for refills. Plus, they come with all your beer included! You can pick up your tickets to the Manchester Craft Beer Festival here.
