A Waterside Beer & Wine Festival With DJs And Tastings Is Coming To Manchester This Summer

It’s a kind of summer beer thing…

Following a successful waterside pop-up with Levenshulme faves Isca Wines, Common & Co has revealed that they’re next in line to take over the new, thriving Kampus complex, with month-long beer pop up ‘Summer Beer Thing’. Returning after a year off due to COVID-19, the beloved festival is set to be a celebration of all that is seasonal, regional, and interesting in the world of beer and beyond – with plenty of things to drink (and do!) over the next four weeks.

Taking over the Bungalow at Kampus from Friday 2nd July, Summer Beer Thing will be serving up the best beers from both local and national breweries, along with a selection of fantastic wines and even Nell’s very own ice cream sandwiches. Pizza lovers will know Nell’s as Common’s resident NYC pizzeria, where they serve up slices bigger than our heads in the busy Northern Quarter.

Hosting a number of events throughout the duration of the festival, guests can expect live DJs and pop-up beer tastings (with some extra special beers in-store), as well as eight rotating taps of the “finest and most sessionable” beers around, natural wines, cocktails, softs, and snacks, with support from Salt Beer Factory and Sipsmith Gin.

Guests will also be able to enjoy space by the waterside while sippin’ on their nice, cold beers on the warmer days, with tables available inside too on a walk-in basis only.

The event will mark a huge warm welcome to not only Common & Co, but Kampus’ incoming residents, with a number of new apartment blocks set to open in the new community over the next six months. Common & Co have become to first business to put down roots within the community, with The Cornerstone pub opening this August.
