Manchester’s only city-wide beer festival returns this summer, providing an unrivalled celebration of the nation’s favourite drink across 10 event-filled days.
Now entering its second year, Manchester Beer Week runs from Friday, June 23 to Sunday, July 2, and has secured the backing of the Co-op, which has agreed to become headline sponsor. Co-op will also play a role in creation of the festival’s official beer, which will then be made available in selected stores.
Manchester Beer Week’s first outing was a huge success, showcasing the best of beer through 94 events at 72 venues across Greater Manchester, including pubs, bars, breweries, restaurants and retailers.
And this year’s festival promises to be even better. The opening weekend will shine a light on independent producers with a brewery expo that will see many of the city centre brewers throw open their doors to the public for tours, tastings and talks.
Following on from this, Manchester Beer Week organisers will help to curate a series of unique events, designed to provide interesting beer-related experiences for experts and newcomers alike
