On the beer trail in Manchester

Manchester Beer Week

Beer on the menu across the city

Manchester’s only city-wide beer festival starts today, providing an unrivalled celebration of Britain’s favourite drink across 10 event-filled days until Sunday, July 2.

Now entering its second year, 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, with the opening weekend shining 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.

And although beer is the glue that holds the festival together, it also encompasses food, art, history and music, making it a major event on Manchester's cultural calendar.
