Get beer done!

Incredible inventory from Manchester Beer and Cider Festival 

Drinkers are promised a celebration of our national drinks as the North’s biggest beer and cider festival rolls into Manchester Central next week. And to tease tastebuds, organisers have announced their beer lists packed with the most extensive selection of real ales, modern keg and the best from the international scene.

Now in its seventh year, Manchester Beer and Cider festival has an outstanding menu of the best brewers and producers can muster. This year, 25 bars will serve more than 750 different examples sure to appeal to lovers of traditional British ales, those seeking the cutting edge of modern brewing and fans of foreign beer styles. With ciders, perrys, fruit wines, mead and a gin bar, there’s sure to be a drink for every taste.

As you would expect from an event organised by the nine Greater Manchester branches of the Campaign For Real Ale (CAMRA), the focus is on cask-conditioned beers with almost 400 to choose from.
