Tickets on sale for Manchester Beer & Cider Festival

Manchester may have everything but a
beach - but drinkers can anticipate sniffing sea air next January. They are
invited to explore from coast to coast as tickets go on sale for the North's
biggest celebration of beer and cider.

Now in its seventh year, CAMRA's
Manchester Beer and Cider Festival features beers from the UK and further
afield. For the return to Manchester Central from Thursday 23rd to Saturday
25th January 2020, organisers will be shipping in beers from across the North.
There'll be no need for maps with the huge new Coast To Coast bar showcasing
ales from Merseyside to Humberside via Lancashire, Manchester and Yorkshire.
