Manchester is home to a growing number of breweries, and more and more are choosing to open their doors to allow punters to drink beer right from the source. If I find myself in Manchester city centre on a Saturday, I generally end up in a brewery. As a regular brew tap visitor, I thought I’d pull together a small guide to what you can expect from each Manchester brewery tap, their locations and their opening hours.
Five Manchester breweries will be making the most of the bank holiday weekend by hosting brew tap events across the city.
Beer Nouveau will be hosting a special ‘Beer from the Wood’ weekend at 75 Temperance Street. They’ll be showcasing six of their beers conditioned in and served from traditional wooden casks. Local cider, wine, soft drinks and snacks will also be on offer. They’ll be open 12-9pm on Friday March 25, Saturday March 26 and Sunday March 27.
Blackjack Brewery will host their first brew tap of 2016 over the weekend, opening their doors at 35 Gould Street on Friday March 25 6-10pm, Saturday March 26 12-11pm and Sunday March 27 12-6pm. They’ll have 12 keg lines and four cask beers available as well as cider, wine and spirits. Grub will be providing the food line-up.
Chorlton Brewing Co will also be opening their doors for the first time in 2016 on Saturday March 26. They’ll be serving three of their sour beers direct from the tank at 69 North Western Street. They’ll be open 1-7pm.
Finally, Track and Squawk have again teamed up for another event at Track Brewery on 5 Sheffield Street. A new beer will be launched, and there will also be food from Mac Daddies at their event which takes place from 1pm (til late) on Saturday March 26.
A beer eggstravaganza (…sorry)!
