Whenever you see an event about alcoholic beverages with the CAMRA stamp of approval, you know it is going to have some delicious booze. 

If you are attending the Manchester Beer & Cider Festival, you can expect to warm your wintry body with well over 85 traditional ciders and perries, 450 cask conditioned real ales and a wide variety of bottled craft beers. That is even before we mention the impressive collection of imports from around the world on offer. It is an understatement to say that there will be lots of beer and cider to choose from.

The event itself is set in one of the city’s most visually striking buildings, Manchester Central, a former rail station and it attracts 13,000 visitors. Be prepared to sample in measures ranging from thirds to full pints, and keep up – last year, the equivalent of over 60,000 pints were consumed.

Organisers have brought in eight street food traders to complement the 22 bars, making this the biggest beer festival in the North. With tutored tastings, meet the brewer events, traditional pub games, a beer debate and selected traders specialising in beer-related gifts, there’s plenty to do.

Whether you like a craft beer, imported Dutch blonde, strong Northern English ale or a fruity cider, you will find exactly what you are looking for and so much more at the Manchester Beer & Cider Festival.
