You've missed this event

The North's biggest celebration of beer and cider is back!

If an alcoholic event has the CAMRA stamp on it, you can be sure that you’re in for a certified treat of brilliant booze.

Visitors to the Beer & Cider Festival in January 2018 will be able to warm their wintry bones with over 350 cask conditioned real ales, 75 traditional local ciders and perries, and a vast collection of bottled craft beers, not to mention all the international imports on offer. In short, there is a lot of beer to choose from.

Set in the middle of the iconic National Cycling Centre, one of Manchester’s most striking buildings, the festival organisers are expecting big numbers, after last year’s event attracted over 10,000 punters (or PINTers, get it?). It was 2,500 more people than expected, and a reorder of over 4000 pints didn’t stop the festival from drying up by Saturday afternoon across all 16 bars. This year however, you can expect gallons and gallons of spare brew at the ready, so that there is no danger of a repeat!

Whatever your chosen tipple, there is certain to be something for you at the Manchester Beer and Cider Festival this year.
