manchester craft beer festival - depot mayfield

Returning to Manchester for its fourth year, Manchester Craft Beer Festival is set to bring its elite beer discovery experience back bigger and better, with the addition of a complimentary trade exclusive session, expert-led talks, tastings and tours with the likes of Channel 4’s Mark Dredge and live Euros screenings.

The festival dedicated to celebrating craft beer in all its glory will return with four sessions running across the 5th and 6th July, at Depot Mayfield. Brought to you by the experts who do beer festivals best, We Are Beer has spent the past decade running the biggest, boldest and best beer experiences across the country, welcoming over 40,000 guests across London, Bristol and Manchester.

Discovering, learning and celebrating beer is at the heart of the festival, and Manchester Craft Beer Festival’s mission is to bring together the best breweries and most dynamic brands in beer from across the world to the doorstep of those who appreciate good beer. With over 65+ breweries from Manchester, the rest of the UK and the world lined up, and 500+ brews to taste, there’s something for every palate.

Pioneers of the ‘all in’ sampling, the festival utilises this to encourage discovery and offer a good value experience. Standard entry tickets are priced at £57, and a group offer saves you £5 per ticket when you buy 4 together, reducing the cost to £52. The ticket includes all of your beer – so there’s no limit on the tipples you try – a special festival beer glass and access to the festival’s talks, tastings, tours, Food Block Party and live music!

Enlisted from Manchester’s vibrant beer community are the likes of Cloudwater, Track, Marble, Northern Monk, Bundobust, Sureshot and Seven Brothers. These will sit alongside the very best in UK craft – Deya, Verdant, Siren, North Brewing and many more. Incredible heritage breweries like Timothy Taylor’s, Chouffe and Timmermans will also feature, alongside international breweries from the US, Greece, Spain and Australia. Pimentae Margs, Whiskey, Rum, Cider makers are also on the line-up so guests can switch up on the beer too.

A portion of the festival’s floor will be taken up by a Food Block Party presenting global flavours, food demonstrations and DJs. London’s favourite ramen joint Bone Daddies will be making their Manchester debut, sitting alongside our city’s very own iconic burger providers, Almost Famous. Bundobust will be serving their incredible vegetarian Indian street food, MorMor will bring their Middle Eastern, North African and Mediterranean inspired street food plus Voodoo Rays will return with their NY slices.

New additions to the festival include talks, tastings and tours with Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch beer expert Mark Dredge and Craft Beer Channel’s Jonny Garrett. Plus a brand new trade session where industry can register for the Friday afternoon session for free, as part of the festival’s commitment to supporting Manchester and North’s incredible hospitality scene. There will also be a live screening of ‘it’s coming home’ Euros, making the festival the best place to cheer on England with hundreds of beers to pair with Jude Bellingham’s goals?

The cavernous space holds a stage which will be a dedicated acoustic music stage for the duration of the festival, to be graced by some incredible musicians. There will also be a line-up of DJs spinning throughout, yet to be revealed.
