A brand new festival dedicated to celebrating craft beer, soundtracked by Craig Charles, Daddy G (Massive Attack) DJ Set and Django Django DJ Set, is coming to Depot Mayfield this summer.

The team behind London Craft Beer Festival and Bigfoot Festival amongst others will be coming to Manchester to present the beer and music fuelled festival, across three sessions.

Hosting a stellar line-up of breweries, from household names to local heroes and new kids on the block, expect to discover, learn and explore the world of craft beer.

Each ticket allocates guests entry for a five-hour session on the Friday or Saturday to sample the mega line-up of brewers and enjoy live music from heavyweight headline acts.

The £49.50 ticket also includes all of your beers, a special festival beer glass and access to the festival’s pop-up kitchens.

From sour beers and IPAs to low ABV beers, Manchester Craft Beer Festival celebrates beer in all forms.

Representing Manchester, Manchester Union, Marble, Pomona Island, Track Brewing Co and the brand new Bundobust Brew Pub will be showcasing their creations.

International names from some of Europe’s most popular breweries include Norway’s Lervig, Denmark’s Mikkeller and Netherlands’ Fontaal and Kees – as well as a New York showcase including Grimm, Barrier, KCBC and Equilibrium breweries.

Brew York, Brixton, Northern Monk, Gipsy Hill, Signature, Full Circle, North, Salt, Stone & Wood, The Kernel, Verdant and Vocation are also confirmed for the festival’s line-up, with more to be announced.

“We’re ecstatic that we can go ahead with the launch of Manchester Craft Beer Festival this year, we’ve wanted to do something epic in the city for ages – it’s got such great breweries and a creative culture and buzz that is second to none,” said co-founder of We are Beer, Greg Wells.
