1Ramsbottom Chocolate Festival
2PLY Beavertown Brewery
A bustling bar and pizza hangout with a mirror tiled, wood fired oven, PLY is the place to go for killer eats and craft beer. This Saturday it plays host to the exclusive Manchester launch of Beavertown Brewery’s brand new seasonal beer, Bloody ‘Ell. It’s the only venue in Manchester where you can taste this exclusive good stuff and if you’re a lover of beer, it’s your perfect excuse to sample a little more than you usually would. Bloody ‘Ell is a spring seasonal liquid, brewed for only a month and a half every year due to the availability of organic Sicilian blood oranges. It’s the perfect craft beer to enjoy on a crisp spring Saturday afternoon. Wood fired pizza optional but recommended. Free.
