The organisers of the Manchester Beer and Cider Festival 2015 have released details of the range of bars and brewers who will be taking part in next year’s ale, beer and cider extravaganza.
The festival is being organised and run by volunteers from the Greater Manchester branches of CAMRA and will be held at Manchester Velodrome from the 21st – 24th January. Last year’s festival was an enormous success – so much so that it ran out of beer on the Saturday – and this year’s promises to be bigger and better. Feedback from last year’s attendees has resulted in a number of planned improvements to the setup and management of the venue, including bars on the main concourse, for anyone who isn’t too keen on taking the stairs to the central bar area.
Participating breweries running their own bars include Manchester-area stalwarts Marble Beers, Wilson Potter, Outstanding Beers, Brightside Brewery and Blackjack Beers. They’ll be joined by Cheshire-based Offbeat Brewery and Bollington Brewery, Cumbrians Hawksheak Brewery and Yorkshire’s Bridestones Brewery and Ilkley Brewery.
