Reports are surfacing that another well-known cask and craft beer outlet could be coming to Manchester’s Northern Quarter next year. As posted to the Fount of All Beery Knowledge (a.k.a. the ScoopGen Yahoo! Group) by Chris Waldken:
Following discussion on some of the local CAMRA boards about the Piccadilly Tap, Graham Donning (organiser of MBCF at the Velodrome) has added some more info as follows.
“Whilst the Tap is an initiative of Jamie Hawksworth (Pivovar) and his business partner, it is not the full story.
Jamie is opening up an old pub in Ancoats – the Edinburgh Castle, Blossom Street – with £0.5m set aside for the interior refurb and as the deal has been done Jamie is now happy for people to know. Work starts in February with an April opening expected.”
Bearing in mind what Pivovar do, it’s likely to be yet another place to visit in N/4 – about 3 minutes from the Port St Beer House.
Details of the location and current, distinctly dilapidated state of the pub can be seen on CAMRA’s WhatPub directory.
More info will be posted as and when it becomes clear.
