Promotional Feature

There are more than 600 beers to try - all included in the ticket price

Manchester Craft Beer Festival, Friday 5 July and Saturday 6 July 2024

Back for its fourth year, Manchester Craft Beer Festival returns with more world-class breweries, over 600 craft beers, top-tier food, beer talks, live bands and DJs are just some of the reasons to join 8000 other hop-heads and get excited about Manchester Craft Beer Festival.

What’s more, all your beer is included in the price of your ticket. 

Sample new stuff from your favourite producers or try beer styles including IPAs, lagers, sours and stouts.. You’re not paying for it so experiment and go wild. You could find something new to love.

After all, the UK’s craft beer specialists will be gathered en masse at Depot Mayfield, passionately serving up session IPAs, pilsners, hoppy golden beers and more, joined by some of the craft worlds’ big names from Europe and America.

Grab your souvenir festival glass and get tasting beers from local legends like Cloudwater, Track, Sureshot, Seven Bro7hers, Bundobust and Manchester Union. 

Some of Confidentials’ recommended national hop magicians are there too including the lovely Verdant from Cornwall, Cheltenham’s DEYA, Tiny Rebel from South Wales and those spot-on sours from Edinburgh’s Vault City - their pear and elderflower session sour is the taste of summer.

Don’t miss Belgian beers from Chouffe and Duvel who’ve been crafting fantastic beers long before it was cool to put them in colourful cans. Thanks to Beers of America and Hop The Pond you can also discover the American craft scene with 12 US breweries represented including the Appalachian Mountain Brewery and Columbia Craft.

If you fancy a break from all that beer, artisan producers will be serving up cocktails, whiskies, wine and cider with free samples available and longer serves for an additional cost.

A beer festival session is hungry work so it’s a good job Voodoo Ray’s will be slinging the pizzas, Almost Famous are on hand to muster up some of the biggest burgers you've ever seen, Bundobust will be cooking up a meat-free Indian street food storm and Bone Daddies will be serving some of the most slurpable bowls of ramen you can find. Proper quality food to go with proper quality beer, not some four-pack of Foster’s and a dodgy burger.

There's live bands, DJ sets bringing all festival vibes, and even beer talks and walking tours from author and Craft Beer Channel host, Jonny Garret, as well as author and regular beer expert on Sunday Brunch, Mark Dredge.

Let’s face it. There’s nothing better you could be doing than drinking beer at Depot Mayfield on Friday 5 July and Saturday 6 July. And if you think the Euros might get in the way of a date with craft beer, don’t worry, because they'll be showing them.

Tickets cost from £40 and include entry, all your beer and entertainment - plus your souvenir glass.
