We expect to have in excess of 90 different cask conditioned craft ales available over the festival.

Carefully selected by our beer orderer, we aim to have something to suit every taste – from fresh golden ales to rich and complex porters.

We will be hosting the Golden Ales round of CAMRA’s Champion Beer Of Britain competition for the North West Region so you can expect a good selection of golden ales – perfect for summer.  We’ll also have IPAs, Milds, Bitters, Stouts, Porters and speciality styles ranging from refreshing wheat beers to spicy gingers.

Some old favourites will return to take their place on the bar along with some of the newest and most exciting new brewers on the scene.

Manchester has seen an unprecedented growth in the number of new breweries in recent years, so we will be celebrating this with out dedicated Manchester bar which will feature beers from Greater Manchester based breweries only.

Our second bar will feature many great beers from outside of Manchester – Cheshire, Cumbria, Yorkshire, Merseyside and many more.

The full list of beers will be published in June, but for now, here are just some of the breweries who will feature:
