You are invited to Sadler’s Yard this Summer at the closing of Manchester Beer Week for the Pilcrow’s Summer Beer Thing, a three-day celebration of the best beers that the North has to offer.
Makers of Independent Manchester Beer Convention, Port Street Beer House, Cloudwater Brew Co and The Pilcrow
combine to deliver the UK’s newest outdoor style-focused beer festival. Pilcrow’s Summer Beer Thing will present examples of the very best beer styles from the North West’s (and beyond) bristling brewery scene. Expect to find SEVENTY beers pouring at any one session with a whopping TWO HUNDRED beers lined up for over the duration.
The Pilcrow, one of Manchester’s leading craft beer pubs, will be the nerve centre of Summer Beer Thing with the expansive doorstep of Sadler's Yard acting as a sprawling showcase of cherry picked craft beers and street food. Beers will be grouped together in style categories, with bars focused on pouring the best modern examples of pale ales, IPAs, fruit, sour beers and much more.
Pilcrow’s Summer Beer Thing will promote freshness and perfect Summer pairings, showcasing the leading breweries of Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, and surrounding Northern towns ~ with some choice smatterings from further afield. Highlighting the provenance of what’s going on in your own back yard...in Sadler’s Yard.
Expect DJs, informal talks, tastings and workshops alongside the best beers and best food you’re likely to enjoy outdoors this Summer. The eleven-hour day-into-night sessions encourage a more relaxed approach to a beer festival; Summer Beer Thing is very much to be taken at your own pace. Should you need to carry on over the finish line, retreat inside to the cosy confines of The Pilcrow where you’ll find yet more beers pouring until 1am.
Make Sadler’s Yard your playground this Friday 30th June – Sunday 2nd July 2017. It’s a Summer Beer Thing!
