Summer Beer Thing 2018

Ian Jones, Food and Drink Editor

Summer Beer Thing 2018 at The Pilcrow, Manchester, 29 June–1 July 2018, from £6.00 - Visit now

You are invited to Sadler’s Yard this June at the opening of Manchester Beer Week for the Summer Beer Thing 2, a three-day Summer celebration of the best beers that the North has to offer.

The makers of Indy Man Beer Con, Port Street Beer House, Cloudwater and The Pilcrow join forces for the second year running for the ever-popular Summer Beer Thing. Here’s where you’ll find examples of the very best beer styles from the North West’s – and beyond – bustling brewery scene. Expect to find over sixty beers pouring at any one session with at least two hundred (!) lined up for the entire event.

The Pilcrow will be the nerve centre, with the expansive doorstep of Sadler’s Yard housing a marquee of cherry-picked craft beers, gin, prosecco and street food. Beers are grouped together in style categories, with bars focused on pouring the best pale ales, IPAs, fruit, sour beers and much more.

The emphasis will be on freshness and perfect Summer pairings. A showcase of what’s happening in your own backyard… in Sadler’s Yard.

With food from Honest Crust pizza, Common Kitchen (burgers from NQ mainstay, Common), Vaso Kitchen, and Shoot The Bull, Summer Beer Thing will be a fantastic showcase of the finest food and drink in the land. Don’t miss it.
