BrewDog Manchester, 35 Peter Street, Manchester, M2 5BG – Visit Now
Not just for craft beer nerds, the Manchester outpost of this Scottish brewpub offers an unpretentious barbecue menu alongside its exhaustive selection of ale and beer. Try the Smack My Brewed Up! pale ale from Danish gypsy brewer Mikkeller or BrewDog’s own Dead Pony Club, the “rock ‘n’ roll session ale”. Those less fluent in beer shouldn’t feel ashamed with sticking to the food. The long cooked pork ribs and smoky mac ‘n’ cheese are just as worthy of anorak-ish adoration.
