Our Friends From The North
Manchester Event 7-Pack
For our next virtual taproom event, we're going to be proving that it definitely isn't grim oop north.
One of the small positives to come out of the pandemic has been the sense of community that has developed around our home city, and it's been heartening to watch the way in which folks have worked together to find solutions to common problems.
Since March we have featured guest beer provided by a small selection of breweries from across the wider Manchester area, as we wanted to share our platform with peers who were facing an uncertain future.
Recently, we added Pictish - a brewer of outstanding cask beer based in Rochdale - to the guest line-up so we thought it was about time we got them all onto one of our weekly virtual tap room events.
These breweries might not have the high profile attached to some of the guests we've had from North America, but they deserve your time and attention. We're really proud of our city and all of these beers speak to its character and history, giving you a real flavour for the way the scene here has developed.
These weekly events are designed to give you the feel of a night in the pub from the comfort of your own home. We'll taste through each of the beers in the pack while getting behind-the-scenes insight from the brewers, chewing the fat over some of the most important issues of the day and having a lot of fun.
You'll be sent details on how to join the live stream via email so keep an eye out for an email from us in case it slips into your junk folder. Don't worry, we won't be drinking all the beers during the broadcast - enjoy them all at your own pace and you'll be able to re-watch the event in your own time too.
Folks who attend our weekly virtual taproom events also get first access to our weekly new beer releases, as well as some exciting limited releases from the featured guest, before they're publicly available.
