Manchester Beer & Cider Festival gears up

Manchester Beer & Cider Festival gears up

This month will see the return of northern England's most spectacular celebration of beer and cider - the aptly named Manchester Beer & Cider Festival. 

Taking place once again at Manchester's National Cycling Centre, the celebration boasts more than 500 beers, ciders and perries that are set out for attendees to sample as they wander between the stalls.

Among the enormous selection, connoisseurs of alcoholic beverages will be quick to spot some of the very best cask conditioned craft beers available, selected from various brewers from around the country.

Everyone can count on finding something they like - from traditional bitters to hop front IPAs and the most cutting edge sours and saisons, to ye olde worlde apple cider imported straight from Somerset and unique perries originating from Europe, no one will be left out.

Beer enthusiasts will undoubtedly want to see how the rest of the continent compares, with beverages from as far afield as the USA, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and the Czech Republic available to sample.

Those concerned about a repeat of last year when unprecedented visitor numbers drank the event dry well before the end need not be worried - the organisers have ordered an impressive 60,000 pints of alcohol, more than 40 per cent more than last year's quota. 

The fun gets underway later this month, with the National Cycling Centre being utterly transformed for the event between the dates of January 21st and the 24th.

Nobody wants to drink on an empty stomach so be sure to sample some of the delicious food being offered by the outlets that have been set up alongside the beer servers for that exact purpose.
