Manchester Beer Festival 2016

Post by Fred Gumby » Thu Jan 07, 2016 12:13 pm

A group of the usual ne'er do wells will be off to the Manchester Beer Festival on Thursday 21st January. The current plan is to get the 10.52 train from Chester to Manchester Oxford Road. Anyone who fancies going is welcome to join us.

This event was at the Velodrome for the past couple of years but has now moved to Manchester Central (formerly G-Mex) opposite the Bridgewater Hall and will feature over 500 beers. Admission is free on Thursday for CAMRA members and £3 for non-members. The venue is about 10 minutes walk from Oxford Road and slightly further from Piccadilly.

Afterwards we will probably stagger round a few pubs including the recently opened Cafe Beermoth on Spring Gardens

At least somebody is still awake on this board. I'll blame it on my post New Year torpor. The more perceptive readers will have realised that it should have been January and not December 2016. Now edited with the correct date.

I hope we are all going to stick by the governments new safe drinking limits of 14 units per week, or 5 pints of 5% beer!
