Join us at Manchester Beer Week

We’ve been working to bring smaller local brewers to our stores since August 2015 when we launched our first regional range in Yorkshire. Since then, we have launched many more including Lancashire (May 2016) where we have 11 breweries represented on our shelves. As well as Lancashire and Yorkshire, we have rolled out local beer side racks into Cheshire, Cornwall, Devon, East Anglia, London and Wales.

Blackjack is just round the corner from the Angel Square office and head brewer Rob was happy to tackle the challenge of making a special brew with a summery twist, using leftover summer fruit compote from Yeovalley yoghurt that would otherwise have gone to waste. The beer uses exclusively British hops (shown in the picture) with Admiral hops used for bitterness and Minstrel hops for fruity aromas.

Manchester Beer Week will return from June 23 to July 2 for another 10-day celebration of the city’s booming brewing industry and pub culture.
