About Us

The latest craft beer festival will be staged at the beautiful 53two Studios in Manchester City Centre and will see breweries put their best beer forward in a bid to be crowned the ‘Peoples’ or ‘Brewers’ choice. We’re going to pull out all the stops; in order to play host to some of our favourite breweries from not only our great city of Manchester, but also from all over the world.


Buy a ticket

There is room for multiple beer bars with up to 15-20 lines across the festival bars. The main bar will include all those tasty beverages from breweries across the country and beyond. The Battle Bar will see choice breweries pit their best beers against each other for a chance to win one of two festivals awards.


Brewing Good For Charity

At this event you get to party, try local and international beers, eat delicious food and support Manchester charities in the process! Of course the backbone of the event is craft beer, but we also feel we can do some good at the same time. This is why we’re going to be raising money for community projects and charities - donations will be chosen by The Battle of the Beers winning breweries.


Cold Weather, Warm Food

Plus with it being winter, we will be providing street food to warm the body and soul. There will be exclusive beer tasting sessions, snack stalls, and music from some of Manchester’s finest DJs curated by Lee Gorton. Craft Beer. Music. Food. Good Times.
