Manchester Craft Beer Festival Meet Up

  • 5th Jul, 2024
  • 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Our Marketing & Events Officer, Kimberley Spivey is teaming up with Manchester based Beer Writer (and Guild Member), Matt Curtis to host an informal guild meet-up between sessions at Manchester Craft Beer Festival, Friday 5th July at Balance Brewing and Blending. Guild Chair, Jonny Garrett will also be at the meet-up, so if you have any guild related questions, he’ll be on hand to answer them.

If you don’t have tickets for the festival yet, fear not because our partners, We Are Beer have kindly offered guild members a free ticket to the Friday sessions taking place: 11.30-4.30pm and 6-11.30pm at Manchester Depot, so you can enjoy over 500+ beers from 80 breweries.

In between sessions, Matt and Kimberley invite you to join them at Balance Brewing and Blending at 4.30-6pm. The team at Balance will be on hand to give a mini tour and just generally showcase their awesomeness.  There’ll most likely be pizza too.

If you can’t make the festival, feel free to still join us at Balance Brewing for the meet up.

Please RSVP your attendance for the meet up at Balance via before Wednesday 3rd July, so we can manage numbers.

You can also claim your day and evening session tickets for Friday 5th July at Manchester Craft Beer Festival via and using the code BeerGuildMCBF24.
