Robinson’s Pub on the Hub

Stockport based brewery, Robinsons, has 360 pubs situated within the stunning settings of Cheshire, Derbyshire, Cumbria and Wales, but between the 27th September and the 4th October, Manchester Food and Drink Festival will play host to its 361st – The Pub on the Hub!

We’re very excited to announce that Robinsons Pub on the Hub is back for its third year running to grace Albert Square with its impressive range of beers – all brewed with their brand new Brew House which has the largest Hopnik in the world!

The Pub on the Hub will be the city’s very own pop up beer house with a bounty of Robinson’s cask ales, cosy furnishings, pub games and everything you’d expect from your local boozer… Plus a few surprises thrown in.

Robinson’s have revealed that the superstar beers to be served include: Unicorn, Dizzy Blonde, 1892, Double Hop, Cwrw’r Ddraig Aur, Old Tom, XB, Cumbria Way, elbow’s ‘build a rocket boys!’, Green Bullet and even a one-off MFDF Ale!

We’re leaving it up to you, the public, to come up with the best name for the MFDF 15th anniversary ale, so please email your suggestions to pickme@foodanddrinkfestival. A shortlist will be drawn up and the favourite will be chosen by the festival directors and Mr. John Robinson himself!
