Official Manchester Beer & Cider Festival Sponsors!

The CRL Group are Official Manchester Beer & Cider Festival Sponsors!

The Manchester Beer and Cider Festival is returning to Manchester Central for it’s third year from Thursday 25th to Saturday 27th January 2018. With so many fantastic breweries around, the festival offers the opportunity to taste a variety of ales from the best of the best. With Manchester quickly becoming the cask capital of Britain, we are excited to announce that we are official sponsors of the festival. We will be supplying our fleet of Commercial Refrigeration Trailers to the festival, ensuring that breweries benefit from safe lockable doors, adjustable legs, LED low energy lights and more.

The event is organised by the nine Greater Manchester branches of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA). The organisation have been campaigning for 45 years to ensure that the beer industry isn’t dominated by a handful of big companies who push low flavour and quality products onto the consumer. CAMRA aim to stop tax killing beer and pubs, raise the profile of pub-going, secure government support for pubs and also encourage people to try a range of ales, ciders and perries. They have succeeded in securing the better future for the industry which has seen the number of UK breweries grow dramatically.

The Manchester Beer and Cider Festival is set to be bigger and better this year after 2017 seeing a staggering 62,000 pints poured at the three day festival, that’s almost 27 pints per minute! There will be a Manchester Brewers’ Challenge that will determine the best beer in Manchester, allowing breweries to enter just one beer for the judges to taste! The beverages will be judged on aroma, taste, aftertaste and sale ability so there will definitely be a lot of competition in the running.

With over 13,500 attendees in 2017, the event is definitely set to be a hit. Tickets retail from £7 which includes a £3 refundable glass hire, perfect for a day out with a partner or friends.
