This years Manchester Beer Week sees the return of the highly successful Manchester Homebrew Expo.
This event is a showcase of the best beer brewed by amateur brewers from across Manchester and the North West. The brewers will continue to dispel the myth that homebrewed beer is cheap and nasty by serving some of the best beers brewed in the region.
It is taking place on Sunday 2nd July at Beer Nouveau Brewery Tap(75 North Western Street) from 12 noon until 6pm.
The venue will be given over to homebrewers serving their beers from bottles, casks and kegs.
There will be two homebrewing competitions happening on the day.
Best in Show Competition
All visitors to the Expo will be asked to rate the beers they try and provide feedback. At the end of the day the scores will be averaged and the beer with the highest score will be declared the winner.
A Beer for Manchester
This competition will be judged by a group of professional brewers and beer experts. The challenge is to brew 'A Beer for Manchester'. How the brewer interprets the theme is entirely open.
Information for Brewers
Brewers can bring their beers in cornellius kegs, pressure barrels or in bottles. If you are planning on bringing kegs or barrels that need gas please bring connectors (gas and some taps will be available).
To enter the 'A Beer for Manchester' competition please contact us. You will need to provide two bottles on the day labeled with an entry number (provided by us) and a short description of why the beer fits the theme.
