GRUB’s summer beer festival, The Beer Up Here, is back for summer 2019.
From Buxton to Orkney, from Northern Ireland to Northumberland and from Yorkshire to Cumbria and plenty of Manchester beer The Beer Up Here will be pouring fantastic beers, mostly in pints, to the people of Manchester over the first weekend of July.
GRUB has a strong reputation for promoting local and northern beer at their weekly street food festival so extending this approach to a full on festival was the next logical step. As with all of their events the food and the beers are going to be top notch but the real focus is going to be on everyone having a good time, everyone is welcome including dogs and kids and you don't need to know everything about beer to enjoy yourself. Almost all of the beers at the festival will be 'session beers', classic beers designed to be supped all day that you can enjoy a pint of. The breweries picked range from local modern craft beer heroes like Runaway Brewery or Track Brew co. alongside classic traditional family brewers such as Joseph Holts. Of course the grub has not been forgotten, on hand to provide amazing northern beer food are the GF Pie Company serving up pie and peas and The Little Fishy frying up fish and chips all day. On top of all the beer and grub you’ll also be able to visit the Steep Soda shandy bar who will be serving up thirst quenching shandies made by combining their hand made sodas with great beer from local breweries.
Jason Bailey, Director of GRUB said: “It's super important for us that our beer is produced locally, there's really no reason to go too far to find outstanding beer so we’re so happy to see The Beer Up Here back”.
The Beer Up Here kicks off Friday 5th July at 3pm and runs until Sunday 7th July with four sessions over the three days. The event is ticketed and welcomes all comers including families and dogs. Full details of the event, and to purchase tickets can be found on the ticket page here.
