Each week we catch up with one of Manchester's favourite bartenders to talk about the city's bars, pubs and clubs. After all, what better way to get an insight into a bar than from the person serving the drinks? This week we ask Caleb Hill, bartender at Pie & Ale, a few questions...

Caleb Hill Pie & Ale

Caleb Hill is a bartender at new Northern Quarter bar, Pie & Ale

Name: Caleb Hill

Age: 31

Works at: Pie & Ale

You should come for drinks at Pie & Ale because… we have a rotating selection of fresh pies made every day in house, as well as a choice of real ales from local micro breweries. There's also a retro games machine built into one of the tables!

I'll whip you up a… Sage on Pils, one of our Ale Cocktails. It's a refreshing, fruity twist on a Tom Collins with Tanqueray Gin, Dark Agave, Lychee Syrup, lemon and fresh sage topped with Pilsner Urquell. 

Mine's a… classic Makers Mark Old Fashioned 

When I'm off duty you'll normally find me… at Kosmonaut or Apotheca - best cocktails in Manchester!

The best thing about being a bartender is… the customer interaction, and of course sampling the world's best spirits and beers.

Not many people know this but… I was lost out to sea for three days in Indonesia!

Come in and see me on… most Friday and Saturday nights.
