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