From craft beer delivery to brew-themed merch, we’ve seen it all during lockdown. But as restrictions ease and more venues open their doors, there’s only one thing for it… takeaway beer. Bringing you all the bars, breweries and pubs serving freshly pulled pints in Manchester, we’re here to quench your thirst.
Runaway Brewery at Beer Nouveau
Whether it’s a garden party or living room date night, Runaway Brewery is ensuring that you socially-distance in style. The Manchester brewery is on hand with mini-kegs of fruit punch IPA, mango sour and rhubarb spritz beer, all available for collection from Beer Nouveau’s Ardwick office.
Manchester’s famed Bavarian bar has been keeping busy with new social-distancing measures, Sunday roast collection and freshly poured pints. While you’re missing wild shows and live music at Albert’s Schloss? Get a slice of the action with a takeaway pint and some of their deli dishes.
From chicken schnitzel sandwiches to frozen margaritas and fresh beer, Sammy’s has got it all. Make your way to the Ancoats watering hole for happy hour deals that include 2 cocktails or 3 beers for as little as £10.
Along with takeaway pizza from Nell's, Common is keeping you going with freshly poured pints. Pivoting to collection during the pandemic, the Edge Street bar will have you pairing giant slices with IPAs served in milk bottles.
Manchester Union Lager
Missing those sunny days spent in beer gardens? Us too. While we can’t get there just yet, we can guarantee a hoppy delivery from Manchester Union Lager. The Northern favourite is dispatching cans and growlers all over the city so you can sit back, relax, and sip.
Not only has Blackjack come to your rescue with at-home beers (think cask-in-a-box and mini-kegs), but the Gould Street brewery has a selection that includes porters, IPAs, sours and more. If you don’t fancy delivery, head to Altrincham Market to pick up pre-ordered beer to takeaway.
If a pint isn’t quite enough, then hit up Beatnikz for crowler cans and bag in box beers. Not only does the quirky Manchester brewery offer delivery and click and collect, but their range includes pale ales, raspberry IPAs and bourbon stouts just to name a few.
Upping the takeaway beer game, Port Street Beer House has got some seriously tasty drinks in store. Fill up on craft beer cans or 1 and 2-pint cartons available to pre-order from the online shop. Hungry? There’s bar snacks in the form of crackled pork bites, pitta chips and jalapeno pretzels for that.
This Northern Quarter bar has come to your lockdown rescue with deli snacks, cheese toasties, wine and beer. Alongside cans from local distilleries like Cloudwater and Shindigger, Flok is offering freshly pulled pints served in retro milk cartons. Pick up an eco-friendly Mahou on draught for just £3.50.
A Chorlton favourite, The Beagle is a neighbourhood bar in Manchester. During lockdown, they’re keeping the spirit going with click and collect pints available in sealed containers. Order ahead for collection between Tuesday and Sunday from 4 to 9pm. We’re talking Mikkeller, Magic Rock dark chocolate stout and Hogan’s Cider.
