Manchester's Best Craft Beer Bars

Craft beer, the educated more independent alternative to your standard bottle of hop laden fare. In the last few years one type of alcoholic beverage has been making a big ripple in the industry: craft beer. With the rise in popularity of unique beers from small, independent breweries, a lot of bars have upped their craft beer game or even opened solely as a craft beer bar. Here we take you through the very best of what Manchester pubs and bars have to offer when it comes to craft beer in the city.

This Northern Quarter bar is sure to cater for all your drinking needs when it comes to anything beer related. With a list that would take you a few weeks (and livers) to plough through, The Port St. Beer House is one of Manchester's finest venues for craft beer drinkers. Set across two floors, there's more than enough room to take it all in for an evening with a group of mates. 

Pie & Ale

3 user reviews 4

If the name wasn't a give away, this Manchester bar is famous for two things. Pie and Ale is situated in the Northern Quarter of this great city and combines a slick modern interior with traditional food and beer. Priding themselves on supporting local micro-breweries and producing handmade pies, Pie and Ale is well worth a visit if lovely local brews are your boozey cup of tea.
