Manchester Brewery Tours is launching on 3rd September 2016 with a very special walking tour of 3 Manchester microbreweries.

Your guide will meet you at Vimto Park near Piccadilly Station at 1pm. Click here for a map.

We'll then begin a stroll down to what has become known as the Piccadilly Beer Mile.

We will be visiting the following places for a special behind the scenes look at the fantastic breweries that have congregated in the industrial landscape of Manchester's railway arches.

1.30pm Beer Nouveau (Brewery Tour and Tastings)

Beer Nouveau is opening his doors for a tour of the equipment led by the founder and brewer himself - Steve Dunkley. Learn about the brewing process and ask Steve questions along the way. Find out how the brewery started and taste some of the delicious beers on offer.

We'll also grab some food TBC (included with your ticket) to make sure you are ready for the next stop on the tour. Street food menu at Beer Nouveau to be confirmed.

Find more info about the brewery at

2.30pm Carbon Smith Brewery

Edinburgh born and Manchester adopted brewer Ollie Smith is just in the final process of putting together all the shining new kit for his Manchester brewery.

Ollie will take our guests on a tour around all the new equipment and explain how his journey from a small brewing kit came to be where it is today.

Tastings included at this stop too.

3.30pm Alphabet Brewery 

We'll round off the day with the final stop at Alphabet Brewery. All guests will be given a drink to toast the day plus a take home beer to leave with. We'll also be giving one lucky person a 6 pack in our competition.

A few more details

This tour is a leisurely afternoon stroll however does require some walking so be prepared and also remember to bring a brolly if it's raining. We expect all people to drink and behave responsibly so as to ensure that everyone enjoys the experience. This is an informative introduction to beer brewing and tasting rather than a p*** up in a brewery! The tour does not allow fancy dress. Large groups are welcome but must be prepared to behave so that it doesn't affect the enjoyment of others on the tour.

After the tour finishes then guests may wish to spend time visiting the other amazing taprooms in the area. We'll be staying around for a few ourselves!

Any questions just email
