This weekend, the garden at new rental neighbourhood Kampus will be transformed into a weekend of food, music and beers from all over the country, with brewers such as Cloudwater and Vocation travelling in to showcase their latest brews.

Summer Beer Thing, this year running from Friday 24th June – Sunday 26th June, is the sister festival to Indy Man Beer Con who recently announced their 10th year in September. 

Kampus’ buzzing outdoor space marks a very apt location for this year’s festival as it returns to Manchester this summer with a brand new lineup of breweries and food traders, including Nell’s Pizza, Levanter, Beeswing and soon to be Kampus resident operators, Madre, Pollen and Great North Pie Co

A celebration of all that is seasonal, regional, and interesting in the world of beer and beyond, Summer Beer Thing began in 2017 at Sadler’s Yard, with over 3,000 people visiting across the weekend each year.  

There’s plenty for experts and beginners in the world of craft ale this year, as the festival is a showcase of different beer styles with bars dedicated to hoppy, session, fruit and sour beers and the feel of a party with booze as the focal point all weekend!

This year’s event at Kampus also features a wine bar, cocktails in collaboration with Campari and a range of interesting and creative non alcoholic options as the team work hard to make sure it’s a truly inclusive event with something for everyone.

Tickets are priced between £6-£10 and are on sale now via the Summer Beer Thing website, which you can find linked below

Ticket holders will also receive a branded glass and can purchase tokens to spend at a range of festival bars featuring craft beers, fruits and sours, hoppy, hoppier and session beers as well as a range of non-beer drinks.
