Red, White & Brew: A Month of American Events at Sandinista

For the entire month of July, America is taking over Sandinista with a range of events, food and drinks to bring a bit of the old US of A right to Manchester. You'll even get chance to take a swing at a Donald Trump piñata!

Firstly, we should talk about the beer. With 8 rotating lines to fill, Sandinista will be offering the best American styles from across the pond (and a little closer to home).

Expect the likes of Lagunitas and Stone to make an appearance alongside more local northern breweries such as Shindigger and Magic Rock all offering rare and exclusive beers that you won’t find elsewhere.

On top of this Sandinista will also be hosting some special events throughout July…

Independence Day Party
Friday 6th July

American Tap Takeover launch night
Beer Pong

Kicking off these parties in style will be the Independence Day party on the 6th July (because everything is better on a Friday) with some amazing beers as well as plenty of FREE American inspired tapas. The house DJ will also be playing from 10pm dropping some classic American rock ‘n’ roll. And of course, it wouldn’t be an American party without some red cups and a few games of beer pong!
