What the papers said - well one at least! (Includes a video)
The final National Winter Ales Festival to be held in Manchester was once again a great success with around 8500 customers visiting over the four days of the festival.
The 2014 National Winter Ales Festival will be hosted in Derby with details to be announced.
The Festival has been held in Manchester since 2005, originally at New Century Hall, moving to the Sheridan Suite in 2010 following the closure of New Century Hall by owners The Co-operative. It has grown year on year, with the 2013 festival having more beers than ever before.
The good news for fans of the Manchester festival is that organisers have announced that the legacy of the National Festival will be a new Manchester Beer And Cider Festival to be held in the stunning surroundings of The Velodrome at the National Cycling Centre – home of Team GB’s multi-medal winning cycling team.
The new festival will run from 23rd to 26th January 2014, with organisers announcing that the new venue has the potential to be bigger and better than any previous beer festival in Manchester.
