The wait is finally over: we can now all enjoy a brew from our favourite pub again – and we couldn’t be happier.
With that in mind, we decided to round up some of the best outdoor drinking locations in our neck of the woods to suit all weathers (this is still England after all). So, keep reading to uncover three cracking beer gardens in Manchester to visit this spring.
Seven Bro7hers Beerhouse
Located in one of Manchester’s coolest neighbourhoods is a rustic beerhouse that belongs to Seven Bro7hers Brewing Co.
To call at this Ancoats-based venue, you can either book in advance, or just walk in on the day. It’s perfect for when you find yourself suddenly craving a cold one on a sunny afternoon. You’re welcome to bring your pooch along, too; in fact, it’s encouraged!
Alongside all of this brewer’s famous pints, you can also savour several spirits and wonderful wines here. Plus, there’s a tasty food menu to choose from. If you can’t wait to try this family of brews, why not buy a case of the stuff from us? Pick up a 12-pack of Easy IPA to excite your taste buds.
Runaway Brewery Beer Garden
Just a five-minute walk away from Manchester Victoria is the taproom and newly-opened beer garden by Runaway Brewery. Select a draught beer fresh from the tap or grab a refreshing soft drink to sup on. Either way, be sure to get a delectable slice of pizza to accompany your tipple, served up by Honest Crust Sourdough Pizza.
You can nab a table here for you and five of your mates for up to two hours. However, the beer garden only opens on a Friday night and a Saturday, so you’d better book soon to secure your spot. Pop-up parasols and gazebos are also provided, so you don’t need to worry about a small shower getting in the way of you and your pint.
If you fancy indulging in one of these brilliant brews before the weekend, opt for a pack of its flagship pale ale before you go.
The beloved Alphabet Brewing Co. brings you its on-site taproom, where you can sample up to 10 beers straight from the keg. Plus, the fridges are stocked full of crisp cans – the choice is yours. It’s open Friday night and all day Saturday, so bag your table online, or stroll up to see if there’s any spare room.
Thanks to its handy location underneath some railway arches, the seating here is almost completely sheltered from any potential rain. Even better, if it does start to get chilly, there are a few patio heaters to plonk yourself next to.
Once you’ve visited, you’ll be itching to explore more of ABC’s revered range. Well, it’s as simple as ordering a box online. The hard part will be choosing which one you want to taste first! We recommend the session IPA, Charlie Don’t Surf, for a citrus explosion in a glass.
