Greater Manchester’s Real Ales Grace Great British Beer Festival
 

REAL ales from breweries in the Greater Manchester region will take pride of place at the bar at the Campaign for Real Ale’s (CAMRA’s) flagship Great British Beer Festival this week.

 “There really has never been a better time to discover real ale, with over a thousand breweries in the UK producing over 5000 different beers.”

The week-long event is taking place at London’s Olympia from Tuesday 13 August to Saturday 17 August and is expected to attract over 55,000 visitors, who will be able to sample over 800 beers from around the UK, international brews from Belgium, Germany, Italy, and the USA, as well as traditional ciders and perries.

CAMRA Chief Executive, Mike Benner, explained: “There really has never been a better time to discover real ale, with over a thousand breweries in the UK producing over 5000 different beers. In fact the choice is so great that this year we have taken the decision to feature just a single beer from most breweries, in order to represent the largest number of breweries as possible from across the UK.”

Despite the one brewery, one beer rule, Manchester company, Marble Beers, who have just celebrated their 125th birthday, have two beers on sale at the festival. Ginger Marble and Dobber are both represented.

As well as Marble, the following beers from the Greater Manchester region will also feature.
