International Brewing & Cider Festival

The city of Manchester will host the first ever International Brewing & Cider Festival, a two-day ticketed event showcasing the finest beers and ciders from around the world.

The Festival will take place on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd March 2024 at Depot Mayfield Manchester, offering a rare opportunity for the public to taste a vast range of local, national and international drinks, including award-winning beers and ciders from The International Brewing & Cider Awards.

The Festival is being organised by the world’s most historic international beer and cider competition, The International Brewing & Cider Awards, which will relocate to Manchester having been hosted at The National Brewery Centre in Burton-upon-Trent for the last decade.

The biennial competition, known as the ‘Oscars’ of the brewing and cider world, will see industry professionals gather to celebrate the extraordinary and well-crafted beer and cider from all corners of the world.

For the first time in its 137-year history, the Awards will be accompanied by a public festival, and represents a significant milestone in the Awards’ commitment to promoting and supporting the brewing and cider industries.

Visitors will have a unique opportunity to sample beers or ciders from worldwide brewers and cidermakers entered into the International Brewing & Cider Awards, including the award-winners.

This one-of-a-kind Festival aims to bring together beer and cider enthusiasts, industry professionals and the general public for a weekend filled with camaraderie, live music, mouth-watering food trucks, and most importantly, well-crafted beer and exceptional cider.
