MPMF Logo light background 1The pandemic has ruled out Manchester Beer & Cider Festival returning to the city in 2021. But for beer lovers in the city and beyond, the loss of the physical festival is the least of our worries.

Pubs up and down the country have been struggling to eek out any kind of existence since the first lockdown closed all their doors back in March 2020. And Greater Manchester’s pubs have been under lockdown or severe restrictions more than anywhere else in the country.

At Manchester Beer and Cider festival we love beer and cider. But it was the pubs that let us discover the great ales and gorgeous ciders while socialising with friends and family. Pubs are a vital part of our social fabric and we want to say as loud as we can that PUBS MATTER.

So at Manchester Beer and Cider Festival we have  teamed up with five of Greater Manchester’s finest pubs to bring you the Manchester Pubs Matter Festival.

The Manchester Pubs Matter Festival will run from Wednesday 17th to Saturday 20th February 2021. 

For details of how to participate see the MBCF web site

There over 50 small breweries in our LocalAle scheme who benifit from the Small Brewers Relief Scheme making it vital to a thriving beer market and consumer choice. Changes proposed by the government could see support removed from some of the smallest brewers. CAMRA is calling on the government to publish the full details of their proposals and ensure that no brewer loses relief they currently receive. You can help support small brewers by signing the petition at:-

*** Update *** - Pubs can now sell alcohol provided its pre-ordered.

The new lockdown rules to be implemented from 5th November state that:-

"Hospitality venues like restaurants, bars and pubs must close, but can still provide takeaway and delivery services. However, takeaway of alcohol will not be allowed."

In previous lock downs offering alcohol for takeaway was a lifeline for many pubs, and particularly breweries. It is a baffling and damaging decision to remove this option, particularly when other businesses such as supermarkets can continue to sell takeaway alcohol. CAMRA has written to the goverment asking for this restriction to be removed. You can read the full text of this letter here:-

https://camra.org.uk/press_release/camra-slams-proposed-ban-on-takeaway-beer-sales-for-pubs-and-brewers/ 

Concerned pub goers and beer drinkers in England can email their MP here: 

https://camra.e-activist.com/page/68352/action/1  

and ask for the removal of the takeaway restrictions, and for a proper support package for pubs and brewers to be implemented.

All Pubs, Clubs and Restraunts have now closed to on-premises consumption, but some, as listed below, are offereing take out or delivery services.

You can also use the:-

"Only show venues with information about COVID-19 temporary arrangements"  

search filter on https://whatpub.com/  to narrow the search.

If you find any errors please tell us about it using the "Pub News" drop-down on the  Contact Form or by e-mailing whatpub (at) thcamra.org.uk
