In ‘normal times’, our small team at Craft Beer Tour Manchester run tasting tours of the city, walking from one of Manchester’s finest craft breweries to the next. Unfortunately, our tours have not been possible since March 2020 and like many Manchester-based businesses, we have had to find ways to adapt to the new environment.

Since November 2020 we have been delivering live tasting sessions online so you can enjoy a craft beer experience from home. Each event runs in conjunction with a different craft brewery where we will explore four beers together in an interactive, guided tasting session.

Originally set up to explore the best of the Manchester craft beer scene, we’ve now been teaming up with breweries from all over the UK, as well as more from our home city. Each session includes four beers from one of your favourite breweries, who will guide us through each of them in turn. The sessions are intended to be very interactive and give you the chance to ask questions directly to the brewery.

We’ve now got events every Friday and Saturday evening to help get you through the rest of lockdown, and beyond!

Each event includes:

- Session ran in conjunction with a UK craft brewery.

- Four beers from the brewery delivered to each participant in advance of the session.

- UK delivery included in the price.

- A 1 ½ hour live tasting experience with the brewery as they guide us through the beers on offer via Zoom.

- Interactive session with the opportunity to ask questions about the beer direct to the brewery via Zoom chat.

- 50p from every person on the tour is donated to

We have always donated part of our income to charity and for our virtual sessions in 2021, 50p from every ticket sold will be donated to The Campaign to End Loneliness. We believe it has never been more important to stay connected, when we have been forced to be disconnected in so many ways.

Join us for a beer (or four!) at one of our virtual sessions- can’t wait to see you there!
