Food, Non-Beer and Tastings

We will have drinks that are alcoholic but not beer, as well as soft drinks, available at the festival, as well as our food village and tastings operating at every session. We will announce all details regarding these as soon as possible, and well in advance of the festival.

Practical things

Children are very welcome to attend IMBC before 7pm and must always be accompanied by a guardian.

Guide Dogs are welcome but unfortunately, other dog friends are not able to join the fun due to the nature of the Grade II* listed building, IMBC is also a busy, noisy event.

More information on Tickets, Session Tokens, Food and Entry details can be found at www.indymanbeercon.co.uk

Independent Manchester Beer Convention is brought to you by the team behind Nell’s PizzaCommonPort Street Beer House & The Beagle. IMBC came about through being inspired by the UK’s craft beer movement and frustration that beer festivals in their current form weren’t really representative of this exciting and dynamic part of the industry. We wanted to put on an event that has amazing beer (obviously) but was open-minded, inclusive and modern.
