Manchester Beer Week is fiercely proud of the city it represents.
At the festival's core is a desire to champion Manchester and to shine a spotlight on the people, businesses and cultural experiences that make it so unique.
We want to give back to the city that has given us so much, which is why charity is a vital element of Manchester Beer Week.
So we have nominated community foundation Forever Manchester as our chosen charity to raise funds for a wide range of community projects across Greater Manchester. Keep an eye out for Forever Manchester events and representatives throughout the festival and please give generously.
Forever Manchester has also teamed up with Manchester Brewing Co to produce Ten Boroughs, a special beer that will be on sale throughout Manchester Beer Week and Forever Manchester Week. 10p of every pint and 25p of every can sold will be donated to Forever Manchester.
A word from our charity partner...
We are Forever Manchester.
We are a charity with a purpose.
We fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester with donations raised from individuals, families and businesses.
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to be happy.
We believe that our communities have unlimited potential and boast thousands of talented individuals capable of using what they have to secure what they need.
We believe that this potential is often overlooked and undervalued, but critical if we are to build happy, stronger, thriving communities.
We do not label people as disadvantaged or define them by their problems and needs.
We focus on what’s strong not what’s wrong.
We provide a hand up not a hand out.
We aim to strengthen communities and enrich local life by inspiring local people to do extraordinary things together.
We are Forever Manchester and this is charity the Mancunian Way.
