When? Friday June 23

Where? GRUB at Mayfield Depot

Tickets Free, unticketed

Help us kick off Manchester Beer Week in true Mancunian fashion.

We need YOU to come on down, drink great beer, eat great food, chat with great people and maybe even shuffle those dancing feet. Have we got a deal?

To make this utopian dream a reality, we've joined forces with street food legends GRUB to organise a proper shindig at the iconic Mayfield Depot.

A once forgotten train station within spitting distance of Piccadilly, Mayfield Depot will be transformed into an exciting events space from May 19 with GRUB at the helm.

And we thought it was the ideal place to throw a proper Mancunian party for the start of the second Beer Week.

Expect to find a selection of beer from Manchester's best breweries - including a number of specials created especially for the festival - as well as fantastic food, pop-up tastings, talks and DJs.

There's really no excuse to miss this. Wash your hair another night, yeah?
