Using the entire breadth of the style, Pie & Ale have created special savoury pies as well as sweet and opulent dessert pies to showcase some of the best stouts brewed in Manchester. They'll show you just how versatile this beer style can be when it comes to complimenting food. Each pie will be served with a half pint or bottle of the beer used.

Bakewell's world famous Thornbridge brewery will be taking over all 11 keg and 7 cask lines over 10 days at the Crown and Kettle. Expect barrel aged rarities along the way.
Thornbridge beers were first brewed in early 2005 in the grounds of Thornbridge Hall. A focus on traditional recipes with a modern twist through the use of a wide range of ingredients coupled with the innovation and passion of the brewing team was successful and after winning a succession of awards a new, state of the art, brewery was opened at Bakewell in September 2009 to meet with demand. The brewery is now considered by many to be one of the leading new breweries in the UK.
