The second annual Stockport Beer Week returns to the town centre on Thursday in support of Stockport’s finest local pubs and breweries.
After a successful launch last year, the town centre will see eleven jam-packed days of events from September 22 to October 2, ranging from beer tours, a beer festival and Meet the Brewer evenings.
Coinciding with Cask Ale Week, this year’s event will raise funds for Stockport charity Walthew House, which supports people in Stockport with sensory loss.
Stockport Beer Week is co-sponsored by Robinsons Brewery and Metro Taxis and supported by Stockport Council
Councillor Kate Butler, Stockport Council’s Executive Member for Economy and Regeneration, said: “I’ve been looking forward to Stockport Beer Week since it was announced as last year it proved to be a big hit for the town.
“One thing I’m particularly looking forward to is the historic pub walk in the Market Place and, of course, I’m also hoping to see the hustle and bustle of lots of people in some of our town’s great pubs.”
With no fewer than eight breweries in Stockport and a thriving pub scene, organisers Stockport and South Manchester Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) hope that this year’s event will keep people coming back to Stockport’s fast growing food and drink scene for many years to come.
Stockport and South Manchester CAMRA Chairman John Clarke said: “After a successful first event last year highlighting Stockport town centre pubs and breweries, 2016 will see an expanded event.
“We look forward to welcoming first-time visitors and locals alike to sample the beery delights of the town. Whatever your interest in pubs and cask beer, there’s something for everyone”.
