With terms now agreed, it’s time to reveal the location of Brewdog’s proposed Manchester outlet. Opening next spring, it’s on the junction of Dale St/Newton St and Port St. Yes, Port St. So, with its proximity to a certain Port Street Beer House, and with the Soup Kitchen also nearby, there’s potential for a good mini-crawl. It also rather exacerbates the fracture of the traditional N/4. With other new openings planned, it looks as though this side of Manchester is definitely on the up.
How will Mancunians take to the bad boys of "craft" brewing? How will all keg go down in a cask heartland? As always, the proof will be in the drinking.
