11 days of beer

Stockport Beer Week is back again for its fifth year. Coordinated by Stockport and South Manchester CAMRA, the event runs from 19th September to 29th September 2019.

Run in conjunction with
National Cask Ale Week.

Stockport Beer Week is back again for 2019 and will run from 19th - 29th September as part of National Cask Ale Week. It's a celebration of good pubs and beer in and around the centre of Stockport - and there are plenty of both to choose from. There's also the opportunity to learn more about the pubs you are drinking in, the beers you are quaffing and the industry as a whole.

Our team of eager volunteers are now engaged in formulating a varied and interesting programme for your entertainment and drinking pleasure. There's still plenty of hard work to do but we can confirm that stand-up comedian James Dowdeswell (Extras, Russell Howard's Good News, Comedy Club Awards) will open the Week with his show "A Comedian Stands Up For Pubs - a Pub Manifesto". He was brought up in a pub, so he has some forthright views and amusing stories to tell. He will also be signing his book, "A Pub Manifesto" on the night.

Also confirmed is a tasting of "Beers Styles through The Ages" by Annabel Smith, a Beer Sommelier and freelance beer trainer, consultant and writer. She was once Cask Marque's first female beer inspector working alongside the organisationís 49 male inspectors and was Imbibe Magazine's Educator of the Year in 2017. And Dave Porter, who installed the micro brewery at the Hope in Stockport, will tell us about some of his interesting experiences building breweries and brewing around the world.

Back for another year is the Ale Trail with prizes from Robinson's brewery and you can expect tap takeovers, meet the brewer events, heritage pub visits and walks and good music. We are working with the Council and Totally Stockport to help promote the town centre, so please put the dates in your diary and watch for updates on the website and in Opening Times as more events are added.


The programme of events is still being firmed up, so keep checking back for the latest news.

There will also be information on the Branch's Facebook and Twitter pages.
