What to expect – Indy Man Beer Con 2019

Indy Man Beer Con (or Independent Manchester Beer Convention for the uninitiated) is an awesome celebration of beer from across the UK, Europe and further afield.

It’s a four day event that takes place in Manchester at the Victoria Baths between 3rd and 6th of October.

Planning on heading to Manchester for IMBC? Here’s what to expect…


Indy Man Beer Con has invited some of the best breweries in the country and beyond to take part, including the likes of Wylam, Thornbridge, Siren Craft and local favourites, Cloudwater.

With over 60 brewers exhibiting, there’s bound to be a new beer you’ve never tried before…

This is a great event for anyone who has a passion for craft beer.

The Thirsty Games

The Thirsty Games is a legendary competition designed to find the best up and coming small brewery in the UK. Last year’s winning brewers were Liquid Light from Nottingham.

The winner will receive the prestigious title of Thirsty Games 2019 champions.

We’ll be sponsoring these games, so keep an eye out on for some familiar faces from the Simpsons Malt team!

Indy Man Beer Village

As well as the main festival which takes place at Victoria Baths, this year a series of fringe pop-up events will happen at the nearby Pilcrow Pub. Keep an eye on IMBC’s social channels for news of these super cool events.
