We’re coming to Manchester and Crimbo Crawl Eve is now A Thing.

This year the Crimbo Crawl heads North again to one of the undisputed heavyweights of the UK beer scene.

Over the past few Crimbo Crawl’s we’ve seen more people arriving to our chosen city the night before and last year in Bristol, Crimbo Crawl Eve was born, so we’ll be continuing that tradition this year.

Full details of our plans are below – as always, these are the places where we plan to head for these times, if there are other places you’d rather visit, feel free to do so, but this is where Martin and Steve will be found (assuming Steve doesn’t wander off again)…

#CrimboCrawlEve – Friday 6 December

From 1700 we will be at the amazing Beer Nouveau, where owner Steve will be around to talk all things beer, brewing, beer, history and beer.

#CrimboCrawl19 – Saturday 7 December

We’ll be starting at 1100 at The Marble Arch, who are opening one hour early exclusively for the Crimbo Crawl. However, place for this are limited and need to be booked in advance via this link (use the password ‘sparkler’ to access the page)

From here it’s around a 25 minute walk (or short cab ride) to our next venue, where from 1330 we will be hosted at Cloudwater Unit 9. Plans are still being finalised but there may be an opportunity to have a beer with some of the Cloudwater team and for those who are interested to have a little look around the brewery

At 1500 we’ll be moving onto the Track Taproom, and then Port Street Beer House for 1630, Beatnikz NQ at 1800 before finishing the Crimbo Crawl at Cafe Beermoth from 2030 onwards

Some of you will have noticed this is a much smaller route than in previous years – we’ve taken on feedback over time and this year are trying to spend more time in fewer places rather than rushing to get from venue to venue for a quick beer before moving on

We hope that’ll you’ll join us for some (or all) of the events and we’re looking forward to having a few beers with you all

The route, pub details and timings are included in the map below. Many thanks Jan at Marble Brewery, Connor at Cloudwater, and Tasha & John at Beatnikz Republic for their support in making the day special
