Beer Of The Week # 5 // Brightside Mancunian

The Mancunian

A family run business that bravely turned their back on nearly 30 years of baking to set up their own brewery, to much success. The family behind Brightside beers have been quietly becoming the toast of Manchester and beyond.

This is a lightly bitter blonde IPA, from their ‘Manchester Icons’, holds peach and banana toffee on the nose, contrasted against citrus and gentle hopiness, contrasted against a light bitterness it is well balanced and makes for a very enjoyable, refreshing real ale. ABV 4.5 % // 500ml – £2.80
