We would love for you to join us for our big opening party with good music, good food, sunshine (please 🙏) and, of course, lots of beer!!

Having successfully undertaken a ‘soft opening’ period, the brewery and taproom is now fully operational with regular opening hours of Friday 4-10pm and Saturday 12-10pm. We produce keg and canned beers that can be found in and around the Manchester area, in places such as the Marble Arch, the Gasworks Brewpub and the Sandbar. 

There will be six keg beers available at the taproom at the opening party, including an Amber IPA, an East Coast Pale Ale, a Grapefruit Wheat Ale and an Australian Brown Ale with locally produced espresso.

“It’s taken a great deal of time, effort and resources for the brewery dream to become a reality,” explains founder and brewer, Paul Greetham, “We’ve successfully become operational and – although this is just the beginning of our new journey – we wanted to celebrate this milestone with a big party and welcome people to come and see (and taste!) what we’ve been able to do so far.” 

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the support of local residents that have popped their head to see what we’re about – some of whom have never been in a brewery before – and have loved it! Giving people their first taste of craft beer is a great experience. Other small businesses, local CAMRA branches and neighbour breweries have also been enormously generous in their support and guidance. We feel very lucky to be here.” 

As well as beer, there will also be food provided by the pastrami and salt beef street food specialists, Pastrami Now. Their pastrami and salt beef is cured, slow cooked and served hot with pickles, cheese and their renowned pink and green sauces. Pastrami Now also serve their sandwiches with great side dishes, a zippy coleslaw and German-style potato salad.

Sandwich anyone??

The opening party will also play host to the exclusive launch of Mistress of Industry Coffee Co.’s first commercially available coffee: their house blend, Working Folk. Mistress of Industry Coffee Co. are Manchester’s newest specialty micro coffee roaster and use the same railway arch as Beatnikz Republic Brewing Co. Their coffee is available in 250g bags to buy at the brewery or from their website. At a future date, the brewery taproom will also serve coffee, but for now it’s only available to takeaway.

We've received praise for our beautiful illustrative can designs. The artist behind these can designs, Marcus Marritt, has illustrated many areas of the brewery and taproom in his distinctive style; these beautiful pieces of artwork will be revealed for the first time at the opening party.

All friends are welcome, so come join us for good food, good tunes and good beer 👍🍻
