    Marble collab beer

    As well as selling 60,000 pints of beer during the four-day event, the Manchester Beer and Cider Festival also hosted CAMRA’s North West regional competitions.

    Three of our beers were finalists in CAMRA’s North West Champion Winter Beer of Britain competition, Brodie’s Prime, Dry Stone Stout and Brodie’s Prime Export.

    Cumbrian Five Hop won yet another award by taking Silver in the competition for Overall Champion Beer of the North West 2015 having won Gold in its category late last year.

    We had a great response to our collaboration beer, Beer Matts’, brewed with Marble specially for the festival. Our head brewer Matt Clarke joined Marble's head brewer Matt Howgate to brew the 5% beer which combines the core of Marble’s Lagonda IPA - Centennial, Simcoe & Citra, with Cumbrian Five Hop’s Bramling Cross & Amarillo, producing one heck of a hoppy beer.

  • Hawkshead Brewery bar at Manchester Beer Festival
    Beer festival at the velodrome

    We’ve got a bar at one of the North’s biggest beer events later this month - the CAMRA organised Manchester Beer and Cider Festival held at the Velodrome 21-24 January.

    We’re one of 10 innovative northern breweries to be invited to have a bar at the festival, others include Manchester’s own Blackjack and West Yorkshire’s Ilkley brewery (the full list can be found on the festival website). There will be 19 bars spread across the floor in the middle of the track and on the concourse level, featuring over 500 beers in all.

    On our bar we’ll have Windermere Pale, Bitter, Dry Stone Stout, Sundown, Brodie’s Prime, Lakeland Lager, Cumbrian Five Hop, NZPA and Brodie’s Prime Export. Brewery staff will be on hand to chat to drinkers and answer any questions.

    We’ll also be launching a collaboration beer, brewed with Marble. This is just one of a number of special brews on offer, organised by the festival between selected breweries and designed to showcase the new boundaries of British beer.
    Our head brewer Matt and fellow Hawkshead brewer Mark will be joining the Marble team today, Tuesday 6th January, to brew the festival special - a mash up of Cumbrian Five Hop and Lagonda IPA. For trade enquiries and pre-orders please contact Marble.
