Since opening earlier this year, Manchester’s Port Street Beer House has quickly staked its claim as one of the very best pubs in town, with an ever-changing roster of quality cask ales, draught beers and fridges jam-packed with tasty (albeit pricey, it has to be said) bottled delights and a developing roster of events and special occasions.
The latest addition to the Port Street calendar is their first American Beer Festival, which kicks off tomorrow. The PSBH always has at least a couple of US beers on draught, but it sounds like they’re really pushing the Trans-Atlantic boat out for the festival, because here’s what they’ve got lined up:
On offer throughout the festival there will be cask, draught and bottles from Anchor, Brooklyn, Caldera, Coronado, Dogfish, Flying Dog, Goose Island, Great Divide, Indigo Imp, Kona, Left Hand, Maui, Odell, Rouge, Saranac, Sierra Nevada, Sudwerk, Uinta & Victory. The festival runs until the selected beers have gone!
The opening event is sold out, but I think there might be tickets for barbecue on Sunday July 3rd. I’m hoping to head on down towards the end of the week, myself.

Update 29.06.11 The PSBH has posted an update with a stocklist of the beers on offer so far… mouth-watering, no?
