The forgotten drink in the craft beer revolution is set to become the star of its very own festival. We Are Lager, a festival celebrating the amber fizzy tipple, will be turning up at Upper Campfield Market in April aiming to show that lager has more to it once you skip past the Fosters and the Stella. Manchester Union Lager, Manchester’s new lager only brewery, is behind the festival and has invited lager producers from around the world to help throw off the shackles off the lager lout and show the variety in the drink. Plus over 20 breweries from the UK, Europe & USA including Lost & Grounded, Hacker Pschorr, Kona Brewing Co, Lervig, Paulaner, Donzoko, Giepel Brewing, Braybrooke Beer Co, 71 Brewing and Manchester’s own Cloudwater will all showcase numerous styles of lager, with even more to be announced. Bucking the trend of the stereotypical beer festival there will also be an all star DJ line up that wouldn’t look out of place at a summer music festival, curated by Manchester’s longest running club night Funkademia. DJ sets already confirmed from Everything Everything, Luke Unabomber (Electric Chair), Funkademia V Girls on Film, Take Me To Church & Hattie Pearson with more to be announced early 2019.
Thu 4 – Sun 7 Apr, Upper Campfield Market, Manchester, M3 4NN. £8-11 wearelager.com
