Popular Cumbrian beer purveyors Fell Brewery have debuted a brand new bar in Chorlton, marking the brand’s first Manchester-based venue. Located on Wilbraham Road, this cosy new space officially soft launched on Friday 10 July after a gestation process that was delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The space joins Fell’s two original bars in Penrith and Kendal, and aims to bring a range of Cumbrian brewed beers to the city, alongside a selection of additional drinks cherrypicked by the brewery’s in-house team. Fell’s core range spans golden ales, west coast IPAs, lagers and gritty Northern bitters – as well as a handful of vegan pale ales. The venue currently has 12 keg and 4 cask lines serving their own beers alongside a number of guest brews on-tap. Aiming to showcase a handful of national and international beers, Fell Chorlton also serves a selection of spirits, natural wines and keg and bag-in-a-box ciders. A take out can service will also be on offer for those who want to enjoy Fell’s fare at home.
Speaking to Manchester Wire, the Fell team said: “We chose Manchester as bars in and around Manchester have supported us since we first started brewing in 2013 and we’ve always had good feedback on our beers from the city. We believe Manchester has developed fantastically in recent years with an impressive array of exciting new venues and we think this trend is set to continue, not just in the city but in the surrounding towns and we want to be a part of this emerging new scene.” The Fell Chorlton team have put safety measures in place to ensure a comfortable – and socially distant – experience for new visitors but assure fans that there’s no need to book – with walk-up slots available throughout the week.
