It will be worth the wait: renowned craft beer and Gujarati street food venue, Bundobust, is proud to announce the opening of its long-awaited brewery: located in the Grade II-listed St James Building on Manchester’s Oxford Street.
Proceedings commence on Thursday 16 September  at 4pm and what better way to celebrate than with a free pint? The first 200 are being given away gratis (*with the purchase of food).
Adding to Bundobust’s roster of successful venues in Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester, this second Manchester site comes in the form of a 150-seat taproom and restaurant – It’s already well-known for its spot on taste in craft beers and an iconic lineup of collabs with internationally renowned breweries, and Bundobust now has the facility to brew its very own, right on site, with a fully-functioning brewery. From now on at all Bundobust sites you can expect to find exclusive beers with great names such as ‘Kipsy Bhal’, ‘Dhania Pilsner’. ‘East is East’ and ‘West is West’. They are all crafted with the venue’s iconic Gujarati menu in mind, meaning they pair perfectly with its award-winning Indian street food.
Much of Bundobust’s success comes from the combination of great food and drink, but also the venues’ design and attention to detail. In this case, for example, sustainable furniture outfit, Woodmancote Retro has created the brewery’s high tables and stools. The overall design is influenced by US brewpubs, with a nod to German beer hall camaraderie. Each chair is made from 40 recycled plastic water bottles, while school desks have been repurposed into beer hall-style tables.  original features from the space’s previous incarnation as a car park have been maintained, from vintage alarm bells and glazed bricks to ‘Drive Slowly’ signage. A show-stopping giant glass atrium mirrors the Piccadilly branch’s glass apex.
Thu 16 Sep, 4pm, Bundobust,
