Indyman 2015: Manchester 8th-11th Oct

TCC_cask stack stencilled wsiteIndyman, how we love you, let us count the ways (and days – only 1 more to be precise until the 2015 Manchester good-times begin!)

One of our favourite beer and cider events, Peter is already on his way with a very packed cider wagon and many Thistly cohorts to help man the cider bar. We’ll be beside local faves Moss Cider and the Real Cider Co so when you need a break from all that beer, you know where to head.

This year, we’re not just bringing the cider noise, we’ve also got a couple of secrets up our sleeves. So you’ll find plentiful supplies of our core varieties: Original, Traditional, Real Strawberry, Real Elderflower, Whisky Cask (matured in ex-Glen Moray casks), and Real Ginger alongside our Farmhouse Scrumpy Jaggy Thistle, and Slyrs Whisky Cask which is our limited edition Bavarian-Highland collab. And to top it all…

tempest saisonWe have a brand new and very special collaboration with our friends, Tempest Brew Co…

Indyman 2015 will see the launch of a new Saison made with crazy yeast and fermented with a whole lot of apple-juice and oak-cask love.

Coming in at a magnificent 8.4% ABV, it’s going to blow your tastebuds off and leave them begging for more.We’re as excited as you about the big reveal!


Here’s Tempest Doug filling the first Cider Saison Cask. And some sexy shots of their big, shiny new tanks.

Other things we’re particularly looking forward to at IMBC are Squawk with IMBC on an intriguing Fig Stout, getting on down with the immense eats on offer including Karkli’s newest bar snack flavour, and all things Magic Beard.

We’re definitely going to need a lie-down after this one. See you there!

Indyman thistly* We don’t know either but it’s going to be epic!
