Our all-malt amber bitter was first brewed in 1828 to satisfy thirsty Mancunians grafting in the workshop of the world. It soon became our most popular beer, and it’s stayed that way. We make it using ale and crystal malt, and Golding hops, for a satisfying flavour and citrus aftertaste that’s rewarded Mancunian graft for generations.

Tony Wilson once said: “This is Manchester, we do things differently here”. And he was right. Our refreshingly Mancunian pale ale gives ale lovers a similar hop-packed offering to its American equivalents. It’s a golden ale that’s made entirely from all-British malt, Liberty and Mount Hood hops. It’s a post-industrial Manchester classic (as Wilson might have put it).

Our Original Lager recipe, nice and simple for a crisp, light taste. Brewed using only British malts, we use plenty of Styrian and Saaz hops and no additives. This makes sure it’s got just the right enticing happiness and depth when it reaches the glass.

Another one of our residents is Manchester Craft! More than a few craft lagers are named after the cities that created them, so we’ve added Manchester to that list using almost two centuries’ worth of expertise on craft ale. We brew Manchester Craft Lager in small batches, giving it longer maturation to create a stronger, more flavoured lager that takes things up a notch or two.

To make the best beer we could, we travelled the world to find the very best it had to offer. And nearly 130 years later, San Miguel Especial is testament to that journey. A premium pilsner style lager, golden in colour and sparkling, with a generous white creamy head and citrus aroma, San Miguel Especial perfectly balances bitterness to deliver full bodied beer with a clean, crisp and refreshing taste

The finish is balanced, with a hint of cereal and hops. | ALCOHOL – 5%

At Carlsberg, the pursuit of better beer is in our DNA. More than 100 years after our founder J.C.

Our perfectly balanced Danish Pilsner is wonderfully crisp and refreshing, with a full flavour and a distinctive hoppy aroma. Skål!
