What is SpecialBrewsMCR?

SpecialBrewsMCR started when three hungover students decided to avoid writing essays, and write about beer for the student paper instead. After we realised that telling people you are writing an article sometimes gets you free beer, this blog was hastily created. With a motto of ‘bursting beyond the student bubble in search of better beer’ we set out to write about all the great beery things Manchester has to offer, from a student's perspective.


These days, only one of us is Purple And Proud, but we are still out there fighting the good fight, whatever that is. Follow this space for insightful commentary on pubs, bars, breweries and festivals in God's own Manchester.
