IMBC 2014 – A short round up

Well that was fun wasn’t it! We’ve just about recovered from six beery sessions in four days and are very much looking forward to next year. We’d like to thank every single one of you who bought a ticket for this year’s event. We welcomed over 4000 people through the doors of the gorgeous Edwardian beauty of Victoria Baths, we really hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did.

We are always looking to develop our ideas and your feedback so far has given a great insight in to how we can make next year’s festival even better (mainly more loos and water!). We did have a couple of tiny issues, we are only human, but if you have any suggestions on what we can do to make your next IMBC experience even better please email [email protected] with your comments.

Some of you may have noticed that we have a donation scheme to help Victoria Baths with their ongoing regeneration project. You can send any unwanted tokens to : Victoria Baths Donation Scheme, Port Street Beer House, Manchester M1 2EQ, OR drop them in person to Port Street Beer House.

We’d like to thank this year’s partners, Thornbridge, Summer Wine Brewery, Magic Rock, Beavertown, BrewDog, Glassworks and CityLife, the amazing volunteers and supervisors from Common, PSBH and The Beagle who helped us set up and run the sessions themselves, the brewers that came from near and far to serve their beer, the brilliant Victoria Baths staff and volunteers that let us use their wondrous building, Hey! Manchester and Aficionado for curating the music and of course thank the musicians themselves, as well as the food traders and Jackie Kearney for helping soak up that wondrous beverage, food pairing or not. But most of all we would like to thank you for reading this and supporting us in this thing we do that we call IndyManBeerCon.

See you all soon – TEAM IMBC
