First Wave of IMBC Breweries announced

Ah, we’re nearly there now – and with that in mind, we’re proud to kick off the next few weeks of IMBC announcements by revealing the first wave of breweries who’ll be attending the festival.

As ever, we’ve picked the creme de la creme of our favourite beer makers, and this particular batch are the one who’ll be there all weekend long, pouring their freshest and finest by the third. In the coming days, we’ll be giving a day by day breakdown of the Thursday & Friday breweries, and well as those who’ll be there on Saturday & Sunday, plus all the information you’ll need about food options, tastings, and – 0f course – token prices.

So, please welcome to the baths the following breweries:

Cloudwater, Manchester
Wild Beer, Pylle (Shepton Mallet)
Pomona Island, Manchester
Lakes Brew Co, Kendal
Deya, Cheltenham
Zapato, Huddersfield
Thornbridge, Bakewell

…final tickets are available for some sessions, with Friday’s early session having a handful left, Sunday looking similar, and there being fewer than 20 Full Fat (i.e. every session, every day) still up for sale. If you want them, act quick – get them here.

We’ve also got volunteering opportunities left open too, which will get you Beer tokens! Ticket to a session of your choice! Free food during the event! IMBC T-shirt! A good time! Plus a £25 Nell’s Pizza voucher to enjoy afterwards! If you’re free on Saturday night or Sunday, we’d especially like to hear from you – volunteer here.
