Runaway Brewery Tap Room in Manchester

Tap Room

‘Friendly, passionate, knowledgeable, excellent beer’ (Google Local Guide)

We love to share our passion for brewing and have built a tap room in our  brewery so that you can enjoy our beer at its freshest – open every Saturday. 

We also sell bottled beer to take away whenever the brewery is open (usual opening hours 9 – 5pm, Monday – Friday).

Saturday Tap

Open: Every Saturday 12pm – 8pm | Free

We open the doors of our brewery to beer drinkers in Manchester every Saturday. Enjoy a day out with your friends and family and try our beer – direct from the source. Drink the latest specials or enjoy your Runaway favourites, on tap or to take away.

As well as beer, we also have soft drinks from our pals at Steep Soda in the fridges.  Unfortunately, due to the taproom being located inside the brewery, we are unable to accommodate dogs – but, when it’s warm, we do have seating outside where well behaved dogs are most welcome.

Brewery tour and tastings

Our brewer-led tours take you behind the scenes where you can learn more about how our beer is made and taste the latest brews. Our regular tour runs at 12pm every Saturday. We’re happy to arrange private group tours and beer tastings for groups of 10+ people.
