Taproom, Beer Garden & Bottle Shop

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

Runaway Brewery Taproom and Beer Garden

Beer Garden open: Friday 5pm-9pm and Saturday 12pm-8pm

We open the doors to beer drinkers in Manchester every Friday night and Saturday. We love to share our passion for brewing and have built a Taproom (closed due to Covid) and Beer Garden (open) so you can enjoy our beer at its freshest.

As well as beer, we have soft drinks from our friends at Steep Soda in the fridges. Food is available from our pals at Honest Crust Sourdough Pizza who will be with us from mid-April to mid-June 2021.

Our Beer Garden is a Covid Secure venue and we welcome groups of up to 6 people. We kindly ask you to follow the guidelines and as such, groups may not split across multiple tables. We do make space for walk ups but would advise you book in advance to guarantee your spot. 

Check out our Plan Your Visit page for details of how we are currently operating.

     Brewery Beer Garden Night Time 

    Table bookings for our Brewery Beer Garden are each allocated a 2 hour time slot. Although we do offer  some pop-up parasols and gazebos, the seating is outdoors, so please check the weather forecast and come prepared. 

    We are unable to accommodate dogs inside the Taproom. Well behaved dogs are most welcome in the Beer Garden.
