WHO ARE WE & WHAT ARE WE DOING?
We, Beatnikz Republic, are a small brewery based in the Green Quarter, Manchester, and have been making flavoursome beers for just over a year. We're thrilled that we're now opening our very own bar in the vibrant Northern Quarter. This newly refurbished 1,500 sq ft unit is set within a beautiful Grade II listed building on Dale Street - less than a mile from the brewery.
Our bar will have 14x keg lines and 4x cask lines (50% our beers and 50% guest beers) as well as a selection of the latest release cans and rare bottles/sharers. We aim to create an inclusive environment where people can enjoy their favourite drinks. As such, we'll be curating cider, wine, spirits and cocktail lists with as much passion as we do when choosing our beers. We'll be be stocking a selection of house wines and sparkling wines, along with a rotating offering of natural, organic and orange wines (trust us, orange wine is utterly phenomenal and everyone needs it in their life!). We couldn't be more passionate about spirits, especially gins, bourbons and tequila/mezcal, and we will be creating seasonal spirit mixer cocktails. We're currently in the process of sourcing bar snacks, including plenty of vegan options.
EVENTS & REWARDS
We plan to hold LOTS of events, including meet the brewers, tap takeovers and food/drink pairing events (beer & doughnut pairing again, anyone??!!). Our regular hours will be 4pm - 11pm Monday - Thursday, 12 noon - 1am Friday & Saturday and 12 noon - 11pm Sunday.
This crowdfunding campaign is aimed at rewarding the people that support us in our first steps into the world of bar operating. Other breweries have taken these first steps before and have successfully become an integral part of the city. We sincerely hope to emulate these breweries whilst trying to create a unique experience that adds to Manchester's brilliant nightlife and beer scene. The rewards include generous bar tabs, brewery branded merchandise as well as brewery experience days where you can help brew beer that will be served in the bar.
WHEN WILL THE BAR BE READY?
As with all construction/redesign projects, there is an element of unpredictability regarding timings. We plan to open our bar in early September, but it may be earlier or it may be later. We have acquired the lease of the unit and the bar will be going ahead so all the pledges made will count; this isn't a funding exercise to get the project off the ground - the bar will be opening and we already have our premises licence as well as plans approved by building control. This crowfunding campaign really is to give something back to our early supporters.
So, go check out the rewards, pick the one that's best for you and we'll see you at the bar!!
