We are Beatnikz Republic Bar NQ - a small independent craft beer bar in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter. We are the bar/taproom of Beatnikz Republic Brewing Co. (which is less than a mile away) and have 14x keg and 4x cask lines with half dedicated to our own beers and half to guest beers.
We opened the bar 18 months ago and the support we've received has been amazing. We wanted to add something to the already fantastic Manchester beer scene by focusing on beers of quality, variety, experience and flavour; as such, we have had the privilege of pouring beers from some of the best breweries in the world. Our aim has always been to create an inclusive and welcoming environment and our incredible staff have been pivotal in making this happen.
Like everyone, our lives have been affected by the current COVID-19 lockdown and we immediately closed the bar upon instruction from the government. As well as the devastating impact on society and people's physical and mental health, the commercial impact has been unprecedented.
We will get through this challenging period together and we look forward to opening our doors again. Our customers, staff and suppliers have all been brilliant; this small crowdfunding campaign means we means we can give something back to our customers with beer rewards and/or discounts on bar tabs. It also means we will be able to pay suppliers quicker (many of whom are small businesses themselves struggling with cashflow) and help with operational costs.
This crowdfunding campaign will last for either 8 weeks or until it is safe to reopen. We can't wait to open the doors again and see everyone for a beer. Until then, stay safe, be kind to one another and support independents where possible.
