JUST a reminder that life goes on every Saturday at Alphabet Brewing Co after the departure of the GRUB food fair folk. Their own Brew Tap and Food Yard is into Week 2, featuring street food vendors Diamond Dogs, Burnt Onion and, a new one to us, Polish kitchen Olo purveying home-made dumplings (pictured above), alongside – they need no introduction –Almost Famous. Ditto Pasta Paul on the decks and a beer line-up featuring Charlie Don’t Surf (summer wheat beer, alc 3.5%), Back Yard pale ale, alc 4.1%), Flat White (white breakfast stout, alc 7.8%) and Hoi Polloi (pilsner, alc 4.8%).
Sat May 13, Alphabet Brewing Co, 99 North Western Street, Manchester, M12 6JL. 12pm – 10pm, www.facebook.com. Dogs welcome and, until 8pm, children. Free admission.
