Ales ahoy as festival sets sail for city

Pirates swashbuckling their stuff? Ales maturing on board a fishing boat in the north sea? Just why has land-locked Manchester come over all sea-faring for the sake of a drink? Because next week the city will be host to the National Winter Ales Festival that’s why.
Yes, the annual festival of all things beery gets underway next week and, as well as the hundreds of beers to taste, expect some piracy of the high seas variety and more.
I spoke to three people getting ready for the big date in the beer calender – organiser Graham Donning, the man who helps pick all the beers Kim Calloway and brewer Martin Dickie from Brewdog who explained why some of his beer is currently all at sea.
You can listen to the interviews with this short podcast.
