Son of rock icon opens bar under Manc Way flyover

The Beavertown Brewery has unveiled a brand new bar below the Mancunian Way flyover on Oxford Road. Now a resident of the Hatch development, the bar is open to businesses selling classic Neck Oil brewery IPAs, Gamma Ray and Bones session lager.

There are also cans of the Nanobot Brewery’s low-alcohol session beer, Heavy Gravity, and other new releases in rotation that will be hitting fridges in the coming months. The bar is made from one of the shipping containers used at the Hatch site and is installed at the rear of the development.

Beavertown is of course founded by Logan Plant, son of British rock icon Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin. Plant founded the brewery in 2011 in Haggerston, east London, with its distinctive artwork and focus on IPA-style beers quickly making it a hit with craft beer enthusiasts.

Then in 2018 it was announced that brewing giant Heineken had bought almost half of the business, enabling it to build a new brewery in Tottenham, north London, and massively increase production. He even now has a bar and microbrewery inside the Tottenham Hotspur grounds.

Nick Dwyer, Creative Director of Beavertown Brewery, said: “Our initial philosophy of everything that looks as good as good, and vice versa, has evolved over time to cover everything from experiences to venues to by brick walls and shipping containers.



Beavertown’s artwork is everywhere

“Our biggest illustration invasion yet, Hatch is the perfect opportunity to take Beavertown through every sense imaginable, with our amazing beers in the bars, our signature visually adorning every wall and hopefully the people are having a blast.”

Inside, the bar’s decor is plastered floor-to-ceiling with this famous Beavertown artwork, and it’s open Wednesday through Sunday from 5 p.m. Food from the site’s many food outlets – from Parmogeddon to new traders like Indian Cheeky Tikka – can also be ordered from the bar.
