Set up by a group of local, craft beer-loving dads, the pop-up only sells drinks made in Manchester.
A group of local, craft beer-loving dads are transforming Withington’s empty Public Hall Institute into a pop-up pub this weekend.
Neill Woodward, Casey Longden, Mark Brennan and Ed Wellard all became friends after their children started going to St Paul’s Primary School and set up The Lock Inn in an effort to bring their local community together.
They form the core of a larger team helping to run the events – buying all the beer independently from local Manchester brewers, finding out what’s been brewed that week and getting their hands on the freshest kegs going.
“We love Withington and we love the Manchester beer scene,” said Ed.
