There's a new 105-foot, 42-brews bar near Manchester
The Bowland Beer Hall in Clitheroe
There's a new giant bar/brewery near Manchester. Mind you, when I say 'near Manchester', what I mean is it is located in Clitheroe, Lancashire. Dubbed 'the longest bar in the north', this £10-million, 105-foot drinking haven has 42 different beers on tap.
Located inside a 19th century weaving mill, the Bowland Beer Hall is owned by the James Places Group and aside from the 42 beers available, they also have 40 keg lines along with a selection of craft beers (on rotation) produced in the area. The giant mill (opened in 1823) also houses a 400-cover courtyard, an ice cream parlour, a food hall, a 4-screen cinema and a 39-bedroom hotel and that's not the end of it, because a gin distiller and a bistro will be added soon.
Warren Bennet, Commercial Director at James Palace Group, proudly says there are actually "more people employed on the site than when it was a fully functioning weaving mill, well over 200 employees”.
