Common & Co launches canalside summertime beer and wine event at KAMPUS

'A Kind Of Summer Beer Thing' is coming to the waterfront for 2021.

The Manc The Manc - 25th June 2021

Common & Co is bringing ‘A Kind of Summer Beer Thing’ event to Kampus next month – hosting a wide selection of beers, wines and soft drinks on the waterfront.

The pop-up event is part of a summer residency at Capital & Centric and HBD’s Kampus development – introducing Common’s concept to residents and neighbours.

From Friday 2 July, ‘Summer Beer Thing’ will settle into the surroundings for a full month – occupying The Bungalow ‘village hall’ area – trading from Thursday to Sunday, midday until late.

Eight rotating taps of the “finest and most sessionable beers” will all be good to go – alongside natural wines, cocktails, softs, and snacks, with support from Salt Beer Factory and Sipsmith Gin. 

Numerous pop-up tastings and weekend DJ sets will take place on the canalside throughout July – with Nell’s Ice Cream Sandwiches also up for grabs.


Tables will be for walk-ins only.

Summer Beer Thing began in 2017 at Sadler’s Yard, with over 1,000 people visiting across the weekend each year.


The Kampus gardens will host the event – sitting alongside the canal and Manchester’s iconic Gay Village. The development will open fully over the next six months, offering residents everything from doggy day care and weekend yoga on the terrace, to pop-up events, bars, restaurants, cafés and retail.

The collection of old and new buildings will also include a private cinema, lounge and dining room and the biggest build-to-rent gym in Manchester.


Common will be opening a new pub, Cornerstone, in the city centre neighbourhood later in the autumn.
