Surplus! (hosted by Open Kitchen MCR)

Waste food social enterprise Open Kitchen MCR (formerly Real Junk Food Manchester) has partnered with local independent brewer Beer Nouveau to create SURPLUS, a range of unique beers using a host of fresh ingredients that would otherwise have gone to waste! And to celebrate, we thought we might partner this new range of unique and beautiful beers with a range of small plates / amazing hot snacks / sexy food stuffs, also made from waste food, and make a bit of a night of it.
Join us on the 2nd Friday of every month (hopefully getting more regular as we go along!) for great food and fab beer, all with an eco twist! Stamping out food waste, feeding bellies not bins, and getting a little bit tipsy in the process.

Beer Served from 4pm – 10.30pm, food served from 5.30pm until we run out (usually wrapping up around 8.30pm).

Eventbrite ticket not essential, but very much appreciated, as it helps us to know how many people are coming, so we can plan our food prep, and REDUCE FOOD WASTE (which is our entire mission, so please help us).

All small plates £5. Proceeds go to support our community work providing hot nutritious meals to people who are having a hard time in this incredibly crappy economy. Let’s all look after each other.
