BBC Manchester Opens Today!

We are happy to announce that the British Beer Company Manchester is officially open for business, beginning today! Sarah and I were in Manchester twice over the past few weeks, and saw the building making its transition from a Chilli's to the new BBC, and it was looking great! Well, they are officially open starting today.

If you have not been to a British Beer Company, you probably don't live in Massachusetts. Either that, or you haven't found a reason to visit one. Well, each British Beer Company boasts an impressive selection of great regional and national craft beer on draft - usually well over 20 taps, not to mention an even more extensive selection of bottles. They also tend to have some great beer available on cask.

Besides the great selection of beer, they also have a plethora of food items for you to order. Their food is consistent and is delicious! Manchester is in store for another great restaurant on South Willow Street.

Here is the official press release from BBC:

What: British Beer Company to open in Manchester, NH
Where: 1071 South Willow Street
When: June 4th, 2012
Why: 38 tap lines, 70 bottled and canned beers, 1 cask

The British are coming to Manchester, New Hampshire! June 4th 2012.

In Great Britain, Ireland and across Europe, the pub or “local” is the center of town life: a place to relax, refuel the body and spirit, share news and be entertained. The British Beer Company is excited to bring this same atmosphere and service to the American city of Manchester. The BBC is very serious about its pub culture - the bar and restaurant has to be as comfortable as strolling into a best friend’s living room. Pubs and taverns of yore are where patrons sought refuge traversing the English countryside, and where the seeds of the American Revolution took hold…thankfully, the BBC has superior libations and much loftier fare than the pubs of 1812.

The BBC offers an eclectic menu, an unparalleled beer selection from around New England and the world, vivacious cocktails, hand selected wines and a wide array of live entertainment. Customers will be able to settle in to one of the snugs (a private cozy booth) and enjoy a traditional flaky Pasty Pie (chicken and leek perhaps), Bangers and Mash (over bubble and squeak) or maybe a freshly baked pizza (traditional, gluten free or with multi grain dough).

Founded and based in New England with ten locations in Massachusetts, the BBC recently moved into the state of Rhode Island in Bristol - making Manchester the third state and the twelfth pub to open since being founded in 1997. Each location has a unique vibe and personality all its own, yet shares its best features with its other siblings – for example; the carefully crafted mahogany bars from the UK and the fact that there’s never a cover charge for live music. The BBC Manchester boasts 38 revolving tap lines of imported brews and specialty craft beers, 70 bottled and canned beers and a rotating line-up of cask conditioned ale. Unique lunch and dinner specials created by our executive chef James Gibney of Essex England are available daily (a couple weeks after the opening).

Whether it’s a business lunch, an after work get-together, a family dinner in friendly surroundings or a late night soirĂ©e fueled by great music over pints with friends…the BBC is destined to be Manchester’s newest local.

The official Grand Opening Party will take place on Saturday June 16th and will feature a live performance by Beatles tribute band Walrus Gumboot.

As another Braintree resident and homebrewer, while it's nice seeing the "BBC" expanding, I wish they would focus on the South Shore. I've emailed them several times regarding opening Braintree/Quincy/Weymouth area location. Told them while Pembroke and Walpole aren't far, lot of people from our area of the South Shore are not going to go to those places and try a lot of beers and then drive home.

So here's hoping their next announced location is a local one!
