Nice place set a side the main road(s). Actually easy to walk by... Anyhow got a tiny little beer garden and upstairs more space. A rather eclectic range of selected beers from all over the world. Price wise it is acceptable but only since it is allowed to also split a pint in half and the price splits into exactly half as well, which is not necessarily usual. Not sure if they serve food, I was too occupied studying the beer menu. Beer is kept well and bar staff is friendly. Loads of beer enthusiasts and a like in here. Excellent place!

Truly fabulous modern place. (Don’t expect an old English pub). One of the few places I’ve ever been without a single wasted taphead - no macrolager for the masses, just 16-20 great casks and kegs. And lots of bottles, too. Youngish, kind of hipster crowd, but with a few old-timers to keep it interesting. Highly recommended.

Great selection of beer and a friendly atmosphere. Pretty crowded on a Friday evening, but we managed to get some seats upstairs. I liked the ambiance better downstairs than upstairs. Anyway the beer is in focus and it is an excellent place for decent beer. Both tap and bottle selection was very good. Fairly central location too. Well worth a visit and I will certainly come back if I go back to Manchester some day.

Visited this pub more than once, and it´s a great pub. Newer modern pub, in 2 floors, great beercelection, both on tap and the huge bottle selection. Both UK and from around the world. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and the beers in good condition. Absolutely wort a re-visit :-)

Has a great selection of beers and ales that cover the entire downstairs bar and none of the regular taps that you see if the majority of pubs up and down the country. The only downside to this are the inflated prices to cover the extra costs of transporting these beers, although the ales are more expensive than other local outlets too and I’ve seen a lot of the same beers at other places for £1-£2 less . The setting is a small building set on three levels in a short terrace row in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The decor makes good spartan use of the building giving it a modern look in an old building. The decor is mainly beer related paraphernalia and seating is on two floors with a beer garden for warmer days.

great selection, all interesting .. prices were a bit high but you got variety .. friendly staff .. nice back patio .. 2 floors .. busy place .. eccentric bottle selection (but pricey) .. easy to get to .. very nice place! .. only drawback is that the bathroom is on the 3rd floor, it takes the wind right out of you..

I had been warned to visit this place during off-peak hours. Luckily, I listened. Even with an upstairs seating area, this pub’s pretty tiny. The ambiance is a little pokey, with plenty of beer-related bric-a-brac. The selection’s indeed quite strong. The keg options offered imports from the likes of Toccalmatto and Schlenkerla. Cask options included stuff from Dark Star and Moor. The bottle list was small, but strong. All 4 Armand seasons were available alongside stuff from Alesmith, Kernel etc. Frankly, the selection looks a lot like Cask Pub & Kitchen’s, and I’d bet they use the same distributor. Unfortunately, the condition of the one cask beer I tried was poor (a total diacetyl bomb). The service was friendly, but they should have noticed the condition of the beer before serving it to me. The value’s quite decent. Overall, while this place is very good, I feel there’s a few ways the pub could be improved a bit. You get no indication that you’re drinking in a Manchester pub when you walk into Port Street. For instance, there’s no local beers available. In its present form, Port Street feels like a craft bar in Manchester, not a craft bar of Manchester. Still, this is a really nice place. If I lived in Manchester, I’m sure I’d visit often.

Good selection of UK, USA, Belgian, Danish. The focus is on ’craft’ modern beers. The prices for keg and bottle are eye watering and borderline offensive only worth a trip if they have something really special on tap.
