Craft beer micro-chain The Epicurean has opened its third store in South Manchester on Manchester Road, Chorlton.

The Epicurean was established in West Didsbury in 2014 by craft beer connoisseur Simon Yarwood with a mission statement “to deliver the best and most varied range of UK and global craft beers”.

After opening a second store in Heaton Moor in 2018 and winning a raft of awards, the success of The Epicurean is widely attributed to Yarwood’s passion for craft beer.

Opening a third store in Chorlton was always part of the plan, the company said.

Yarwood said: “It was an absolute no-brainer. Craft beer has been a huge part of the Chorlton drinking and dining scene for years but until now there hasn’t been a dedicated retail outlet for craft beer drinkers. We’re hoping to fill that gap and really establish ourselves as part of Chorlton’s independent community. Also it’ll save people the trip to West Didsbury!”

The Epicurean Chorlton is open for customer visits now as are the West Didsbury and Heaton Moor stores. Over the last few months The Epicurean increased its delivery capacity and orders can be made online for local and national deliveries at
