Indy Man Beer Convention 2015 | Victoria Baths Manchester

Indy Man Beer Con is alway a special event and in it’s 4th year it’s constantly evolving and meeting the changing appetites of the attendees. Held at the Victoria Baths in Manchester it is a beer festival featuring a wide range of local, national and international breweries. This year has seen tweaks to the format adding extra capacity using all the available space to the maximum, and allowing the different sponsor partners to really put a stamp on the spaces. Cloudwater Brew Co recreated the relaxed and airy feel of their brewery tap in the pineapple room which previously held the food matching events. With the extended outdoor street food options instead it made sure there was loads of great stuff to pick from, and gave Cloudwater the space to really showcased the wide range they are producing right now.  The Turkish Baths was split into an international room featuring Vertical Brands in the front section pouring Mikkeller, and Galway Bay amongst others, while Northern Monk created a dark abbey feel with their space. Keeping with the tradition of having the brewers and brewery teams serve the beers is perfect for those who needed a little extra help in deciding what to drink, and for the beer geeks an opportunity to have a quick chat and find out more about the stories behind the brews available. It also worked really well pulling all the collaboration beers together on a single bar. This meant it was quick and easy to give all the one off’s created for the IMBC 15 a try or even pick up a 6 pack of them in the take home cans. A extra unique and special feature was the Indy Can Beer Container. Working with We Can Solutions the organisers created the option taking any beer available home. At each bar were empty cans that could be filled and then taken to the canning station for sealing, a great way of using up the remaining tokens or just taking a favourite drink home.

The year that was 2015

It’s always good to look back at the images I’ve shot at the start of a new year and use them as a jumping off point to push me further with the new projects and shoots. So I’ve pulled together below a selection of my favourite images, taking in Editorial, commercial projects as well as personal work. My best of 2015 wedding photography can be found over here

If you want to chat about working together to create images that tell a story or showcase your brand, or just want to talk more about producing some fresh imagery please get in touch here via social media or here.
