Halloween @TheFontChorlton will be scarily good this year! From 12-6 on friday 31st we have treats, games & face-painting for the little monsters & then from 6pm we let the grown-ups take over with DJ’s from 9pm. Our staff will be joining in the spirit of things too by dressing up, so why don’t you? you will get yourself a Free shot on us for your efforts!
On Tues 19th August we will be welcoming Magic Rock Brewery in to The Font, Chorlton to drink & talk us through a fine selection of their craft beers both on cask & keg.
Magic Rock are based in Huddersfield & have been producing sensational beer for the last 3 years being voted “2nd best new brewery in the world” in 2012. On the evening they will be launching a new beer with us. Here’s a little bit about it.
Acrobat: Apricot & Tarragon Saison 6.2%
While the brewery bakes under a blistering summer sun our thoughts turned to that most classic of summer beers; the Saison. Acrobat is our first interpretation of a traditional Saison; dry, fruity and a little spicy with a high carbonation designed to refresh after long days out in the sun. We added Apricot during fermentation to enhance the aromatic esters from the classic Dupont yeast and a little Tarragon in conditioning for a subtle hint of anise. The sun doesn’t shine much in Huddersfield, but when it does, we’re head over heels!
Tickets are available from The Font, Chorlton for £9
It’s that most amazing time of year again & boy have we got a fantastic new menu for you!? Come taste the new concoctions for the first time on THURSDAY AUGUST 7th @TheFontMCR & @FontFallowfield & to sweeten the deal we’ll be offering 2-4-1 on all our new cocktails (between 5-7pm @TheFontMCR / between 8-10pm @FontFallowfield) , see you then x

As anyone who’s paid us a visit will have noticed, we’ve been rocking a messy, under construction, somewhat industrial aesthetic recently. Our sharper Instagram followers may also have noticed a number of cryptic snaps, with the hashtag #ffwatchthisspace, sneaking their way onto our feed. You may be asking yourself what this all means. Well, it’s finally time for answers!
Here @FontFallowfield, we’ve been slinging cocktails and #partyvibes since January 2009. Times change, however, and so must we*. After one last week of fun (and ridiculous, stock-clearing offers), we’ll be opening our doors on Thursday 24th JULY a much harder, better, faster, stronger animal!
This is so much more than just a lick of paint. We’ve been working hard, trying out new things and completely redesigning the main bar area. We’ve installed a bunch of new beer, ale and cider pumps, and our fridges have been rammed with over 65 new bottles of craft beer from all over the world! All of this effort would be for nought, however, if we couldn’t share the results with the people that we love (and those of you who we like ‘just as friends’). Which is why we’d like to cordially invite you to this, The Font Fallowfield’s Grand Re-launch Party!
Hunter S. Thompson said that “Good people drink good beer,” and it’s with that in mind that we’ve carefully chosen our new range. From next week you’ll find Brooklyn, Camden, Erdinger, Lindeboom, Flensburger and Orchid Pig, as well as 2 ever-changing guest crafts. Not sure whether you like any of these? That’s cool – we’re offering 25% off draught beer between 6 and 10pm. Come and try something new; our highly-knowledgeable staff are always willing to make a recommendation. There’s even free food to soak up all of that glorious booze.
*If you got this Doctor Who reference, we love you and you can be our friend.

Kicking off our festival experience this Saturday (17th) a six piece band called ‘Rubber Duck Orchestra’ will be completing their performance (which starts out on a tram!) in Font at 7.30pm. Expect fast pace folk music, which hopes to make people ‘move their limbs in funny ways’. Watch them here to prepare your moves in advance! Afterwards we keep the party moving into the evening with The Satellite State Disko DJs, fantastic.
