MCR is First Chop’s modern take on classic Manchester bitter, brewed originally in 2015 for the Manchester Beer Festival and folded into First Chop’s core range due to its popularity. 

This classic British-style Ale boasts a sweet, toffee and citrus nose against a bitter, creamy and smooth finish. 

MCR has the hearty, full-bodied flavour you come to expect from a robust northern beer but with a subtle hint of florality and citrus giving it a thoroughly modern spin. This is a strong tasting beer that is not too heavy on the alcohol, making it sessionable for ale lovers and easy-drinking for those used to lighter beers. It’s warm, bitter finish makes MCR a great beer for an autumn or winter event. 

MCR is available to order for our mobile craft beer truck hire service in cans which are 330ml and come in cases of 12, you can order as many or as few cases as you’d like.

If you’re interested in stocking MCR at your bar-hire and want to know more about how much to order or what drinks might be good to serve alongside it, be sure to speak to your event organiser or check out some other bitters and winter beers from our list.


First Chop brewing Arm was established in 2012 with a borrowed microbrewery and a passion for great beer. 

They started by brewing around 400 litres a month and within a year, demand had skyrocketed and they needed a brewery of their own to keep up. Fast forward to 2017 and First Chop began operating from their new brewery in Salford, producing more than 80,000 litres of beer a month. 

First Chop believe in making beer for everyone, all their products are vegan and the majority of them are gluten-free as well, with all their tested and certified, gluten-free beers carrying the cross-grain logo. First Chop see no p;ace for gluten in beer so they make sure to remove virtually all the gluten from their beers until the gluten content is below 10PPM (parts per million). This doesn’t make the beer taste any different and is a testament to their stringent quality procedures.

All First Chop’s beers are available to order through our mobile craft beer truck hire service, all are available in cans and many can be ordered on draft as well.
