The title compound, C18H16N6·2CH3OH, was prepared by the reaction of 5,5′-bis(bromomethyl)-2,2′-bipyridine with imidazole. The main molecule lies on an inversion center located at the mid-point of the C—C bond joining the two pyridine rings. The asymmetric unit therefore contains one half-molecule and one methanol solvent molecule. The dihedral angle between the pyridine and imidazole rings is 72.32 (5)°. In the crystal, weak intermolecular O—H⋯N, C—H⋯N and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds contribute to the stabilization of the packing
