Wharf Chambers Beer Festival
September 19, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - September 20, 2014 @ 11:55 pm£4.00
Wharf Chambers Co-operative Club is proud to announce the return of its beer festival, showcasing some of the best in Yorkshire breweries.
A hit in last year’s heatwave, the event is going ahead on 19-20th September at the club on Wharf Street, Leeds offering a selection of 25 beers across the spectrum.
“We are bringing back some of the champion beers of last year,” said organiser Jay Callaghan, “and exploring some of the exciting offerings from breweries we did not have a chance to include then.”
Jay spoke of what motivated them: “We just wanted to introduce people to the amazing selection of beers that are being produced in and around Leeds, and let people know the incredible range of tastes and styles that are available. Keep it simple and let the beer talk for itself.”
Among those returning are last year’s favourite, the award winning Golden Salamander from Bradford, along with new offerings from the likes of other favourites Brass Castle, Marble and Two Roses. The festival is also including beers from in and around York, such as the Great Yorkshire, Rudgate, Harrograte Breweries as well as the York Brewery itself, with a few from further afield such as Wold Top from outside Scarborough. In addition to casks there will also be a selection of keg beers from Golden Owl, Northern Monk and Brass Castle.
“Last year we focused on the west and south of Leeds, so this year we looked more north and east, but the selection is just as fantastic there. Choosing was difficult.”
The Leeds/Bradford area itself is well represented with selections from the like of Wharfe Bank, Northern Monk, Ridgeside, Ilkley, Saltaire, Golden Owl and Kirkstall.There will be over twenty casks and several kegs in the selection with cider lovers also being catered for.
Entrance will cost £4, which includes a free half pint and commemorative glass. All beers and food will be suitable for vegans so everyone can get stuck in and DJs from Norman Records will be playing choice tracks all through the event. Last year’s event was a sell-out success for the members’ club, with over three hundred people enjoying local acoustic music and home-made food that brought this alternative venue to new audiences. There are no membership restrictions for the beer festival with whole event being open to all.
