Spring Beer Festival

Spring Beer Festival


Our beer festivals are brilliant, especially when the sun shines.

We have been doing them twice a year since 2007. The first one was put on to showcase the revolution in British brewing. And that’s what we have been celebrating every year since, as the revolution continues to gather pace. There has never been a better time for British beer.... more breweries, more beer styles, more innovation, more flavours, more crazy and exciting ideas. Our beer festivals celebrate that.

Many of the pioneers of the new wave of craft brewing are here in the North of Britain. We choose our breweries and let them show 3 or 4, sometimes more of their beers. It’s not about cramming in as many different beers as possible. It’s about showcasing the breweries, and getting the brewers along. It’s both cask and keg.

The first festival is in late March and the second one in late July. They take over the whole brewery. We have plenty of cellars and a cold conditioning room, so all the beer is properly cold and served from at least 3 bars. In summer we cover a fair bit of the Mill Yard with a marquee and get a bar in there.

It’s a family affair... kids, dogs, babes in arms, great grandmas, all are welcome.

Food all day, live music, great beer, good craic and no tickets – we don’t charge entry.
