Beer we go: Dates set for fourth Horsforth Brewery Beer Festival

All set for Horsforth Beer Festival?

Horsforth Brewery will be hosting its fourth beer festival over the August Bank Holiday weekend featuring a wide range of beers.

The event — which spans three days from Friday 25 to Sunday 27 August – will include beers from Horsforth Brewery’s own range, ginger beer specialists DMC, The Meanwood Brewery, Grumpy Jon’s Cider and Docks Beers.

Guiseley-based bottle shop The Hoptimist who will be bringing a selection of the best beers including Trillium, Parish Brewing and 450 North.

“We absolutely love hosting our beer festivals. It’s a great opportunity for local breweries to showcase their products in Horsforth and to bring beer into Horsforth that’s not normally available.” said Mark Costello, owner of Horsforth Brewery.

Alongside their usual wide range of beers Horsforth Brewery will be brewing up some new beers from its ‘IconSeries’ – a range of beers brewed by the staff of the brewery, each of whom has created their own unique recipe. The series is a celebration of the creativity and passion of the team, showcasing their favourite beer styles from hoppy IPAs to Imperial Stouts, and was launched earlier in the year for their Easter beer festival.

The festival

There will be four sessions for the festival – Friday evening, Saturday afternoon and evening and Sunday afternoon.

Due to the cost of living crisis, the festival has an eye on keeping costs for attendees down and is offering two types of tickets – one which gets you a glass to use at the festival and take home. If you’ve attended a previous Horsforth Brewery festival you can bring your own glass and in return for the entrance price receive two tokens for a half pint each.

“We know times are hard for so many people right now and want to make it easier for people to attend the festival,” added Mark. “We also know that people’s glass cupboards are probably bursting from the amount of festival glasses they’ll have accumulated over the years, I know mine is, so if they’d rather bring one of the glasses from one of our previous festivals we’re delighted to accommodate that.”

Under-18s are welcome to attend when accompanied with responsible adults but must leave the premises by 9:00pm.

As well as beers from the visiting breweries, there will be live music on the Friday and Saturday sessions and pizza pop-up legends Meanwood Pizza will be providing the food.
