Horsforth Brewery is launching a new beer to celebrate its sixth anniversary, 500th brew and Leeds Pride.
On Friday, 4 August, the brewery’s celebration coincides with Leeds Pride Parade – a vibrant celebration of LGBTQIA+ communities.
Supa Fruity beer is the brewery’s 500th brew and is produced in collaboration with Trans Leeds.
Trans Leeds is a local charity dedicated to supporting the Transgender, Non-Binary, and Gender Expansive Community in and around Leeds.
This 6% fruited sour with apricot, strawberry and raspberry shall be available in limited-edition cans at Horsforth Brewery taproom and selected retailers across Leeds and West Yorkshire.
“On our sixth birthday, we were set to launch our 500th brew, which also happened to fall on the pride weekend,” said Mark Costello, the owner and founder of Horsforth Brewery. “We had to brew something special.”
Horsforth Brewery is on the path of crafting inclusivity. It has been decided that all the profits earned from Supa Fruity beer shall be donated to Trans Leeds.
“We are proud of the taproom being seen as a safe space so it was a natural choice to support an LGBTQ+ charity for the occasion,” Mark added.
Calverley Parish Church is inviting parishioners to join them for Prayers with Pride on Sunday 5 August, from 5pm. Full details below:
