Brewers have lots of cheer for festival fans
PUB-GOERS will be able to enjoy a selection of 15 beers from independent British craft brewers during a 12 day festival at a Middleton pub.
The festival is taking place at The Harbord Harbord in Long Street from Wednesday, October 10 to Sunday, October 21.
Each of the brewers is a member of SIBA – the organisation that promotes small independent brewers and their beers.
Among the beers on offer are those brewed exclusively for the festival as well as award-winners.
The beers include Blueberry Classic Bitter (Coach House), Jurassic Dark (Dorset), Jemima’s Pitchfork (Glamorgan), Freddy Brewger (Robinsons), Hope and Glory (Brentwood), Hop Twister (Salopian), Big Job (St Austell) and Wheel of Fortune (Castle Rock).
In addition the pub will serve five UK produced ciders.
All beers and ciders are £1.99 a pint.
The ciders include Toffee Apple (Mr Whitehead’s), Legbender (Rich’s) and Premium Perry (Broadoak).
Customers will be able to sample any three of the real ales or ciders in special third-of-a-pint glasses for the price of a pint.
Pub manager James Cook said: “The festival is the perfect opportunity to showcase the wonderful range of beers from independent British craft brewers.
“It will give people the opportunity to enjoy a superb selection of the beers that they brew, many of which have not been served in the pub before.
“The festival promises to be great fun and I am certain that my customers will enjoy themselves.”
