The Bilton area of Harrogate is to get its own beer festival.
The inaugural Bilton Beer Festival will take place on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th September 2013 at Bilton Working Men’s Club and will be raising money for local charity St. Michaels Hospice. The festival will feature beers from local breweries including Daleside, Roosters and WharfeBank and cider from Ampleforth Abbey.
The Bilton Beer Festival opens at 5.00pm on Friday 27th and 4.00pm on Saturday 28th with the closing time being 12.00 on both nights. There will be live entertainment on both evenings from local artists. Both nights will also feature a “Meet the Brewer” session with Craig Witty, head brewer at Daleside Brewery. There will be a raffle on both evenings and a charity auction on the Saturday, all the proceeds of which will go to St Michael’s Hospice.
Bilton Beer Festival tickets cost £10.00 each which includes a souvenir glass and 3 pints of beer. Tickets can be purchased online via the Bilton Beer Festival website or directly from Bilton Working Men’s Club, Skipton Road, Harrogate. Additional pints will cost £2.75 each.
Organiser, Chris Herbert said:
The Bilton Beer Festival should be a really enjoyable occasion with a great selection of beers to enjoy. We’ve thought for a while that Bilton Working Men’s Club would make a great venue for a beer festival and we hope that it will raise a significant amount of money for St. Michael’s Hospice which does amazing work. We’d like to particularly thank our supporters and sponsors for their help in making this happen.
