We're approaching the season when beer festivals come so thick and fast that heartbreaking decisions have to be made about which to attend and which to miss. It can often involve some tough choices, especially so now with many having to cut their beer budget back significantly - but one swilling extravaganza that just can't be ignored here in Huddersfield is the annual Oktoberfest.
The town's premier beer festival gets under way this evening to be quickly followed by an onslaught of pub and club events through the autumn. A hectic couple of months will see beer bashes in Batley and Brighouse, emasculating inebriety in Elland and 'Ebden Bridge, some falling down in Folly Hall and I'll doubtless be going crackers in Crimble!
Keep up to date with all these festivals using the calendar in the sidebar and make the most of the best beer season of the year!
