Shepherds Rest Beer Fest

The Shepherds Rest in Sowerby Bridge is the fifth Ossett Pub Company house to host a beer festival, and new(ish) manager Sarah Dixon (formerly to be found behind the Brewers Pride bar in Ossett) should have no trouble making this another successful event. With it's three drinking areas and attractive garden, the pub has plenty of space both for extra beer and live music.

The town itself is gaining a growing reputation for real ale and in addition to the Rest - the Works, the Puzzle Hall and most recently the Jubilee Refreshment Rooms at the railway station (hopefully fully open this weekend) should also be sampled.

No details are available of the festival beers as yet but we will do our best to update you nearer the time. (map)

"The long awaited Jubilee Refreshment Rooms has opened at Sowerby Bridge station. Andrew & Chris Wright have spent a long time sympathetically renovating the listed building, and it is now open and offers 6 handpumped cask beers." Local CAMRA
