If you read the sidebar on the blog, you will have noticed that this weekend Huddersfield drinkers are in for a treat or two.
Hall Bower club are having their beer festival on Saturday and Sunday. Although, not the easiest place to reach, it is well worth the effort if their previous festivals have been anything to go by. Go on, get up there and enjoy what's on offer.
Before you venture out into the wilds it should be worth your while to spend a little time in St. George's Square checking out the food & drink festival. Here you should find upwards of 30 stalls all promoting local products, from cheese to curry, from ostrich to venison, from fish to fowl. In addition, and possibly of more interest to our readers, are the real ale bars.
This year they have increased to four, with stalls from The Star, The Sportsman, Elland Brewery and the Nook, so hopefully there should be something there for everyone. Come along and see what is on, I am sure you won't be disappointed. And don't forget to do the 'Ale Trail' around the pubs, visit eight pubs, have a beer and get your programme stamped and claim your free glass. This has been extremely popular during the fortnight it's been running and looks set to become a permanent feature.
The festival runs from Thursday through till Sunday so there is plenty of time to sample everything and fit Hall Bower in as well.
