KIrkburton Beer Festival

++++Thanks to those who have queried the price of the beer ..it is £2 a pint, not a half..+++++
This weekend Kirkburton hosts its third beer festival at the Scout Hut on Hallas Rd at Kirkburton,. The event runs on Friday evening and Saturday and a £5 entrance fee, gets you admission, a glass and your first beer. All beer is priced at £2 a half. Courtesy of the 'bloke from Hull' we have obtained a copy of the beer list, should you fancy a trip out. I am a little concerned about the tasting notes for the Haymakers Tipple, wondering what a 'Larger Drinker' is !!!

£2 a half on top of the admission fee!!!! Surely not

What my info said, and I quote '£5 entry includes lucky programme, glass and beer tokens,beer still only £2 a pint'. Maybe you get more than one token. The proceeds go towards Scout Hut repair and restoration fund so I assume they will be wanting to make as much as they can from the event.
