Sportsmans 3rd Anniversary

It can't be just three years since the Sportsman came on the Huddersfield Real Ale scene, seems it has been around for ever, successfully cemented its place in the must visit pubs on the town circuit with an interesting selection of beers, good food, and on site brewery. This weekend the pub is having a celebration. 

It starts on Thursday evening and £10 treats you to a meet the brewer night with Mallinsons and Outstanding representing beer and Pure North cider makers. Your money pays for three sample ciders, six sample beers and one of their famous suppers. The fun starts at 7pm.

Friday promises food, drinks and dancing, along with their presentation from local CAMRA for pub of the year - a great achievement.

On Saturday there will be four birthday beers on the bar from various different breweries, and an evening barbeque with 'Mad Jack and the Hatters' playing at 9pm.

Finally the event closes on Sunday with Morris Dancing, a brass band and the showing of  the films 'Kes' and 'Brassed Off'!

It promises to be a great weekend, get down there and help them celebrate in style.

Tim - this just isn't good enough. If you had posted details of this earlier, I would have made the effort to take a few days off and get down for the Thursday night do!!! As it is, I'm travelling down to York for the Slip Inn Spring Festival on Saturday, and will now try and get over to Huddersfield first and visit the Sportsman. Tell Sam I'll be after a cellar run!!

Sorry Neil...I accept your comments, but try to leave festivals till the week before. I know it does not help you planning in advance but if we post things too early they tend to get overlooked nearer the time. I have missed festivals I have posted myself because of this. It will be good to see you in Gods Own county again this weekend should you make it.
