Beer Festival News

Real ale festival fans have a bit of multiple choice this coming week. There are showcases in Barnsley and Sheffield whilst Marsden has the Riverhead re-launch next Thursday.
Today sees the start of The Kelham Island Tavern Beer Festival on Russell Street, Sheffield. The multi-award winning pub promises 30 plus new and rare beers over the course of four days, plus a selection of cider and perry. Looks like it starts at noon. I'm hoping to go tomorrow to sample some and to do a review.

Also on Saturday, June 22, from 5pm to 1am  is a celebration of Geeves Brewery's 100th gyle at their brewery tap.
The Summer 100 event at The Anglers' Rest, Wombwell, will highlight the handiwork of father and son team Pete & Harry Geeves. There will also be a selection of guest ales and Yorkshire ciders, and outside bar, food and acoustic music.

The pub is on Park Street, about a mile from Wombwell train station. Catch the 200 bus to the centre of Wombwell and get off at the library stop on Station Road. It's a short walk from there. Alternatively, The Anglers' Rest is well served by the 222 or 226 buses from Barnsley Interchange, which stop right outside.

Next weekend (27th - 29th) The Riverhead Brewery Tap in Marsden is showcasing its own range until closing time on the Saturday. A new beer will also be unveiled.

I suggest you check the dates for the Riverhead event in Marsden. It's not this weekend - it's the following weekend!!!!

Hi Neil, thanks for your comment. I was rushing to put the post on before work this morning and somehow got it into my head that Riverhead started tonight.
Apologies to Riverhead and anyone else concerned.
Thankfully Will corrected my blog post while I was tied up at work. Hopefully everyone is aware of the true date now (June 27-29)
Sorry for my mistake,
Ale Ambler.
