The Sportsman in Huddersfield is to celebrate its fifth anniversary in fine style.
The St John's Road pub is hosting a series of events from April 24-26.
There will also be special birthday beers from local brewers to mark the anniversary of the pub, which has won a stack of local CAMRA awards in a short space of time. 
One ale that caught my eye was from The Sair Inn, which traditionally keeps hold of its Linfit ales up that steep hill in Linthwaite.
Here are the full details, courtesy of our intrepid news gatherer, The Bloke from Hull:
5 YEARS!! Worthy of one hell of a celebratory weekend!! Not one to miss, "HERE'S TO 5 MORE!"
Thursday 24th April - Tapas with a Yorkshire twist 5-9pm.
Friday 25th - Tapas with a Yorkshire twist 5-9pm. Live music at 8:30pm from Yorkshire based klezmer & Balkan band, Klonk.
