Yankeefest (2nd-5th May)

It's all things U.S. at Cluntergate in Horbury this weekend as The Cricketers Arms turns it's attention to the colonies and beyond.

Missing most of the pubs special events in the three and half years since reincarnation has been unforgivable considering my proximity, but to have this one pass me by would be verging on treachery considering my heritage.

Reading the press release it was apparent that a good deal of preparation, organisation and not a small amount of imagination has gone into Yankeefest.

Additional bar space in the front room
From the converted yellow school bus in the car park (arriving at 3pm this afternoon and serving fast food throughout), to the comprehensive beer list offering a good range of cask, keg and bottles, this has been a well conceived and executed festival. 

Some bloke from Hull is always first through the door!
'Must try' beers discovered so far include Flying Dog's amazing Mango Habanero and the very 'moreish' All Day IPA from Founders of Michigan.

For opening times and the full lowdown, including a live music schedule, please see the earlier post or the pub's flyer on our Facebook page.
