Real Ale on the UP!
Real ale is on the up – micro breweries are springing up all over the UK, nowhere more so than in Yorkshire. Every small town seems to have it’s own brewery producing everything from pale ales to dark porters.
Ossett, Salamander, Daleside, Rooster’s, Leeds Brewery, Wharfbank, Saltaire, Wendworth, Copper Dragon, York Brewery, Acorn, Goose Eye, Bradfield, Kelham Island and Ilkley… just a few to look out for if you’re after a great pint.
Celebrate in Style
We went to celebrate the UK’s finest ales at the Bradford Beer festival – again taking place in the magnificent Victoria Hall in Saltaire, just a few miles outside Bradford.
The goal of these photos was to capture the enjoyment of the event. People who attend are no a varied bunch, from the very young to the very old.
All the beer pourer’s are unpaid volunteers – the “games makers” in 2012 Olympics parlance!
Here they are… in reverse chronological order!
