Real Ale lovers celebrate Yorkshire weekend


By Anders Anglesey

The pumps and glasses are being polished as the Yarnbury Beer festival gets ready to welcome around 2,000 people over the weekend.

The festival, now in its fifth year, will be showcasing a wide range of beers and ciders from all across the region.

The festival has been organised to celebrate Yorkshire Day on August 1, which celebrates the unique identity of the region.

Beer selector, Luke Cluderay, told Yorkshire Voice that the weekend would be a fantastic opportunity to get people from the area involved in celebrating the county’s special day.

He said: “Sadly people often forget when Yorkshire Day is. When Yorkshire folk get together, have a few beers and have a chin wag, there’s nothing better than that.”

Over the next few days, Yarnbury Beer Festival, based at the Yarnbury Rugby Club, is expecting more than 2,000 people to come through its doors, sit down and have a pint.

The festival supports the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and will run until Sunday August 3.
