Huddersfield Beer Festival, 2015

A taste of Bavaria came to town as Huddersfield CAMRA’s annual Oktoberfest returned. Around 75 real ales and 20 ciders was on offer at the group’s beer, cider and perry festival, which ran from the 1st to 3rd October.

The German-style festival, held at the APNA Venue Leisure Centre in Spring Grove Street, raised money for the Huddersfield and District Army Veterans Association. Founded in 1897, it is the second oldest uniformed veterans assocation after the Chelsea Pensioners, and formed the guard of honour for Queen Elizabeth’s visit to Huddersfield in 2007.

The festival will include brews from Huddersfield microbreweries, as well as commemorative bottles of beer from Empire Brewing. October is also CAMRA’s Cider Month — and a specialist bar will showcase local ciders and perries from local breweries including Pure North and Uddersorchard.

The three-day event also sold merchandise from its Breweriana stall, such as pump clips, beer mats, beer labels, bottles, bottle openers, glasses, bar towels, trays, T-shirts and more.
