Leeds Beer Festival: What is it like?

September 17, 2018

Beer lovers rejoiced again for another year to attend the legendary Leeds International Beer Festival.

The annual event returned to its favourite hot spot in Leeds Town hall on September 6th until Sunday 9th, 2018 as a way to taste the worlds most flavoursome beers. Whether you're a fan of a pale ale, blonde or a flavoured beer than this event is the place for you.

More than 50 brewers attended the seventh edition of the festival - 18 from overseas and 33 from the UK which gave many people attending the brewery filled venue many beers to sample and purchase with tokens. Also for those who felt peckish after a few drinks they were able to venture outside the venue and try some of the areas most popular street food from Bunodust, Little Bao Boy and many more. 

However, amongst the endless amount of pint options and nibbles, the event ensures they capture some elements of culture as the US-themed room contains some of the world most popular arcade machines ranging Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and Street Fighter. Along with that, the cellar section is a great place to unwind whilst sitting on tables amongst fairy lights and trees. On the other hand, if you someone who likes to have a dance each chamber has a range of music playing from different eras which get you moving.

The four-day event is the perfect place to hang out with friends, family or date for the day or evening, as you're able to take the chance to sample a range of beer from across the world - I recommend trying Yeastie Boys coconut flavoured beer or a fruity french blend which contains a touch of cheery if you've got a sweet tooth like me. Also if you're a fan of live music or Viking tales the legendary Thor Tipi has a range of artists appear on stage to entertain you whilst you drink.

The ticket prices range yearly so if this takes your fancy in 2019 book your tickets in advance. To find out more check out the Leeds International Beer Festival Page: http://www.leedsbeer.com/
