Everything in one place!

Beverley’s Real Ale Festival and Food Festival are teaming up to bring the local community a weekend long event.

The Beverley Real Ale Festival takes places between the 2nd and 4th of October with the Food Festival taking place on the 4th between 10AM and 4PM.

The Real Ale Festival will be made up of five different sessions, being broken down into afternoon and evening sessions.

The sessions will all include ales from local brewers such as Great Newsome Brewery, Wold Top, and Lillys Cider. There will be live music from regional acts at both evening sessions as well as the Saturday afternoon.

The Food Festival is now in its tenth year will have over 100 stalls from local providers. The event will be opened by the town mayor and guests from BBC Humberside.

BBC Humberside will be hosting a ‘Ready Steady Cook Challenge’ as part of the food festival.

Throughout the day there will be local chefs giving cookery demonstrations. Names confirmed are Ben Cox, Matthew Barker, James MacKenzie, Tina Cerutti, James Robinson, Jason Rowe, David Norwell and Thiery Condette.

As part of the collaboration between Beverley’s Real Ale Festival and Food Festival organisers have teamed up with Great Newsome Brewery and Jones Pies to give the public the opportunity to name and create this year’s official ale and food festival beer.

The winner of the competition will work with the team at Great Newsome brewery and get to work with designers to create the beers signature look.

Matthew from Great Newsome brewery commented:

“As a local business that has had a long association with both the Beverley Food Festival and the Beverley Real Ale and Cider Festival, we are very excited in giving someone the opportunity to work with us on brewing a unique festival ale.

An imaginative name and a creative beer style is what we are looking for and I will be looking forward to welcoming the winner to the brewery to help brew it.”
