Beer & Music Festival – Update

In past years we have had special beers specifically brewed for the Festival and this year is no exception. We will have beers brewed specially for the event from Kirkstall, Ossett and Timothy Taylor’s breweries, and these include:

  • Kirkstall – ‘Worth Valley Pilsner’ (ABV tba) – a cask conditioned Pilsner lager
  • Ossett ‘Express’ (4.3%) – a spicy golden bitter
  • Timothy Taylor’s ‘KWVR 150th Anniversary Ale’ (5.3%) – a strong English ale based on a brown ale, with a real depth of flavour.
