A Bloke from Hull has been in touch to tell us about some forthcoming beer festivals.
The lists he sent were impressive, ranging from local to far flung and from now until August.
I'll just pick a few out that caught my eye.
White Cross Inn beer festival, Bradley Road, Bradley Huddersfield. February 13 to 15. Thursday and Friday sessions 6pm to 11pm, Saturday noon to 11pm.
The following week is The National Winter Ales Festival, which has now moved from Manchester to Derby. It's at The Roundhouse, Pride Park, near Derby Rail Station, from February 19-22. Wednesday's session is from 4pm to 11pm. It's 11am to 11am for the rest of the event but please note some days are split into two sessions.
The event overlaps Bradford Beer Festival (February 20-22) at Victoria Road, Saltaire, and a charity beer festival at Ossett Town Hall (Friday and Saturday evenings, 7pm to 12am) which is run buy Denby Dale District Lions Club (February 21-22).
Into March we have SIBA Beer X (March 12-15) at Ice Sheffield, which coincides with Leeds CAMRA Beer Festival at Pudsey Civic Hall (March 13-15).
Also on that weekend is another event run by the busy Denby Dale Lions. This time they are back on home soil at The Pie Hall on Wakefield Road (March 14-15).
I'll round this off with one of my favourites: The Star Inn's Spring Beer Festival. This five-day pub festival runs from 5pm Wednesday, March 19 to closing time on Sunday, March 23 at Folly Hall, Huddersfield.
If that's whetted your beer appetite then wait until you see the April list!
