Fans of the burgeoning Sowerby Bridge ale scene will be delighted to know that Sarah Dixon of the Shepherds Rest is having another summer beer festival. Although a couple of weeks later than last year's, the format will be similar, featuring around fifteen beers, a couple of real ciders, food and live music, with festivities beginning 5pm Friday 6th.

Anyone yet to visit this attractive Ossett Brewery pub should consider a day out in the town, where the Works, the Puzzle Hall and more recently the Jubilee Refreshment Rooms at the railway station can also be sampled. Sowerby Bridge can be reached using a combination of 503 & 574 bus services from Huddersfield. (map)

Sarah has promised us a list of the beers appearing, hopefully early next week.
