2014 Beers

2015 Beers to be announced shortly

We are delighted that once again in 2014 we have the support of our good friends Phil and Ian at Brass Castle brewery to help us select and source this years find cask and keg ales.

Jamie Hawksworth from the very successful Pivovar (you know Euston Tap, York Tap, Pivni York....) is onboard again to help select and source our craft Lagers.

Following on from the success of 2013, where we sourced a good number of our beers from Scotland, the north and south east of England, this year we're going to theme it again, keeping it local and finding all our beers from within God's Own County (that's Yorkshire!).

So the briefs have been passed over to Phil, Ian and Jamie, yorkshire beers and a good selection of craft and continental lager.  Away you go chaps!

Do you have a favourite Yorkshire ale which you would like to see us serve at the Pocktoberfest?  Why not let us know via our contact page, facebook or twitter, we might just be able to oblige!

Keep an eye on this page and our social media for more info on this years beers!
