The next Huddersfield CAMRA Branch Meeting will be held at the Sportsman, Huddersfield at 8pm on Monday 20th July 2009. We hope to see you there.
The Rose & Crown Thurstonland is holding their first beer festival this weekend.
The Star Beer Festival started on Wed 15th July 2009 and runs through until Sunday 19th July with 75 rare & exotic beers available over the 5 days.
Slightly outside our area, but the long awaited Jubilee Refreshment Rooms has opened at Sowerby Bridge station. Andrew & Chris Wright have spent a long time sympathetically renovating the listed building, and it is now open and offers 6 handpumped cask beers.
The Commercial at Slaithwaite has reopened and is now selling 8 real ales and a real cider, all on handpumps.
The pub has contemporary decor, but retains original features such as the bar and wood panelling.
The pub is being run by Jonny & Tricia Holmes, in addition to the Swan at Crimble, which they have run successfully for several years.
The Branch will be having a Social at 8pm on Saturday 4th July at the Monkeyfest III at Armitage Bridge Monkey Club.
