Visited the 3rd Annual Skipton Beer Festival on Friday 24th April 2009 and it was big and very busy.
60 cask ales were stacked in the beer hall including several mild’s and a full selection of hand pulled Timothy Taylor’s and Copper Dragon ale’s accompanied by bottled continental lagers and a big selection of cider & perry.
My favourites on the night included :-
- “Dave” 3.8%abv Bitter, a dark, smooth velvety bitter from the Great Heck Brewing Co
- Yorkshire Penny 4.5%abv, classic dry stout from Yorkshire Dales Brewing, Askrigg
- and as these were all gravity pulled a couple of creamy beer engine pulled Copper Dragons and Timmie Taylors.
A very well organised event by Craven branch of Camra and the local breweries, well worth a visit next year.
