York City of Ale Festival

York City of Ale Festival

6th – 8th July 2017


Whether you came last year or this is your first time, we’ve got some top quality Yorkshire brewed beers on show. Pair this with some awesome local street food and a bit of live music and we think you’re in for a real treat.

We wanted the festival to be even bigger and better this year, so we’ve made a few small changes. We welcome the return of Bad Seed, Brass Castle & Half Moon for the second year. And making their City of Ale debut are, our friends, North Riding.

These main brewery bars, in addition to our own bar, are each hosting a guest brewery for the weekend. We felt this was a great opportunity to hopefully introduce some breweries who are relatively new or possibly just new to you. So be sure to look out for Bone Machine, Turning Point, Twisted Angel, Wilde Child & Five Towns. Their beers as well as some of the brewers should be around all weekend.

We’ve invited Orchards of Husthwaite along this year to run a dedicated Cider bar.

And we have a separate wine & spirit bar serving up some amazing beer cocktails.

Street food vendors include Shambles Kitchen, Hog Roast Yorkshire & Pompiere Pizza
