We love a good beer festival, who doesn't? An afternoon trying lots of delicious beers from a bunch of fantastic breweries. 
On the same day that Leeds International Beer Festival announce it will go ahead again this year on 8-11 September 2022 for the 10th festival at an unknown location this year, we remember how we were there at the very first festival back in 2012 - the same year we opened, only two months into our new venture! 
We're also super excited to see another West Yorkshire town launching their own craft beer festival - Ilkley, also home to the 2nd Friends of Ham. April 2022 will see the inaugural Crafty Dogg's Beer Festival organised by none other than ex-Frammer and craft beer nut Nathan. Ilkley already plays host to an annual beer festival but this is the town's first craft-only beer celebration and we couldn't be more excited. 
Breweries already lined up include North Brew Co, Bini Brew, Vocation, Beak Brewery and Ilkley Brewery and we're excited to see what the full line up is. 
To find out more and to buy tickets head to their website.

Good luck Nathan and we'll see you there!
