About Us & Beer List

In 2011, a small band of real ale enthusiasts thought it would be a great idea to start a beer festival in Poppleton to raise money for junior football.

Now, as we approach our magnificent 7th beer festival, we have now become a favourite summer festival in many people’s diaries. With 65 beers (see list below), a great selection of Yorkshire ciders, wine, a Pimms and Prosecco tent, fabulous food, outstanding music on Friday night and all day and all evening Saturday, and a wonderful summer festival family feel, what are you waiting for?! See you there…!
