and live on Freeview channel 276
The 2023 line-up includes beers from Horsforth Brewery, ginger beer specialists DMC, The Meanwood Brewery, Grumpy Jon’s Cider, Docks Beers, The Hoptimist and more.
Mark Costello, owner of Horsforth Brewery, said: “We absolutely love hosting our beer festivals. It’s a great opportunity for local breweries to showcase their products in Horsforth and to bring beer into Horsforth that’s not normally available.”
Alongside their usual range of beers, Horsforth Brewery will be presenting some new beers from its “IconSeries” - a range of beers brewed by the staff of the brewery, each with its own unique recipe.
The brewery described the range as “a celebration of the creativity and passion of the team, showcasing their favourite beer styles from hoppy IPAs to Imperial Stouts”, and was launched in 2023 for the Easter beer festival.
Guests can also experience a range of food vendors and live music sessions on Friday and Saturday evening.

When and where is the 2023 Horsforth Beer Festival?

How to get tickets for 2023 Horsforth Beer Festival
Due to the ongoing cost of living crisis, Horsforth Beer Festival will offer two types of tickets; one which will give guests a special glass that they can use at the festival and then bring home, or if you’ve attended the festival on a previous year, you can bring your own glass and in return for the entrance price receive two tokens for a half pint each.
Mark Costello said: "We know times are hard for so many people right now and want to make it easier for people to attend the festival. We also know that people’s glass cupboards are probably bursting from the amount of festival glasses they’ll have accumulated over the years, I know mine is, so if they’d rather bring one of the glasses from one of our previous festivals we’re delighted to accommodate that."
Tickets cost £5 and can be purchased via the Horsforth Brewery website. Under 18s enter for free.
