Bring Your 3 Entry bottles on the Day & we will issue Tags with your entry number to be applied to the bottles on the day of the event.

The Brewery will be open from 11.00am to accept entries, all entries must be in by 13.00

Now… seeing as you are coming to Saltaire Brewery we have a couple of bars that will be needing stocking with beer… not any old beer mind… Homebrewed beer 🙂 We’ll be asking a few of you to brew a beer to be served on Handpull (Bag in Box) and the proceeds will be split between the brewers chosen charities, last year we raised £400 I’m sure we can beat that!
We’ll be giving the peoples choice Cask beer an Engraved Tankard too, the beer to brew for the bar is to be pretty open but it would be good to stick with the American theme and within 3.5 to 5.5% ABV. (Info for invited cask Brewers)

Oh… did I mention we are working on giving you guys a talk on Hops too, thanks to Andrew Whalley of Charles Faram.
And……. we’ll do some Brewery Tours, as if the beer wasn’t enough to keep you busy!
Bring your homebrew,  swapping and tasting is very much encouraged 🙂

If you need food, bring your own as its a 10 minute walk to the nearest eatery as is Shipley Train Station, here’s the Google Map for the Brewery. Their is an Ibis Hotel 10mins walk away too and local Aagrah curry house not too far either 🙂
