Seaside tipples spearhead the Galtres beer list
The thirstily anticipated beer and cider list for Galtres Parklands Festival 2014 has been unveiled, boasting beverages from across the flavour spectrum, from IPAs and blondes to delicious bitters and rich stouts. In-keeping with our seaside theme for 2014, a number of the beers and ciders on offer will celebrate the Great British coast, by name and by design.
Nautical-themed picks-of-the-bunch include Bad Seed Brewery’s ‘South Pacific’, ‘Sunshine’ porter from Brass Castle Brewery, Copper Dragon’s ‘Sun Chaser’ and ‘West Coast Pale’, ‘Sealord’ and ‘Scarborough Stout’ from Scarborough Brewery, and The Village’s ‘Whitby Abbey Ale’. More than enough seaside tipples to provide the drinker with a sunny outlook on life.
The full beer and cider list includes over 100 choices, including offerings from Ainsty Ales, Bird Brain Brewery, Cropton Beers, Four Thorns Brewing, Geeves Brewery, Great Heck Brewery, Goose Eye Brewery, the Great Yorkshire Brewery, Hambleton Brewery, The Hop Studio, Mitchell Krause, New Helmsley Brewery, Pennine Brewing Co., Revolution, Settle Brewery, Treboom, Walls Brewery, Wensleyday, Wharf Bank, Wold Top and Yorkshire Heart, in addition to the breweries providing seaside-themed beers mentioned above.
Festival director James Houston comments: “Galtres Parklands Festival has never just been about the music. We started out in 2005, as a real ale festival at The Durham Ox pub in Crayke. The bands, the comedy, the theatre, the food and the family fun all came later.
“We’re staying true to our roots and ordering in over 100 excellent beers and ciders to quench your thirst. Our bars will have a beer or cider with your name on it, whether you’re an ale-trailer searching for the holy grail of local brews, or you’re just after a lovely, refreshing pint to complement your festive fun.”
