Steel City Beer & Cider Festival volunteers day out

On Saturday 9th.November, 39 of the many volunteers at SCBF45 had a day out. This year we went to Harrogate.

An initial hour long stop at the recently opened Roosters Brewery and Taproom was followed by a few hours in Harrogate. Roosters were founded in 1993 and quickly developed a reputation for brewing ground-breaking, hop-forward pale ales that showcased (then) new hops from the USA. Earlier this year, they relocated to Hornbeam Park in Harrogate. Their taproom is open Wednesday – Sunday and is well-worth a visit.

We then moved into Harrogate and small groups visited many of the venues on our pre-prepared list – plus a few extras. For example, the ‘Disappearing Chin’ micropub. A good day was had by all – personal highlights include Cold Bath Brewery Tap, the Harrogate Tap and Major Toms. Key beers included Silent Assassin (Roosters), Harbour Little Rock IPA (Little Ale House) and Nightjar Zolo (Major Toms Social).

We hope to see you on the SCBF46 day out!
