Brewers Market Beer Festival returns in May for Leeds Indie Food Festival

This 11th – 12th May, Brewers Market Beer Festival 2018 will be returning to Canal Mills for its fourth year and a brand-new summer slot which to coincide with the opening weekend of Leeds Indie Food Festival; Leeds’ biggest city-wide, month-long independent food and drink festival.

Showcasing the very best of local and international craft beer over the course of two days and three sessions, this year will be their biggest yet. Swapping their usual November slot for the warmer climes of May, Canal Mills’ outdoor space will allow for even more craft beer and street food, as well as a pop-up gin bar hosted by Bathtub Gin, a selection of natural wines from Wayward Wines and DJs.

Joining them over the weekend will be a hefty bunch of brewery partners including the likes of: Verdant, Kirkstall, Northern Monk, Thornbridge, Vocation, Black Lodge, Zapato, Track, Buxton, the Tall Boys bottle shop with many more to be announced over the coming weeks. Over in the food department, there will be the likes of Mussel Pot, Little Bao Boy, Rabbit Hole Coffee, Sandos, MorMor and Little Red Food Truck.

“This year we’ve moved from our traditional November slot to the summer, which will give us the chance to use more of Canal Mills and therefore bring in more breweries than ever before! We’ll also have a wider selection of food and extras thrown in for 2018,” says Matt Long, Events Manager at Canal Mills. “With more exciting breweries to be announced in the coming weeks, it’s going to be our biggest edition of Brewers Market yet.”
