There will be 3 bars and a marque serving over 60 different beers over the weekend, with all cask beers being on handpull from the cellar. There will also be 3 guest ciders from the Pure North brewery which is based in the Holme Valley, Yorkshire and run by Rob the owner of Hideaway Cottage in Staveley. Pure North Cider is pressed by hand and full of anti-oxidants, and can often be cloudy as it is naturally produced from a blend of cider apples picked from their own orchard on site.
