Cheers Leeds! We take a look at the upcoming International Beer Festival


Hitting the city from Thursday 6 to Sunday 9 September, Leeds International Beer Festival returns for its 7thyear, bringing the very best of craft beer. Brewed in the UK and overseas, there will be over 60 breweries present as well as a street food market and live music.


As UK breweries continue to succeed, both at home and around the globe, the offering is strong and fresh. Favourites such as Northern Brewing Co, Mad Hatter and Weird Beard, will be bringing the very best of what they offer. From Penny Lane Pale and Tzatziki Sour, to Kills Pills and Sour Slave, there is something to satisfy any thirst.


If you’re thinking this festival puts food secondary then think again. This year the offering is enough to rival that of the ale – we’re talking Bundobust, Boss Burgers, Little Bao Boy, Parm Star and Donor Summer! Street food. With such a range, you’re allowed to try every vender right? We highly recommend the Bundobust Veggie Burger (but don’t tell Boss Burger).

Tickets can be purchased for different sessions across the four days, starting from £7.50. Beer purchases operate on a ticket system and no under 18’s are allowed access - apart from on the Sunday.
