A joint social with Leeds & Calderdale Camra Branches at Kirkstall Brewery on 100 Kirkstall Road, Leeds.
Meet at the Brewery 12:30pm for a tour of the kit and perhaps a quick pint. From here its on to the Cardigan Arms around 3:00ish, where there will be a rare chance to tour the Victorian Tower Brewery. From here it is onto the Kirkstall Bridge Inn.
Feel free to join in the visits to the other two pubs. The Cardigan Arms will be showing the 6 Nations Rugby matches upstairs.
You don’t need to book, attendance is free, please wear stout(ish) footwear if you are interested in looking round the breweries. This promises to be a grand day.
Buses run approx. every 10-20mins along Kirkstall Road in each direction, so return transport should be no issue.
The last cask of ‘GeeGee’ will be served at another Nomadic Beers Un-Open event, Sat. 10 Nov 2018, 12-18:00 pm @Nomadic Beers, new location in Sheepscar. There will be a crafts market on as well and food. (If the last event is anything to go by, it will be another corker)
Thought you might also like to see what the bloggers are saying about the Co-Hoperative and the last Un-Open event @Nomadic Beers on Oct 6th 2018:.
Our harvest beer launch this year was at Nomadic Beers on Saturday 6th October.
The beer, a 4.5% pale called GeeGee after Nomadic’s delivery van The Green Goddess, was made using 8.25kg of Cascade hops grown by the Leeds Co-Hoperative. The event was a great success and the beer went down very well! It was subsequently available at Wapentake and Foley’s.
This is when new members can pick up their plants and a chance to chat about plans for this year. The two events cover a few bases: midweek; weekend; central; historic pub; newish bar/shop; great beer.
Once again we are looking for new members. The only difference this time is that new members will get the plants in the winter and as roots (called rhizomes). Your first pack is £20 and any extra plants are £10.
Hopefully the plants will be ready for the launch of this year’s beer in November. Follow us on social media to be sure to know when.
Otherwise there will be another pick-up event will be organised after Christmas.
