Hambleton Ales, based at Melmerby near Ripon are to throw open there brewery doors again to the public this spring for their second brewery tour event.
The North Yorkshire based brewery hosted the event last year for the first time to celebrate their 25th anniversary and the event proved so popular with locals and beer enthusiast alike that the team have decided to make it an annual event.
This year’s open day is taking place on Saturday 15th April between 12 – 4pm and will include a bar showcasing the brewery’s range of cask, kegged and bottled beers alongside handcrafted hot dogs from street food vendor Diamond Dogs.
Nick Stafford, owner of Hambleton Ales said, “Last year’s event was a great celebration of our 25th birthday and we had so much fun that we wanted to do it again. For those that came last year, you already know just how great it was and I look forward to seeing them again. For anyone else looking for something to do on Easter weekend, what could be better than a party in a brewery?!”
Music will be provided by the brewery’s own resident band Replay and there will be a bouncy castle for the young (and not so young!) to enjoy.
To mark this special occasion this year’s bar will also include a cask of Toast Pale Ale, a 5% beer that Hambleton brews for Toast Ale, a company which uses surplus bread (that would otherwise be wasted) in the brew. Normally destined only for bottle, this single cask will be the only one that the brewery will be producing for drinkers in Yorkshire, so those wishing to try some of this limited edition ale are encouraged to arrive early!
Entry to the open day is free and brewery tours will be taking place throughout the day. For more information visit www.hambletonales.co.uk
