After their first year off in three decades due to the Covid pandemic, the 31st Harrogate Beer Festival hosted by Harrogate Roundtable will be returning to The Crown Hotel on March 11 and 12.

The event will offer over 40 cask ales, 10 kegged beers and their usual array of ciders, wine, prosecco and gin.

They will also be showing all of the action from the Six Nations Rugby, as well as hosting live music on both of the festival’s evenings.

The Harrogate Beer Festival will take place at the Crown Hotel later this month, with proceeds going to charity

With their army of volunteers, they are hoping to create the best party in town.

Andrew Staunton, from Harrogate Roundtable and organiser of the festival, said: “The Harrogate Beer Festival has always proved to be monumental in raising funds for our local charities and we are looking to continue and build on that this year.

"Over the last 21 months, charities have felt a devastating loss of funds at a time when they’ve needed our support more than ever before.

“At Harrogate District Roundtable, we’ve continued to raise awareness, provide support and financial aid wherever possible.

“In November last year, we saw the return of the Harrogate Bonfire and we are so grateful for the support given by our wonderful community.

“We hope that the Harrogate Beer Festival will continue to raise much needed funds for some very worthwhile local charities.

“This year we will be supporting the Samaritans, Martin House Children’s Hospice and the Harrogate Special Care Baby Unit.

“We look forward to welcoming you to our event and thank you for your support.”
