Top of the hops: craft beer festival returns to Canal Mills

After its successful first year in 2014, Canal Mills' annual beer festival – the Brewers Market – will be returning for a weekend celebration of food, craft beer, wine, spirits and live music on November 6-7.

With a host of brewery partners including Fourpure, Five Points, Northern Monk and more, the festival has in plenty in store to satisfy the even the city's most discerning drinkers.

For example, for those wanting to broaden their drinking horizons, progressive brewers Firestone Walker, Mikkeller, Sierra Navada, Veltins and Yeastie Boys will present visitors with the chance to explore a global choice of beers at their pop up bars.

Plus, Brewers Market bars from Cloudwater, Magic Rock, Roosters, Thornbridge and Summer Wine Brewery mean beer fans might find some new favourites closer to home, too.

Away from the ales, fans of specialised cocktails will be excited to hear that The Hedonist Project will be taking care of the spirits with a pop-up Whisky and Gin bar, while Latitude bring a huge wine selection.

Representing the Leeds street food scene, the Brewers Market will also provide a home for Holbeck's Grub & Grog Shop, Sela Bar's The Pizza Fella and Boozy Q BBQ and seafood purveyors Fish&.

Music will be taken of by a talented line up including Eighty Six, Hide & Seek Records, Anthony Dobson, Body Language DJ’s, Tall Boys DJ’s and Alex & Amy Audio Chronicles.
