BBPA North – Live at the Great Yorkshire Show this week


The British Beer & Pub Association is flying the flag for Yorkshire’s beer and pubs in God’s Own County this week, at the Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate. The event is expected to attract nearly 150,000 visitors over three days.

The regional BBPA has its very own show pub, The Pride of Yorkshire, where samples of fine ales and lagers will be enjoyed by visitors attending the hourly beer and pub presentations. A variety of topics will be shared with show goers, including barrel-making demonstrations from Theakston's resident cooper, Jonathan Manby, haunted pubs and the history of beer.

This year, there will also be a strong emphasis on matching great Yorkshire beers with fine food, with help from the BBPA’s very own Steve Livens – recently made one of Britain’s first four officially accredited beer sommeliers.

BBPA North’s Lee Le Clercq says:

“When it comes to beer and pubs, Yorkshire has it all. The industry’s strong presence at the Yorkshire show is not to be missed, so come along and visit, from Tuesday until Thursday.”

Notes to editors:

BBPA North has produced a full brochure, outlining the action-packed programme of BBPA activities this week, available below.

The British Beer & Pub Association is the UK’s leading organisation representing the brewing and pub sector. Its members account for 96 per cent of the beer brewed in the UK and around half of Britain’s 51,000 pubs.
