Following discussions at the York City of Ale Beer Festival on the 16th July 2016, the brewer (Tony Rogers) of Half Moon Brewery at Ellerton, York has agreed to brew a special railway-themed beer for the Calderdale Festival. The beer will be named ‘Hogwart’s Express’ after the train in Harry Potter movies and will be based on Half Moon Brewery’s popular Lunar Pale Ale (5.5%). As this may be the only opportunity you might get to sample this ale, it is suggested that you attend the Festival so that you don’t miss out! We would like to thank Tony, and his wife Jackie, for agreeing to brew this special ale
This years Festival will be in Hebden Bridge from September 22nd -24th in the Town Hall. If you are interested in helping or indeed sponsoring the Festival please get in touch with the organisers.
