Guild member Sam Parker has helped to organise the North Leeds Charity Beer Festival, which celebrates its seventh year when it returns to North Leeds Cricket Club on the 6-7 April 2018.

The annual charity fundraising event is now an established highlight in the Roundhay social calendar. To celebrate this milestone we will be dispensing 35 beers from seven small independent and micro-breweries together with seven ciders. A novel addition to the 2018 festival will be our new Gin Bar serving seven incredible gins from small producers that you won’t find anywhere else, along with new tonics, mixers and tasty botanicals!

The festival is known for some serious entertainment which showcase local Leeds musical talent and 2018 will see past favourites as well as new talent. We have a full programme of music playing over the two day festival. To compliment the fine selection of real ale, cider & gin we will be serving food to suit the occasion throughout the Festival.

Since 2012 The Rotary Club of Roundhay’s beer festival has raised over £30k and charities based locally in Leeds, nationally and Internationally have benefitted. Local organisations to receive financial support include: St Gemma’s Hospice, John Jamieson School, Roundhay Stroke Club, Catch in Harehills and Leeds Rowing Club based at Roundhay Park Lake, where two rowing machines were funded. Local Rotary programmes including the ocean-going Young Sailor, Young Musician, Young Writer, Young Citizen, Young Chef, Leeds Technology Tournament and Rotary Youth Leadership Award have also received funding from the monies raised.

We are indebted to our major sponsors Morley Glass and Glazing Ltd and Express Bi-Folding Doors for their continued support without which the festival wouldn’t take place and the Rotary Club of Roundhay couldn’t fund their worthwhile projects.

Ian Short, Managing Director of Morley Glass says: “We are delighted to be able to sponsor the 7th Annual North Leeds Charity Beer Festival. This is exactly the type of initative we like to be involved with as it perfectly reflects our ethos of giving back to local communities. I personally will be rolling up my sleeves and helping alongside the Rotarians and I am very much looking forward to the event. I wish NLBF and the Rotary Club of Roundhay every success.”

We would also like acknowledge the support of our individual sponsors and advertisers whose contribution is invaluable.

North Leeds Cricket Club open their doors at 6pm on Friday and from 12noon on Saturday. The cost of entry is £10, however you can get a £2 discount by booking your tickets in advance online – members of CAMRA or SPBW will get a £2 discount regardless. The ticket price entitles you to a special festival pack which includes a commemorative beer glass, programme and two beer tokens, with extra tokens available for £1.50.

We will be announcing further details of the 2018 North Leeds Charity Beer Festival via our website and social media channels so please follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page to keep in touch.

Specialist beer importer Euroboozer has further bolstered its world beer portfolio after launching Stiegl Columbus 1492 Pale Ale ahead of Craft Beer Rising.

Paying homage to Christopher Columbus who started out on his first voyage to America in 1492, the year of Stiegl’s inception, the new Austrian pale ale has already been listed on draught in the iconic Harry Gordon’s Bar at Selfridges and showcases the best of European brewing and new world hops.

Stiegl Columbus 1492 – 4.7% abv

A refreshing discovery for beer lovers – this top-fermented pale ale is given a similar amount of time in the tank to that of a lager, which results in a beer with a delicate cloudiness, elegant body, fruit-forward hoppy flavour and crisp, clean finish.  Available in 25 litre kegs and cases of 12 x 330ml bottles.

To support the launch, Euroboozer will be investing in a range of brand activation events in the next few months.  These kick off on Wednesday 21st February prior to Craft Beer Rising with a Stiegl Après Ski party at Strongroom Bar in Shoreditch with any visitor adorned in Ski Gear on the night receiving a free stein of Stiegl.

The event will also feature a Euro DJ on the decks, live music and authentic Austrian food with anyone ordering a classic Schnitzel before 8.30pm receiving a complimentary Stiegl.

The brand will then be continuing the celebrations at stands 110-113 at Craft Beer Rising running from the 22nd – 24th February.

Founder of Euroboozer, Martyn Railton comments:

“We’re delighted to extend the range of Stiegl beers available in the UK and have big expectations for this incredibly special pale ale.  Since the time of Columbus, the Stiegl brewery has been forging a reputation for producing beers of the finest quality so we excited to be unleashing their latest brew on London and the wider UK.”

About Stiegl

The Stiegl brewery grew out of what was a popular beer-making guesthouse called the ‘Bräuhaus an der Gstätten’.  It was first mentioned in written records on the 16th June 1492 and was located in Salzburg, Austria.  Over the past 500 plus years, the brewery has seen everything from immense joy and celebrations to fires, war, and economic turmoil but throughout, it has remained, playing a huge part in the city and country’s culture and history.  Even Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart guzzled a few Stiegl beers in 18th century.

Most famously known for its multi award-winning Stiegl Goldbräu beer, which launched in the UK in 2007, Stiegl utilises a wealth of brewing experience combined with some of the most high tech brewing equipment, processes and procedures in Europe whilst benefiting from the finest Austrian raw materials – often cultivated in the brewery’s own fields.

About Euroboozer

Started from the back of an old VW Vento in 2003, Euroboozer was set up by beer lover Martyn Railton, initially importing Austrian brands Hirter, Stiegl and Schremser. The company soon branched out with a deal to distribute acclaimed US craft brewer Rogue and 12 years on the VW Vento has gone to be replaced with offices and a warehouse in Hertfordshire.

The company delivers direct to London, the South-east, Bristol and also works with a close network of sub-distributors around the UK.   While much has changed since the company was started, Martyn and the company’s passion for finding, building and distributing a unique range of speciality beers where quality is king remains the same.

For further information on the Stiegl range or to stock, please contact the Euroboozer on 01923 263335 or visit www.euroboozer.co.uk

A high-profile deal with Carlsberg UK marks the latest success for on-trade tech company MRM, as the increasingly competitive market drives demand for its innovative marketing support software.

The start of 2018 saw Carlsberg UK roll out MRM’s POS Creator Software to its sales team. Using MRM’s Brand Creator App, sales managers can use their iPads to create drinks menus and point of sale items in real time, during on-site meetings with operators.

By sharing an interactive 3D visual, they can get instant customer approval during the sales visit. All items are printed and delivered to the venue within two working days in order to maximise the sales opportunity for operators.

Tracy McIntosh, head of customer marketing at Carlsberg UK, said, “We give our on-trade customers as much support as possible to maximise the competitive edge our market-leading brands give them, and we needed an updated solution for providing pubs and bars with POS items.

“Having worked successfully with MRM for six years now, we know they bring both industry knowledge and IT expertise to the table, and so they were our first point of call. The POS tool they have delivered to support our sales teams has surpassed our expectations in terms of both functionality and ease of use, and the immediate buy-in from our team is very encouraging.”

With on-trade outlets needing to be more effective than ever at showcasing their product offering to consumers, MRM is working with an increasing number of drinks brands and wholesalers.

Craig Letton, CEO of MRM, said, “The on-trade market is dynamic and fast moving, and our technology enables drinks brands and wholesalers to keep pace, and provide their customers with the menus and POS they need to increase sales and profits.

“Competition for customers is fierce, and operators simply don’t have the time to wait for sales people to brief their design team, send emails back and forth and wait for proofs. Using our technology, sales people and customers work together to create customised marketing material during their sales visit.

“As Carlsberg UK has found, by using our interactive 3D model, operators can see exactly how it’s going to appear in their outlet, and provide immediate approval. Combining this with our super-fast print turnaround means we can ensure operators have their menus and POS within two days of the order being placed.

“We’re delighted to see an increasing number of brand owners and distributors choosing to use our software, both in the UK and internationally. We’ve proven with our clients in the UK that our technology makes sales people more efficient, increases sales and improves customer service.

“This success has led to several international contract wins, and we are currently in the process of rolling out our software across Europe with a number of major drinks brands. It’s a very exciting time for the business.”

MRM provides drinks brands and distributors with on-trade specific technology solutions. MRM’s Brand Creator platform enables sales teams to more effectively support their customers with locally tailored, brand-compliant marketing materials which are proven to increase sales and create upselling opportunities through increased visibility in outlet. For more information please visit www.mrmbrand.com or call 01259 728 020.

The Future of Cask Beer?

XT Brewing welcomes proposals by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) to widen its remit to include all quality beers, and not just cask ales.

XT Brewing head brewer Russ Taylor said CAMRA’s move fits in well with XT’s business philosophy.

“Following a very busy 2017 when we made a significant investment in new brewing equipment and a new brewery tap room, we are 100 per cent committed to increasing the production of our cask ales.

“However, we are also committed to increasing our production of all our craft beers, which are also produced in kegs, bottles and cans.

“CAMRA’s proposal to appeal to a wider range of drinkers who enjoy all quality beers – while continuing to advocate that real ale is the pinnacle of the brewers’ craft, fits in well with our thinking.

“This is a very exciting time for us. After six years and brewing more than three million pints, we have recently announced a rebranding of our cask beer range.

“It’s been a great voyage so far on the good ship XT – six years ago we were just setting sail as a new virgin brewery in a beer world where there were only a few hundred like us.

“Now there are five times more breweries in a very crowded sea. However – we are still going at full steam ahead, with strong growth every year since the outset.

“There have been some significant changes in the world of beer – it has made seismic shifts from dull mass marketing and standard brews to the glamorous new epoch of craft beer.

Back when we started our branding was quite unusual, turning away from the traditional look or silly names, we went clean, slick and straightforward with a cutting-edge numbering and colour coded look.

“We literally nailed our colours to the mast and set out to be a bit different, setting the co-ordinates firmly on producing high quality cask beer backed up with inclusive, unfussy design.

“As the beer world evolved we saw the growing tide of craft brewers and now with so many other brands around – doing everything from minimalist to psychedelic, it’s getting rather hard to stand out in such a crowd.

“The terminology of craft beer is something of an enigma in England. The Americans, who arguably coined the term, view the beer and brewing world: vertically in terms of volume by producer; whereas over here, we do things differently, and view it horizontally in terms of dispense method. This does rather make twisting an American view point over our beer world a bit tricky.

“So, is cask beer craft or not? –Yes probably, but I don’t think it really matters. At XT we make beer for cask, keg, can or bottle and we craft all of them with the same love and care. The most significant format for us is, by far, cask.

“Cask beer makes up most of our production and we have invested heavily over the years in our facility and equipment to make more of it and make it better. The cask range under the core XT or experimental Animal brand has been growing and we have striven to keep evolving and developing.

“Our research and development programme has been bringing some wondrous beery delights including the 12-month Imperial Stout, aged in a variety of seasoned oak vats; Eisbar Craft-Keg Lager, the ever-changing Animal cask range and its impetuous little cousin the Baby Animal series of micro-brewed one-offs.

“One of the most recent developments has been our newest beer of 2018, the HopCat IPA; it is bang on trend as a hyper hoppy but lower alcohol by volume session beer.

“The design world of beer has now caught up with our branding, but we will keep moving ahead of the pack and continue to do our own thing.

“To further show our faith in the future of cask beer – we have brought our cask beer branding up to date with a modern new look. The next generation branding will be launched in March 2018 and gives all our beers a cohesive family look while keeping to our core branding principles.

We see the future of XT firmly in the cask market, working with our existing pub partners while reaching out to other operators who are looking for an innovative brewery to develop new markets for beer with us.”

 Black Sheep Brewery has unveiled a new look to its award-winning Visitor Centre, following a major refurbishment at the Masham-based brewery.

Black Sheep utilised the services of local tradespeople to carry out the work at the Visitor Centre, as well as a number of the brewery’s employees.

The bar area has been updated with a ‘craft keg beer wall’ and a revamped seating/lounge area, which has created more of a modern pub setting.

New furniture, including tables, chairs and sofas, has been fitted to offer a relaxing environment alongside the bistro, with large ‘bottled light boxes’ comprising of clear Black Sheep bottles, adding to the setting.

A lounge area has also been created on the mezzanine, with the bistro and Sheepy Shop revamped, following the investment.

It is estimated that 30,000 people descend on Masham each year to visit the Black Sheep Brewery Visitor Centre.

In 2016, it was awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, which celebrates hospitality businesses that have earned consistently positive reviews on TripAdvisor.

Last year, Black Sheep was named the British Beer & Pub Association’s (BBPA) Beer Champion 2017, in its silver anniversary year, in recognition of its commitment to supporting the pub industry.

Jo Theakston, Sales and Marketing Director at Black Sheep Brewery, said: “This is a significant investment for Black Sheep that further strengthens our offering at the Visitor Centre, which has grown to become a major attraction in Yorkshire. Flocks of people visit the brewery every year and the refurbishment has given the Visitor Centre a modern facelift, while maintaining our strong values as a traditional, independent brewery, since it was built more than 25 years ago.

“Everyone ranging from local tradespeople and our team have worked extremely hard to revamp the Visitor Centre, as we look to build on the success it has enjoyed over the years. Black Sheep is a major employer in Masham, so we are hoping to attract even more people to the Visitor Centre and make it a much more focal point in the town where guests can enjoy a meal, have a pint with friends or use our space for meetings and social gatherings.”

Editor’s Notes:

The Black Sheep Brewery is one of British brewing’s most famous stories and has grown from humble beginnings to become a multi-award winning company, with its beers enjoyed around the world.

In the past 12 months, Black Sheep has won a number of prestigious awards, including:

The British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) Beer Champion 2017

World Beer Awards – Choc & Orange Stout – Gold Award

World Beer Awards – Riggwelter – Gold Award

World Beer Awards – Black Sheep Ale – Silver Award

World Beer Awards – My Generation – Bronze Award

Based in Masham, in the heart of North Yorkshire, Black Sheep brewed its first beer in 1992 after being built up by Paul Theakston, whose family had brewed in the area for six generations.

In a world of ever-increasing bland, mass-produced beer, Paul saw an opportunity to return to what his family had done best since 1827, making real beer in the time-honoured fashion.

An old maltings building, once part of Lightfoot’s Brewery, became the Brewery’s home. This landmark building, which stands high over the banks of the Ure, had fallen in to disrepair as years of neglect as a semi-redundant grainstore had taken its toll. Paul assembled a small team around him to fight the rats and build a traditional country brewery.

The Visitor Centre, at the site of the iconic brewery, has grown to become an award-winning attraction for visitors to Yorkshire, with tens of thousands of people flocking to Masham each year.

The Black Sheep name derived from Masham’s association with sheep, but ‘Sheep Brewery’ didn’t quite sound right, so with a little creativity from Paul’s wife, the Black Sheep Brewery was born – a name that sat well with the area, spoke volumes about the business’ maverick attitude to the multi-nationals seeking to dominate the brewing industry and captured the essence of the family struggle that led to its birth.

Black Sheep’s beers are full of character derived from the best possible brewing materials, plenty of time and patience in the brewing and its very special Yorkshire Square fermenters.

Black Sheep Best Bitter is now one of the best-selling cask session beers in the UK and many of its creative brews, over the course of its 25-year history, have collected numerous awards – ranging from Black Sheep’s traditional ales to its up and coming craft beers.

2017 marked the launch of Black Sheep Brewery’s first lager, 54 Degrees North, created in homage to its hometown of Masham, which sits on 54’ 13’ 24” N; 1’ 39’ 20” W longitude and latitude lines, as the company embarks on an adventurous new chapter in its distinguished history.
