A new independent beer festival is planned to launch this May Day Bank Holiday (2016) with events taking place at the BrewHaus and Bierkeller bars in the heart of the city of Bradford.

The free entry beer and music festival is scheduled to run from Friday 29th April 2016 to Monday 2nd May 2016, and will feature more than 40 real ales and ciders from across the UK. Beers from well-loved local breweries such as the Bradford Brewery and Salamander will be on offer, along with representations from other parts of Yorkshire such as Skipton’s Grey Hawk, Copper Dragon and the York Brewery. Hand-crafted ciders and perries will be provided by The Real Cider Co. from Hebden Bridge, who will also be running tasting sessions.

Besides the beer and ciders there will be stalls from the venues’ monthly vintage market, plus street food snacks as well as live music lined up throughout the weekend: Friday night features classic rock and pop from "Playing for Kicks"; Saturday offers a choice of entertainment styles - acoustic rock singer Danny Aspinall (popular for his Bruce Springsteen / Americana influences) will headline in the Brew Haus while the Bierkeller puts on its traditional live Bavarian style Oompah band. Sunday’s headliner is acoustic three-piece "The Good Citizens" (of Bradford City anthem "Take Me Home" fame).

BrewHaus General Manager Jodie Hildred said: "We have six ales on the pumps on a regular basis and the feedback from customers has been that they’d like to see even more real ales and especially a good selection from local breweries. So we decided to put on an event that is really focussing on the beer. "If the first one goes down well, we’ll make it a regular event, so please come along and support it. Enjoy some great beers and good music – and do let us know what you think. “We’ll also have the large well-stocked main bar open with the usual full range of world beers, wines and spirits and cocktails for those festival-goers who have friends and family with different preferences!"

The venue is at the heart of Bradford city centre’s revitalised West End, part of the new leisure complex which opened in the Old Windsor Baths building off Great Horton Road at the end of 2015.
