News: Beer festival back on at New York Stadium


The rearranged fixture of the New York Beer Festival takes place this weekend at the AESSEAL New York Stadium, the home of Rotherham United.

Organised and run by the Rotherham branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), the third running of the event was postponed when the Championship club secured another prestigious international fixture in November, but it is back "bigger and better."

The "Home," "Away" and "Championship" bars will feature 70 different real ales from Yorkshire and Derbyshire, all delivered by hand-pulls, as well as bottled beers, cider and perry, and wine from around the world. All of the winning ales from The Rotherham CAMRA Yorkshire Championship held at the Magna Real Ale Festival in 2014 will be available.

Rotherham's three breweries - Chantry, Harthill Village and Wentworth - will be represented. Indeed, Chantry used the first event in 2012 to officially launch its first beers.

Live music is also on the bill with acts performing on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Steve Burns, chairman of Rotherham CAMRA and festival organiser described the festival as a "fantastic celebration of real ale, now established as a don't miss event on Rotherham's vibrant social scene."

Everyone working at the festival is an unpaid CAMRA volunteer and Rotherham Cancer Care Centre will be present throughout the festival raising money for its worthy cause.

Steve added his thanks to the festival sponsors including main sponsors Wilford Smith Solicitors and other local firms.

Rotherham insolvency experts Moorhead Savage is giving its support by sponsoring the programme. Paul Moorhead, managing director at the award-winning firm, said: "I am delighted to once again have this opportunity to be involved in such a great event. We are a Rotherham company and we are always keen to promote Rotherham's successes and be a part of them.

"It's a pleasure to be able to join main sponsors Wilford Smith Solicitors and give our backing to such a successful event."

Tickets to the event cost £5.
