FOOD

There’ll be street food vendors on site to keep you fed, including:

DILLA DELI

We’re excited to announce that The Dilla Deli will be with us all weekend and they have sorted us out with an all veggie menu. Their Mexican inspired dillas should go down a treat with a beer or two!

BEARS PANTRY

Bears Pantry is an alternative catering company offering exciting food with a rustic feel. They are serving up some amazing flavours which have been carefully constructed to go down perfectly with a beer.

Choose from the Butchers Pie with Minted Peas and Bears Beer HP sauce or the Beer Bread Cuban Sandwich – a Slow Cooked Boston Butt with Ham Ends, Bacon Beer Jam, Manchego Cheese and House Pickle.

BEER QUIZ WITH BEN RANDM (afternoon session)

Entertainer Ben Randm will be hosting a special beer related edition of his quiz, Let’s Get Quizzical. This is a hugely popular quiz which takes places every Wednesday at White’s on Otley Rd. in Headingley.

With prizes to be won make sure you sign your team up to take part. You can expect four fun rounds packed with great questions alongside some quirky facts and topped off with Ben incorporating his Stand Up within it!

Ben is a multifaceted entertainer who is known for his engaging energy and is fast becoming one of the most sought after faces around. He’s a local lad to the area, he really is excited to be part of LS6 Beer Festival.

He’ll also be spinnin’ the sounds you’d expect to hear from his weekly Thursday night ‘Wonder Visions’ that take place at the recently refurbished ‘Milo’ where the music ethos is quite simply – Forget Genres & Recall Great Records.

For Saturday night ticket holders, you can get involved with the quiz if you like or do your own thing – it’s as relaxed and informal as always.
