She said the event will be a “much needed boost for the city, the hospitality and brewing industry” after a tumultuous time for pubs, bars, restaurants and breweries during the Covid-19 pandemic.

She added: “There will be a continuous intertwining via a hybrid of online and in-person elements with a key online conference exploring beer and brewing research with leading international professionals.”

Festival-goers can enjoy Indie Beer Feast today and Saturday at Trafalgar Warehouse, just off Devonshire Green in the city centre. There will be brew bars, fine cider, street food and natural wine.

A partnership with Harrogate Beer Week will also showcase North Yorkshire breweries in South Yorkshire with a friendly beer week focal point across the county, highlighting the positive nature of beer tourism.

Meanwhile, Sunday Times bestselling author Nick Hayes has also teamed up with brewers in the city to create a new beer called A Right To Roam.

Nick is on a mission to highlight and campaign for the right to access more UK countryside for all.

The beer was launched to help mark the 90th anniversary of Kinder Scout’s mass intrusion into the Peak District.

It was an act of willful trespass by walkers at the highest point in the Peak District in April 1932 to highlight the fact that walkers in England and Wales were being denied access to many areas of open countryside.

It paved the way for the designation of the Peak District as the UK’s first national park in 1951, from which many other areas of natural beauty have followed.

The beer is available now at Hop Hideout.

Nick is also hosting “A Right to Roam Walking Tour” on Saturday, March 12, from Hop Hideout.

However, the event is already sold out due to huge public demand.
