B E E R
Over the years , this club has played host to a wide variety of people and organisations, including the local branch of CAMRA , with whom we have developed a close and productive relationship. CAMRA have honoured us with a string of awards which line the walls of the small room in the centre of the club (see panel below)
Real Ale first appeared in the Red
Shed during the mid 1980s and really took off in the early
1990s, at about the same time that we started getting
attention from CAMRA. Real Ale gradually ousted the keg
beer from our bar as many club regulars changed to drinking
better tasting beer of consistent high quality. We have
never looked back since then.
We usually have 4 cask-conditioned beers on handpump at any one time, which should include something to suit all tastes. All are from small to medium sized breweries, the majority from Yorkshire and surrounding regions but also some from the rest of the UK and occasionally beyond. We also keep a range of bottled Belgian beers.
If you ask for lager you will get one of these
. . .
Kaltenberg 4.1% and Warsteiner 4.8% (genuine german beers) and,
for cider drinkers, we have Kingstone Press from the pump
Our beer prices currently are in the range of £2 to £3 a pint for cask beers (dependent on strength), £3.10 a pint for Warsteiner, £2.60 a pint for Kaltenberg and Kingstone Press cider.
Real ale lovers are always welcome here.
Non-members will usually be expected to sign in as visitors
but, occasionally, we throw our doors open to all comers and
run a BEER FESTIVAL, when we can have 20 or more beers
on offer at once. To date we have successfully run
about 10 such events – although not at regular intervals. The
most recent one was 19th to 21st
Also the club was hired in May 2015 and again in May 2016 by Five Towns Brewery to run a charity fundraising festival.
No more official Red Shed beer festivals are planned at present but, if someone has a burning desire to organise one, then we will see.
