Leeds Beer Week 2017

Its coming up to Leeds Beer week 2018 so I have put together a blog of some of 2017’s events. I pulled together a team of photographers for the week and between us we covered over 50 events in Leeds and the surrounding areas, aiming to create some nice imagery focussed on capturing the atmosphere and people having a great time and enjoying what the Leeds beer scene has on offer at this great annual event. 

A few of my shots are below and highlight some of the best breweries in the UK at the moment, to name a few, Wild Beer Co, Thornbridge, Deya, Kirkstall Brewery, Redchurch, Affinity Brew Co and Wild Childe. 

Can’t wait for this weeks events to start, if you see us out and about shooting pop and say hi.

Thornbridge Brewery

Thornbridge is a brewery who when I see the beers on the bar I pretty much always have to go for. Jaipur on cask was one of the earlier drinks that got me interested in the Beer industry without even realising it. I remember seeing it pop up not just around Leeds, but also when I went back to Derby and Nottingham to see friends and family. So when Hop and Barley asked me to document a visit to Thornbridge to celebrate the brewery’s 10th birthday I was looking forward to it. 

I headed down to the brewery with Nick (Hop & Barley) and Scott (from Little Less Known, who made a video to accompany the visit which is available here). We were welcomed into the main site, and given a full tour of the brewery, popping into the lab, as well as the impressive barrel store. After exploring the main site to really tell the story of where everything started we jumped in the car to visit Thornbridge Hall. Less than 10 minutes drive we pulled up at the original home of Thornbridge the 10bbl kit housed just behind the Hall. As expected it’s a cosy space but has a lovely contrast to the newer and sleeker production facility.
