PREPARATIONS are in full swing for this year’s Otley Beer Festival.

The 2019 fundraising event takes place at Otley Rugby Club from noon to 11pm on Friday, November 22 and Saturday, November 23.

Some 60 real ales, seven key keg beers and 12 varieties of cider and perry are set to be on offer this time, along with soft drinks. Food and live music will also be available on both days.

A £10 ‘starter pack’ will be available on the door which includes admission along with a programme, a commemorative glass and £6 of beer tokens. The beer list for this year, meanwhile, is set to be announced shortly.

Since 2002 organisers Otley RATS have raised £98,500 for Otley Parish Church and charities. Visit for more.
