Leeds City – an industrial and commercial capital of West Yorkshire, where nothing reminds of that place, which Charles Dickens once called ‘the most unattractive city of those I have visited’, has always something for everyone to offer. With dozens of respectable hotels in Leeds, luxurious trading centers and monuments of architecture, the city stands out from the crowd with its gloss and charm. Aedestrian areas, a broad variety of bars and clubs, vivid people and healthy atmosphere Leeds is the place you should certainly drop in at once you find yourself in the northern part of England.
Leeds is an extremely attractive city from the standpoint of beer tourism. Depending on the time of year it offers a wide selection of completely different beers. For example, in January, pubs attract people with golden ale Resolution, in March bitter Leeds Special enters local saloons and in September – India Pale ale Monsoon comes to the substitution. The Leeds Brewery is one of the most popular providers of invigorating drink. Its founders, two university friends Michael Brazvell and Sam Moss established a brewery in June, 2007 and since then it successfully delivers over 100,000 liters of seasonal and cask ales a week. The main varieties of beer are bitter ale Leeds Best, Light Pale Ale beer and soft dark Midnight Bell. 12 more beers specifically for each month of the year are produced.
Another young, but fairly well-known brewery is Ridgeside, founded in June 2010. Despite its young age, the company produces five beers: from light lagers to strong dark varieties such as IPA, plus it has already won several awards for the quality of its product.
You will never regret the day you’ve left your place for an adventurous beer trip to the one of the most prosperous city of England. Taking into account the number of serviced apartments Leeds offers, the trip will hardly burn a hole in your pocket.
