Special beer is brewed in Town’s name

Once again, the Monkey Club in Armitage Bridge, Huddersfield is supporting Town at their annual ‘Monkeyfest’ beer festival by brewing a special beer - this year named ‘Staying Up!’

The beer will debut at the Monkey Fest, which is being held on 6 and 7 July. 

The popular beer festival, now in its 7th year has previously paid homage to Town legend Andy Booth with the ‘Booth 150 Legend Bitter’ and honoured the Club’s link with the Yorkshire Air Ambulance with their ‘Keep It Up’ brew.

Funds generated from the festival and other events across the weekend will go towards the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign once again this year, which raises valuable funds for the life-saving YAA charity as well as Town’s Academy.

Town’s Supporter Partnerships Manager Robyn Deegan commented: “I would like to thank everyone involved in Monkeyfest for supporting the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign once again by brewing a special beer in honour of the Club”.

Monkeyfest begins on Saturday 6 July at noon, going on until 11pm and continues Sunday 7 July at noon until 9pm. Entry is just £2, and will feature a host of live music as well as a barbeque and visitors can enjoy over sixty ales and ciders. 

HTAFC Academy Manager Mark Lillis joined ex-Town players Frank Worthington, Kieran O’Regan and Keith Hanvey to collect £1,000 cheque from Armitage Bridge Club in April for ‘Keep It Up’, to see full details click HERE
