Local beer festival to raise funds for YAA & HTAFC

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 ‘Old Leeds Road!’

The beer will debut at Monkeyfest, which is being held on 28 and 29 June 2014. 

The popular beer festival, now in its 8th 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”.

Stephen Hirst, the President of the Monkey Club, added:

"Monkeyfest is lot of hard work, but it’s a great event and we are delighted to be able to support the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign again, as we have done over the last few years. We’ll raise funds for a very important cause – to keep the Yorkshire Air Ambulance in the air. 
“We would like to thank Huddersfield Town for their continued support for us, both in the Sportsman's Evening and Monkeyfest. We have a lot of Season Card holders go in our club and it is great to work in partnership with the football club to help the ‘Keep It Up’ Campaign.” 

Monkeyfest begins on Saturday 28 June at noon, going on until 10pm and continues Sunday 29 June at noon until 9pm. Entry is just £2, and will feature a host of live music as well as a food and visitors can enjoy over sixty ales and ciders.
