visited by Wakefield CAMRA, Saturday 13th August 2011

The Ridgeside Brewery was founded by Simon Bolderson in the Summer of 2010, and the beers first brewed at the end of June were launched on 18th July at the Bull & Fairhouse, Wakefield, then still known as O'Donoghues. A First Birthday celebration was held at the Junction, Castleford, featuring the full Ridgeside beer range.

The tiny entrance sandwiched between two City & Guilds training units, leads to a Tardis!

This day also included a visit to Kirkstall Brewery.
