Pretzel anyone?

We wanted to hold an event at The Town Hall as part of the Food & Drink Festival that celebrated local producers, but didn't clash with Calder Food Hub's Meet The Producers event in The Town Hall on Friday 26th October.  With so many independent breweries in the area we thought our very own Oktoberfest was the way to go. We are pleased we were showcasing ale from Slightly Foxed Brewing Company, Little Valley Brewery, Bridestones Brewing, Owenshaw Mill Brewery, Haworth Steam Brewery and cider from The Real Cider Company.  To soak up all that booze, Alison from The Deli and Kaya from Watergate Tearooms collaborated to create a German kitchen in The Town Hall for a day, serving frankfurters, sauerkraut, poppy seed cake and other Germanic specialities; all of which went down a treat.
