Leeds beer drinkers reveal thirst for variety

Punters searching for the perfect pub have revealed one of the main factors that helps them find the ultimate watering hole.

According to a recent Nicholson’s Pubs survey, 60% of potential pub goers see ‘variety’ and an ‘exciting range of beers’ as key considerations when it comes to deciding where to go for a pint.

Nicholson’s Pubs announced the results to mark the launch of their third annual Autumn Beer Showcase, a month-long event championing all things beer. Running from 24th September to 4th November, it will allow hop heads and guests the chance to try some of Britain’s best brews with over 40 special ales and craft beers on offer.

Guests will spot a wide and thirst-quenching range of taps on offer at Nicholson’s Pubs across the UK, with small and famed brewers set to feature prominently throughout the showcase, including the likes of London Brewing Co., WooHa, Siren, Ilkley and Fyne. Beer fans will be happy to hear a number of special ‘Meet the Brewer’ events and tasting evenings will be popping up at specific pubs, giving aficionados the opportunity to discover new flavours and uncover the secrets behind a perfect brew.

Ben Lockwood, beer and cider procurement manager at Nicholson’s Pubs, said: “For the second time this year we’re partnering with some of the finest breweries in the UK to launch a series of Tap Takeovers. Our pubs and guests love being able to discover a full range of beers from one brewery, and it allows us to plan a host of fun and engaging events across the UK to celebrate. Look out for favourites, exclusives, and specials across the next six weeks.”


The team from Ilkley will be holding tastings across Yorkshire during the showcase, and will be popping into Leeds for ‘Meet the Brewer’ events at The Scarborough Hotel. These events will give guests the chance to meet those who created the beers and try out some of their enticing new brews, as well as the popular ‘Mary Jane’ pale sessions ale.
