Port Street Beer House’s regular Meet the Brewer series returns tonight with Yorkshire’s Kirkstall. The monthly events at the Northern Quarter ale mecca feature samples of the guests’ ales, described by a member of the brewing team, plus foodie treats such as local cheese, pies, Eccles cakes and Manchester eggs. Kirkstall has the perfect pedigree, with a brewing heritage dating back to the 12th Century when Cistercian monks founded an abbey on the banks of the River Aire at Kirkstall. Ownership of the brewery has changed hands over the years, with the ‘new’ Kirkstall starting to brew once again on the side of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal. Highlights of this evening are likely to include the thirst-quenching Three Swords, with a ‘delightful citrus nose’, and the ‘full bodied yet beautifully smooth dark’ Black Band Porter.
