Happy Birthday to The Sparrow Bier Cafe

I recently posted a short piece on The Sparrow, a bar local to me and one I rather like to drink beer in.  Mark asked if I would spread the good word about their upcoming first birthday celebrations.

It’s almost a year since their debut appearance and in that short time have gained well deserved recognition in The Guardian’s Top 10 UK Craft Beer Bars as well as winning Bradford CAMRA’s Pub Of The Year 2012.  To celebrate this and to say thank you to their customers, they have extended an invitation to join them and enjoy a beer or two.


May 16th (from 11:00am) to May 20th (until they politely ask you to leave).


Erm? if you don’t know this, I’m not going to tell you.  Oh go on then: 32 North Parade, Bradford, BD1 3HZ.

The ambitious owners have been busy brewing two special beers in collaboration with Saltaire Brewery.  They will also be cutting the ribbon on two new keg lines on their bar and have bought in some special beers from their favourite breweries.

Our two birthday beers that we brewed with Saltaire Brewery – Dunnock American IPA & Black Throat Black IPA. Plus beers from some of our favourites including Quantum, Red Willow, Buxton, Kirkstall, Magic Rock, Ilkley and Hawkshead!

Boon Kriek, Sierra Nevada Ruthless, Nogne O Two Captains plus more!

Dogfish Head Red and White, Flying Dog Wildeman and Schneider Nelson Sauvin.

Mark tells me that there is more to be announced! So keep an eye on their Twitter account @thesparrowbd1 and their Facebook page.

I’ll be sneaking out of class at the European Beer Bloggers conference to try the Saltaire beers! Cheers!

Please let me know what you think of my post. Thanks.
