What else we do

Socials & Events

We organise regular open meet-ups at bars and other events in Harrogate and Knaresborough, and across Yorkshire. We also host occasional one-off and pop-up events across the town.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page or Twitter feed for details.


Co-founder Rachel has her own beer blog Let’s Beer It For The Girls – a collaborative platform featuring the voices of women from across the North of England. Rachel is also Editor of and writer for The Harrogate Review, and is a guest writer for a range of publications as opportunities arise. Read her article for CAMRA’s What’s Brewing publication.

Rachel also contributed to a major BBC article on sexism in the beer industry.

We collaborate with other awesome folk who share our goals and values, and we welcome the opportunities to get involved. If you’re cooking up something exciting and feel we might have a place, contact us at info@wotfest.com.

Beer advocacy

In January 2018 Rachel was Local Champion for Harrogate and Knaresborough in the name of #Tryanuaryan initiative set up to encourage beer fans to support independent breweries, pubs, bars and other retailers during what can be a challenging month for the industry.
