The Black Rock
The ceramic tiled exterior give the Black Rock a distinctive look and research shows that it was originally a Melbourne Ales (Leeds) public house.
Kelham Island Easy Rider was served through a sparkler, to give a creamy head, for the reasonable charge of £1.30.
Wakefield Beer Exchange
A conveniently placed pedestrian crossing makes it easy to reach Wakefield Beer Exchange on the north side of Bull Ring, opposite the Black Rock.
Wakefield Beer Exchange is associated with The Revolutions Brewing Co and many of the beers served at the bar have been obtained by beer exchanges with this brewery, hence it's name.
Northern Alchemy and dAt bAr brewed in Newcastle.
Google map above shows the position of the two bars. Click on the link to see photos of places passed on the way from Wakefield Westgate station.
I will try and time my next visit to Wakefield for after 4pm when the majority of pubs open. However, an earlier start would give me a welcome opportunity to revisit the Black Rock and Wakefield Beer Exchange!
