The 2012 RIBA Love Architecture Festival was launched in true Yorkshire style with the inspired combination of Beer + Architecture!
RIBA Yorkshire teamed up with DLA Design and Leeds Brewery to bring you the Love Architecture Leeds pub and architecture trails - four walking routes around the city centre highlighting beautiful architecture and magnificent pubs. Wander round Leeds, learn about the buildings and stop for a refresher from Leeds Brewery.
The launch event was hosted by Leeds Brewery's architectural gem the Garden Gate pub – a Grade II* listed Victorian delight in Hunslet.

Leeds Brewery brewed a special architectural ale called "Leeds Mortar." This was sampled in abundance with a side of pie and peas!
