It?s well documented that pubs tend to feel the pinch in times of economic hardship as people economise by drinking at home, so a Yorkshire coast brewery has lent its support to the region?s on trade by brewing a special cask ale that?s only available in pubs.
600 acre bitter is the latest ale from award-winning Wold Top Brewery,based at Wold Newton near Driffield.? Brewed to a traditional recipe, it is a hoppy ale with a long, dry aftertaste whose depth and flavour profile belie its low alcohol content (3.7%).
Brewery owner Tom Mellor explains how the beer got its name;
?It was our 600th brew on a 600 acre farm - it had to be celebrated!? It follows in the tradition of my favourite and our flagship ale, Wold Top Bitter and satisfies the public?s desire for low alcohol beers that don?t sacrifice flavour.
We decided that 600 acre bitter would only be available to pubs and hotels as a thank you for their support over the six years since we founded the brewery and we have been very encouraged by the success - we?re now onto our second brew.?
The launch also coincides with the? relaunch of York CAMRA?s (Campaign for Real Ale) LocAle initiative. The idea of ?LocAle' is to encourage pubs to stock at least one locally-produced real ale with the aim to improve the local economy and knowledge for pub goers about which beers are brewed locally.
For details about the pubs and hotels selling 600 acre bitter, please call the brewery on 01723 982222 or ask at your local pub.
