An East Yorkshire microbrewery is celebrating its tenth anniversary with the launch of a limited edition beer.
Fittingly called Tenner, Wold Top Brewery’s anniversary ale is a pale, straw coloured bitter with floral, citrus and lightly spiced notes that is brewed using home and Wolds grown barley and water from the farm’s borehole.
Available exclusively on draught in pubs, hotels and restaurants, Tenner was brewed to celebrate the success of the brewery that has grown to become one of the North’s leading microbreweries. Wold Top Brewery was founded in 2003 out of a need to diversify from farming and in that first year, the business brewed 100 gallons a week with no paid staff. Today, the brewery employs a team of 15, brews over 3,000 gallons a week and sells its award winning beer worldwide.
Brewery owner Tom Mellor is proud to reach such a milestone; “Thanks to our loyal customers and a great brewery team, we have been able to grow sales of Wold Top Brewery regionally, nationally and internationally and support other small businesses and provide employment for local people along the way.”
Brewery highlights over the last decade include numerous brewing and business awards, being shortlisted twice in the Sainsbury’s Great British Beer Hunt, promoting the Wolds at the Hockney exhibition at London’s Royal Academy, hosting the Moonbeams Wold Top Folk Festival, supporting arts and music festivals and welcoming the fourth generation of the Mellor family into the business.
More recently, Wold Top Brewery was invited to brew beer for a Yorkshire themed Chelsea Flower Show Garden – ‘As Nature Intended’ by award winning garden designer, Jamie Dunstan.
