Thank you to our Farming Folk!

A North Yorkshire micro-brewery have released their latest range of bottled beers in honour of Yorkshire farmers and their families.

Family run Pennine Brewery based in the village of Well on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales have created the ‘Farming Yorkshire’ range as a thank you and in recognition of the work farmers continued to do during the pandemic.

Owner Debbie Clayton said: “The pandemic lockdowns taught us many things, including that we have a huge amount to be grateful for. Based in a rural location and surrounded by beautiful farming landscape, we see how hard our farming communities work each and every day.

“Here at Pennine Brewery, we wanted to shout out to those that dedicate their lives to providing us with what graces our tables up and down the land and so in their honour, we created our latest range to celebrate their work and particularly those in Yorkshire.”

The 18-barrel microbrewery’s new range includes Shepherdess Blonde, a 3.8% ABV light and refreshing pale ale, with a mellow bitterness and citrus notes and Yorkshire Greens, a 3.8% ABV which is a classic Yorkshire recipe using homegrown Yorkshire Hops, Yorkshire water and barley to produce a smooth, malty texture with a bitter-sweet overtone and a hint of spice.

Debbie continues: “Our new Blonde is very delicate and lends itself perfectly to sit alongside a light and fresh summer meal whilst our new Yorkshire Greens has been brewed to be stronger and more powerful and would be great with proper Sunday lunch!”

Founded in April 2013 Penning Brewery was started with the mission to bring people together through their love of beer and they have remained fiercely independent ever since, priding themselves on producing characteristic beers inspired by their surroundings.  The Brewery now supply a number of pubs and wholesalers across the UK, picking up a number of industry accolades and awards along the way. 

The Pennine Brewery team are now preparing for the launch of their third bottled beer in the range, Farmers Festival, which will be launching shortly and has been specifically brewed to be a session ale to be enjoyed in the Autumn months. 

Both Shepherdess Blonde and Yorkshire Greens are available to buy now from farm shops and independent retailers throughout the region as well as online at
