Rooster’s takes Daleside under its wing

Rooster’s have announced the acquisition of Daleside Brewery, their Harrogate neighbours, in a move that allows Eric Lucas and his fellow shareholders to step down and enjoy retirement.

Existing customers won’t notice any day-to-day changes at Daleside, with the business continuing to operate as a separate company.

The operation of the Daleside business will, in due course, transfer across Harrogate to Hornbeam Park and fill spare capacity at Rooster’s. The two businesses will continue to trade separately within their respective markets, however, with Daleside’s portfolio of beers continuing to be brewed by their existing team and using their own dedicated strain of yeast to maintain the unique flavour of their beers.

Eric Lucas, Daleside Managing Director, said: “I’m delighted that the long-term future of Daleside Brewery, its team and its brands have been secured and will remain in Harrogate with the highly respected and acclaimed Rooster’s Brewing Co.. Being with Daleside has been an astonishing and enjoyable journey. On behalf of myself and my fellow owners, I would like to thank everyone who has contributed and has been part of this great Daleside experience. I’m sure that we’re all looking forward to many pints of both Daleside and Rooster’s beers in the future.”

Triple Point Brewing release Ethel on International Women’s Day

Triple Point Brewing’s latest release is inspired by Sheffield’s legendary Ethel Haythornthwaite – a passionate environmentalist who helped establish the Peak District and founded the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE).

CPRE is celebrating its centennial year this year. And that’s because of Ethel. Her work was incredible, and now we have the beautifully maintained Peak District to show for it.

Ethel, a 4% pale ale, was brewed in collaboration with Sheffield Beer Week and for a great cause too – 15p from each can sold will be donated to support two great organisations:

Ethel is available in Triple Point’s webshop now.

New release from Brew York

“The March Hare will be much the most interesting, and perhaps as this is May it won’t be raving mad – at least not so mad as it was in March.”

March Hare is a 5.5% hazy IPA, generously hopped with Citra, Cryopop, Mosaic and Simcoe, bringing strong fruit flavours of citrus, pine, and stone fruit.

March Hare is available in the Brew York webshop now.

International Women’s Day release from Amity

To celebrate International Women’s Day 2024, Amity Brew Co have teamed up with Duration Brewing to launch In-Visible, a 5.4% Dunkelweizen-style beer that is both a celebration of women and a call to action. Deep mahogany in colour, with enticing aromas of caramelised banana and clove, In-Visible embodies the depth, complexity, and creativity of women everywhere.

Devised and brewed by Verity & Tom from Amity and Miranda from Duration, In-Visible stands as a symbol of solidarity and supports Snehalaya (Home of Love), an Indian charity committed to empowering women and girls by working to end Gender Based Violence providing education, healthcare and rehabilitation projects to those that need it most.

For every can of In-Visible Brew sold, 10p will be donated to supporting Snehalaya’s vital work, something that Miranda Hudson founder of Duration has first hand experience of since joining the charity as a trustee in 2014 after visiting the project in 2009.

Brass Castle kick off their new Legends series

It’s no surprise that the team at Brass Castle are big fans of all things folklore, following their 2018/19 Bigger Picture series exploring the myths and legends of Yorkshire. Where their Bigger Picture series ended behind a Green Man, their new Legends series begins*.

Starting with an 8.4% dry-hopped Belgian-style tripel, this series will explore legends from across the globe, and some appropriately innovative beers!

Popobawa is a 5.6% spiced red ale adorned by a shapeshifting demon that often takes the form of a bat to hunt at night. Spiced with cumin, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, chillies and black pepper, expect abundant aromatics plus a touch of heat, balancing perfectly against the rich red malt sweetness.

*There’s no hidden treasure at the end of a trail this time, but share with them your favourite legend and if they use it in the series, you’ll earn yourself a healthy share of the resulting beer.
