Elland Brewery Facing Liquidation

Despite being crowned brewers of CAMRA’s 2023 Champion Beer of Britain, and earlier this week taking second place at CAMRA’s Great British Beer Festival Winter 2024 with their 1872 Porter, Elland Brewery are facing liquidation with a virtual meeting of creditors taking place on February 16th.

The brewery was founded as Eastwood and Sanders Fine Ales in 2002, after the merging of The West Yorkshire Brewery and The Barge and Barrel Brewing Company. It was renamed Elland Brewery in 2006.

Northern Monk to host International Women’s Day Brewing Careers Advice Event

This International Women’s Day (8th March, 4pm – 7pm), a team of Northern Monk staff are hosting an evening of career advice. They’ll be telling you all about the operation of running a brewery, from brewing to safety operations to designing our cans, and will highlight careers in beer that you might not have thought of.

As this is an IWD event it is open to anyone who identifies as a woman and all ages. A complimentary can of their IWD beer will be available for anyone over the age of 18, with a soft drink alternative for those under 18.

This event is free to attend but tickets are required and are available here.

Horsforth Brewery Stretches Crowdfunding Target

The machine that Horsforth Brewery are looking to invest in will greatly extend their canning capabilities – enabling them to can much much faster and at a reliable level which opens up a number of opportunities for them that they’ve not previously been able to take advantage of. The original round of crowdfunding got off to an absolute flyer and so, to help buy some additional parts, they have stretched the original £15k target up to £25k. In return for your donation there are some great rewards, including discounts on delicious beer! You can support them here.

New Stout from Abbeydale Brewery

Irish Stout, from Abbeydale Brewery in Sheffield’s Salvation Series is their latest stout release. At 4.5% it’s the perfect balance of bitter and sweet, and features a smooth, roasted malt character and soft chocolate flavours, sitting alongside subtle hints of coffee and just a crumb or two of burnt toast. Sessionable and more-ish.
