Another New West Yorkshire Brewery

We have been informed by 'Bloke from Hull', strange how he gets to know things before we do over here, that another new brewery has opened in the county. This one is called 'Landlords Friend' and is based in Mytholmroyd. Very little else is known about them except they apparently brew two beers; Mr Smith and Mr Marshall.

It is rumoured that they are available at Milans in Halifax, which again is a bit of a surprise because I have never associated them with real ale in the past. As always, we will keep our ear to the ground and keep you up to date with any further details.

True to form the bloke from Hull comes up trumps yet again. The brewery is the brainchild of Chris Holroyd who owns Milans and also Kershaw House at Mytholmroyd. He has been brewing for a couple of months and his beer is available at Milans in Halifax. Mr Smith is a 3.7% session bitter, Mr Marshall is a light 3.8% beer. No doubt on of our intrepid team will try them soon and update further.

The brewery has currently five brews available :- Mr Marshall 3.8% a light lager style beer, Mr Smith 3.7% the 'session beer', Frank's Third Leg 4.2% a full flavoured bitter, Jim the Wing 4.3% a Oat flavoured bitter, & Mr Hough 4.8% a dark malty bitter, all available at Kershaw House where you can also look at the new brewery. The beers are so far booked into The Triangle Beer Festival, The Otley Beer Festival, and The Ikley Beer Festival.
I am impressed with the brewing system and its results !
