Briggs Signature Ales and Mallinsons news

This weekend sees a couple of monumental events in the careers of both Briggs and Mallinsons beers.

It is the first anniversary of Briggs Signature Ales, and to celebrate the event what better way to do it than take over the bar at the Star, in company with his collegues at Mallinsons. This will happen tomorrow night (Saturday 20th) from 7 p.m. We are promised some special beers unique to the event from each brewery. Congratulations Nick!

And, just in time for Christmas, Mallinsons will be opening a bottle shop at their Lockwood Road brewery. It will open from Monday 22nd December between 10am and 4pm. At present it is cash only, and they ask you to be patient in their answering of the door, it depends where they are in the brewery. Guess where I will be at 10.05 on Monday!

A quick plug for another bottle shop, please? Dan Tasker of Bridestones Brewery, Hebden Bridge has opened a bottle shop in that town (on Market Street). He has some very interesting beers, some of which are very rarely seen in Yorkshire. Oh yes - and Mallinsons beers are well represented. It really is like being a kid in a sweet shop!

It's situated between the Old Gate pub, and Yorkshire's first, and increasingly impressive, community pub, the Fox and Goose, both of which are well worth a visit.
