Wood you believe it? Elland brewery launch new beer

Beerlogo200A new specially brewed golden beer by recent Supreme Champion Beer of Britain winners Elland brewery is being launched at Clifford Champion Beer Festival on Saturday 27th June. The beer is named after an ITV Calendar show hosted by presenter Duncan Wood.  ‘Wood you believe it’ was a current affairs programme that posed the eponymous question to viewers about many varied topics. ‘The issues ranged from the man who couldn’t stop hiccuping to fighting for disabled parking rights,’ explained Duncan.

The media launch was held at The Muse Wetherby where Mike Hiscock, Elland brewery manager said, ‘It’s a Golden premium ale brewed using 5 English malts. Well hopped with American Chinook and Cascade to give a long clean bitter finish and a citrus, tropical fruit flavour and aroma.’

Elland brewery and The Muse are annual sponsors of Clifford Champion Beer Festival and both are key players in Britain’s ‘Beer Revolution’ currently sweeping through the country. This revolution is the theme of this year’s charity focused festival, featuring 30 beers (cutting edge craft beers, national champion real ales, five festival special ales and craft bottled beers) plus champion ciders and a variety of lagers. Brand new this year is a Prosecco Wine Bar and delicious festival food by the renowned purveyors of food and craft beer Stew and Oyster, soon to open in nearby Boston Spa. Five talented live bands will play from noon to the 11pm closure at this highly regarded festival.

This is the confirmed beer list but as always is subject to availability and may change slightly.
