Customer pressure wins and we have agreed finally to introduce White Prussian to keg. Trials are currently underway and the product after intense testing will be in a few selective accounts from next week for the purposes of customer feedback. Initial tastings have been very successful but we will await the results of the paying customer before committing fully to increased output. Check the site to see where you might taste it, with the opportunity to win some brewery merchandise as a thank you for providing some insightful feedback.
Next Saturday (June 24) sees the return of one of the best village beer festivals on the circuit, when no fewer than 30 cask ales will be served at Clifford Village Hall. As village events go, this is a pretty impressive number. And unlike many festivals where beer is served directly from barrels racked up behind the bar, here all the ales will be cooled to the correct temperature by a professional quality system and dispensed through handpumps with sparklers, to present them foaming with a nice creamy head. Event spokesman Richard Coldwell says: “Previous experience tells us that local drinkers don’t like flat beer drawn directly from the cask so we’ve teamed up with a professional cellar services company to give our customers the sort of pint they get in their local pub – there’ll be no flat pints here!” Among the beers you can try will be Last Over, which has been specially created by Elland Brewery to celebrate the sporting achievements of Ryan Sidebottom, who is retiring from professional cricket this year. The Yorkshire and England star is a long-time supporter of the festival and has occasionally brought along his equally famous dad Arnie, who played both professional cricket and football in the 1970s and 80s. Says Ryan: “I’m really pleased to be connected with Clifford Beer Festival. It’s a fantastic charity raising money for local causes.”

A new Twist on an old champion
Elland’s 1872 Porter is a mighty beer with a mighty reputation and arguably one of the most decorated ales in British brewing’s recent history. With a slew of brewing accolades under its belt including 3 overall champions of Camra’s winter ale festival and the coveted Supreme Champion Beer of Britain.
1872 Porter boasts a stunning flavour profile of dark chocolate and coffee with a warm satisfying finish from its complex malt base and the finest English hops.
Elland now brings you the opportunity to try this remarkably complex beer on a whole new level, taking a sample of lovingly crafted 1872 porter and maturing it in a hogshead barrel previously home to a Sherry Cask Reserve 10 year single malt.
This limited bottling of 1872 porter benefits from the depth of flavour imparted from Oak cask that a fine single malt and a quality sherry that have both called home. With a slight twist of spice and whiskey warmth this is a beer to truly be savoured on a cold winter’s night with good company and some excellent strong cheeses. The accompanying bottle has been bottle aged from the same brew and allows you to experience the difference the Oak, Sherry and Whiskey have made to this already stunning beer.
Available in a 500ml bottle and a gift pack coupled with a 500ml bottle of the original award winning 1872 porter and an Elland Brewery Branded glass designed to give the best flavour and aroma from both of these top quality beers at a price of £15.00 collected from the Brewery.
We are very pleased that our 1872 Porter reached the final at CAMRA GBBF. Unfortunately we did not win, losing out to Binghams Vanilla Stout, brewed in Berkshire.
Our 1872 Porter is arguably the most decorated beer in recent British brewing history. A rich, complex, dark ruby beer from a Victorian recipe. It has an old port nose, coffee and bitter chocolate flavours from four malts including finest Maris Otter and English hops. Supreme Champion Beer of Britain. Three times National Winter Ales Champion.
Former regular at the Junction in Castleford and most certainly a lover our beers, Janne Lehvonen recently spotted our Blonde in his home country of Finland. Yet another discovery and a reminder of his adopted county of Yorkshire.
Elland Blonde is a 4.0 ABV easy drinking blonde ale. Dry and aromatic yet uncomplicated. Soft bitterness and light citrus notes from a combination of English Progress and American Cascade hops.
We were recently pleased to host a visit from the regulars at the Junction pub at Castleford. Run by Maureen Shaw and Neil Midgley, the pub is known locally, nationally and internationally for being the only pub to serve all the cask beers from its own wooden casks. We are proud that our beers feature frequently at the pub in the wood.
Amongst the beers on offer on the day was our award winning 1872 Porter from a wooden cask.
We are pleased to support the Brewers Pride at Healey, Ossett with their annual Yorkshire Air Ambulance Fund Raising Beer & Music Festival over the weekend of 30th & 31st July. We will be supplying three beers – Nettlethrasher, Beyond the Pale and Chinook. We are donating the Chinook in support of the worthy charity.
Chinook is a golden, single hopped golden session beer at 3.9% ABV with a hint of spice, strong citrus and grapefruit aroma and flavours.
We are pleased to have sponsored and provided two Festival Special Beers in the Wood (casks courtesy of the Junction at Castleford).
The two beers were Gale Force were brewed for and named by ITV Calendar Weather presenter Jon Mitchell and Wood You Believe It (in the wood) brewed for ITV Calendar presenter Duncan Wood.
Gale Force was a 5% IPA easy drinking pale ale brewed with US and NZ hops that give a combination of fruit flavours.
Wood you believe was a 4.6% premium golden bitter with fruity citrus flavours and aroma.
