East Yorkshire brewery brings back iconic beer as seasonal cask ale

Alex Balchin

An East Yorkshire brewery is reintroducing one of its iconic beers that was last brewed almost a decade ago as one of its cask beers for April. 

Wold Top Brewery’s Keeper’s Light has been brewed as part of the brewery’s seasonal offering of limited edition beers that are available exclusively to pubs, clubs and restaurants. 

Brewery manager Alex Balchin said: “Keeper’s Light is inspired by our love of the coast and brewed in celebration of Flamborough’s iconic lighthouse that’s just ten miles away from the brewery. 

“It is an easy drinking pale golden ale with floral notes. It was very popular when it was part of our range back in 2010 and I expect that it will be equally popular with the younger real ale drinkers who are trying it for the first time.

 “Keeper’s Light is one of a few of our iconic beers that we are reintroducing this year. They include Falling Stone in September, Worts n’Ale in October and Five Wold Rings in December.” 

The second limited edition cask beer for April will be Aphrodite (4 per cent ABV), a golden beer with subtle lemon, sage and honey notes that is named after the ancient Greek goddess who is associated with love, beauty, pleasure, passion and procreation. It is the second of six Greek inspired limited edition cask beers that will be available throughout 2019. 

Farm-based Wold Top Brewery brews cask and bottled ales from home and Wolds grown malting barley, hops and pure, chalk-filtered Yorkshire Wolds water. Its bottled beer is available through the Wold Top website, independent and multiple retailers, farm shops, delis, hotels, pubs and off licences throughout Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
