An award-winning brewery has moved into its new home in Ryedale.
Brass Castle Brewery, formerly based in Pocklington, is now brewing from Yorkersgate, Malton.
Phil Saltonstall, founder of the business, said: “We are thrilled to be moving to Malton which offers us a central location and larger premises. Malton being hailed as ‘Yorkshire’s Food Capital’ has also helped our decision to relocate to this busy market town.”
He added: ‘Brass Castle has, to date, been a ‘nanobrewery’, producing craft beers in casks and bottles, using traditional techniques. From the outset, our beers have scooped awards around the country. As our products have become more well-known, we have needed to secure a larger site with a good road network nearby. The location in Yorkersgate is ideal.’
Brass Castle has been awarded numerous prizes for its beers, including wins at York, Birmingham, Peterborough, Huddersfield and Guisborough beer festivals. Most recently, its Sunshine IPA was named overall champion beer for the northeast of England 2013 by the Society of Independent Brewers Association.
Business partner Ian Goodall said: ‘It’s important to us that people can come and see the beer production process. We hope to open the brewery to the public in the spring, as the premises will include a shop, brewery tap and reception.”
