Pendle Witches Brew, produced by Moorhouse’s Brewery, proved the most popular beer in the ‘battle of the brewers’ night, at The Mockbeggar Hall.
Pub manager Mike Hall hosted the evening, attended by eight different local breweries mostly from the north-west, where customers could vote for their favourite pint.
More than 350 votes were cast, at the Moreton pub, with Burnley-based Moorhouse’s full malty flavoured beer (5.1% ABV) winning the title.
West Yorkshire-based Ossett Brewing Company Limited’s Excelsior beer, a strong pale ale (5.2%) coming second, with the golden ale Liverbird Ale (4.3%) by Liverpool’s Robert Cain Brewery finishing in third place.
Customers were able to sample all eight ales on offer, before casting their vote.
The other beers were from Peerless Brewing Company in Birkenhead, Liverpool One Brewery, Stoke’s Titanic Brewery, George Wright Brewing Company from St. Helens and Warrington-based Coach House Brewing Company.
