The first ‘battle of the brewers’ event, at the newly opened Poulton-le- Fylde pub, proved a great success.
The Poulton Elk launched the seven-day event with a meet-the-brewer evening.
Gregory Bolton from Coach House Brewing Company, in Warrington, and Anne Jones, from Cumbria based Hawkshead Brewery, are pictured with duty manager Richard Parfitt, at the pub. A full range of ales from both breweries was served throughout the week, with four beers from each producer available at all times.
Cheshire Gold (4.1% ABV), Dick Turpin Premium Bitter (4.2% ABV) and Blueberry Bitter
(5.0% ABV) were among the beers from Coach House, while the Hawkshead range included Lakeland Gold (4.4% ABV), Hawkshead Red (4.2% ABV) and Brodie’s Prime (4.9% ABV).
Duty manager Matt Jones said: “This event was the first of many planned. We hope to stage something similar every two to three months, showcasing different breweries and beers from across the region every time. “The week proved very popular as did the ales from both breweries and it was a great way to launch the new pub to the locals in Poulton.”
