Breweries launch Lancashire beer bundle

A new celebratory case of beers championing the diversity of the county's breweries has been launched ahead of Lancashire Day (November 27).

The Best of Lancashire has been created by Burnley-based Moorhouse’s Brewery and is now available to buy online until the end of December.

The Best of Lancashire covers all types of beer to suit all tastes including pale and bitter ales, a Belgian Blonde, IPAs, and stouts.

As well Moorhouse’s Blonde Witch and Pendle Witches Brew, the 12-pack boasts beers from nine other brewers - Accidental Brewery, Avid Brewing Co, Beer Brothers Brewing Co, Chain House Brewing Co, Crankshaft Brewery, Farm Yard Ales, Northern Whisper Brewing Co, Problem Child Brewing and Rivington Brewing Co.

Antonia Price, marketing manager of Moorhouse’s Brewery, said: "The last 18 months has been a very tough time for the brewing trade, so we wanted to use Lancashire Day as a way of celebrating the real talent that is right here in the county.

"Lancashire boasts some of the most innovative small breweries in the whole of the UK so it’s fantastic to bring them together for the very first time. The Best of Lancashire is a true representation of the county’s brewing expertise and we are proud to bring it to the public."

In the spirit of Lancashire Day, Moorhouse’s has also teamed up with East Lancashire Railway to create a brand new and limited edition 4.5% pale ale called The Flying Hopsman. The beer was brewed on Moorhouse’s pilot kit meaning only 288 pints of The Flying Hopsman have been produced.
