Stellar new beer for the new year from Yorkshire Coast brewery

A Yorkshire coast brewery is heralding the start of the new year with a limited edition beer inspired by constellations in East Yorkshire's ‘Big Skies'.

Wold Newton based Wold Top Brewery has launched a limited-edition cask beer called Orion's Belt to coincide with Tryanuary, a nationwide campaign to bolster support for the beer industry in January.

The brewery is one of the many bodies involved in the Tryanuary campaign which encourages people to support independent breweries, bars, pubs and other drinks retailers during one of the typically quieter months in the brewing industry.

Orion's Belt is a 3.9% ABV bright crisp beer that is light in colour with an inviting floral and citrus nose. It is brewed using Chinook and Cascade hops with pale ale, lager, maize and wheat malts. It is available in pubs and restaurants throughout Yorkshire during January.

Wold Top Brewery Manager, Alex Balchin said: "We love to create new and different limited-edition beers and this year our inspiration comes from the fabulous Big Skies that we enjoy at Hunmanby Grange.

Orion's Belt is a beer to banish the winter blues and remind people that spring is coming. We hope it will appeal to people and pique their interest sufficiently to have a taste and join in with Tryanuary, which we're supporting because it's an excellent campaign.

"It'd be great to hear what people think of the beer and let us know their thoughts via social media where they can use the hashtag #Tryanuary to help spread the word."

Since its launch in 2015, Tryanuary has caught the attention of beer lovers, brewers, retailers and publicans alike.

Largely garnering support on social media, it was established by beer blogger, Andy Heggs and brewery owners Stuart Swann and Shane Swindells.

This year it is being run by Tom Stapley, the founder of Craft Beer Hour - a designated hour on Twitter that takes place weekly to allow users to contribute to a conversation using the hashtag #CraftBeerHour.

Farm-based Wold Top Brewery brews award winning cask and bottled ales from home and Wolds grown malting barley, hops and pure, chalk-filtered 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.
