TWO DAYS, 40 CASKS, CHAMPAGNE, CIDER GALORE, NOT ENOUGH TIME!
The following information relates to the 2013 Food Lovers Festival. We will update this page with information for 2014 as soon as we can.
The festival will showcase over 40 casks of real ale and cider. This year the Great Yorkshire Brewery from nearby Cropton, Pickering will again be running the Beer Festival. There will beers on sale that are totally exclusive to this Festival and not available anywhere else in the Country,to really get the taste buds tingling. Not only from their own impressive range, but also from some of the top Yorkshire breweries, and there will be around 40 beers to choose from.
There will be a Limited Edition Festival Brew too on sale, created specially for the Malton Food Festival!
Last year, visitors consumed over 3000 pints of quality ale, so we are sure that with the selection on show over the weekend, the quantity may increase! The Great Yorkshire Brewery, formerly known as Cropton Brewery has been brewing award-winning craft beers for over 25 years, there has however been beer brewed in Cropton since 1613. Their cask beers are still produced under the Cropton brand but the latest investment in the brewery has allowed them to introduce craft keg beers into some of the finest pubs in Yorkshire. All their beers are born and brewed in Yorkshire, it’s real honest beer made with Yorkshire Watter, British Barley, Malt, Yeast and nowt else. There will be tasting notes on all the real ales on offer.
Just launched this year is its stunning Yorkshire Lager, a refreshing and traditional keg-lager brewed just 10 miles down the road in Cropton, and you will find it on sale in its own special “Keg” area, alone with its new Black Out beer, Yorkshire Red lager and Yorkshire Cider. “We’re really chuffed to be supporting the Malton Festival with our new keg bar and will be sourcing a range of the finest Yorkshire Beers from other local friendly brewers,” says Jo Taylor, co-owner of the Great Yorkshire Brewery. There will be a Limited Edition Festival Brew too on sale, created with the expert help of Andrew Pern and James Mackenzie, two of our best known Yorkshire chefs.
