Old Spot Brewery – Cullingworth

Posted on: November 4, 2009

Today I helped make award winning real ale at the ‘Old Spot Brewery’ in Cullingworth near Keighley.
They have recently Won the Leicester Beer Festival with a Gold for Spot O’ Bother which was also a 1st in the Porter/Stout category.
Please check their beers out when you see them :)

The brew is a pretty hoppy and mainly pale malt with some wheat, name yet to be decided.
Chris has a relaxed attitude to brewing and there’s nothing complex in his brewing process, knowing his process and customers tastes gives him plenty of room to experiment within his brewing experience in creating new ales.

Here’s a Few snaps from today:

I’ve just drunk a bottle of a dark Mild Chris gave me which is well balanced and chocolaty, another bottle of something light is waiting for after though I forget what he called it. They don’t normally bottle their beers as they stick to dealing direct with pubs.
