Support scheme launched to help independent breweries across Yorkshire
North Yorkshire’s Crooked Brewing has started the Small Brewery Project to bring together small independents, combining their expertise in a bid to reach a wider customer base and new stockists.
The project also hopes to offer support and income as they begin their recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thirteen breweries already signed up to the roster including York’s Another Beer, Cropton’s C84 Brewing and Leeds’s Horsforth Brewery.
Church Fenton-based Crooked Brewing’s managing director, Steve Dawson, said: “Our aim is to bring forward the unsung heroes of the brewing world and to champion breweries who don’t routinely feature in your local off license. It makes a big difference to the small, independent producers you are supporting, that you will be drinking their beers and telling other people about it.
“The more people who are interested in it, the more it will grow.”
