Little Valley celebrated its New Look and the launch of its eighth bottle conditioned ale – the ‘Python IPA’ – on Friday 22nd July.
Deputy Mayor and Mayoress of Calderdale and Mayor of Hebden Royd were at the brewery to open the event which was attended by over 100 representatives from the brewing industry including local businesses. Council dignitaries spoke of how Little Valley had done wonders for Calderdale in attracting people to the area – with most of its beers named after local places and landmarks: Withens Pale Ale, Cragg Vale Bitter, Tod’s Blonde, Hebden’s Wheat, Stoodley Stout and Moor Ale.
World renowned beer writer Roger Protz, Guest Speaker at Little Valley remarked on the high quality of ale being produced by the brewery. Mr Protz also commented on the ‘stand out’ appeal of Little Valley’s new bottle labels and pump clips.
The Python IPA is to feature on Mr Protz blog as his ‘Beer of the Month’ for August. www.beer-pages.com/blog.html
