Yorkshire Brewery teams up with kelp grower for unique tasting event

The team at an East Yorkshire brewery are hosting a unique tasting event in conjunction with a North Sea kelp grower.

Representatives from Wold Newton based Wold Top Brewery will be onboard the Southern Star, home to the SeaGrown Centre, on 8th November to talk about the unique beers they produce from kelp harvested by the SeaGrown team.

Wold Top’s Jo Ward and Michelle Savage will talk about the beers they’re brewing from Yorkshire seaweed, Alice Wilkinson from SeaGrown will share information about their unique large-scale seaweed farm and the SeaGrown Centre chef will prepare a selection of snacks to accompany the beer-tasting.

“Since 2018, SeaGrown has been sustainably growing and harvesting seaweed right here on the Yorkshire Coast. This planet-friendly crop can be used for many wonderful things, including beer. In 2022, they invited us to brew a seaweed beer, Hold Fast, for them to serve in their café and restaurant and we have recently brewed a second beer, Down the Hatch. We’re looking forward to tasting these and other Wold Top beers alongside some delicious snacks on board the Southern Star,” said Mrs Ward.

Wold Top was founded in 2003 and is located on the Mellor family farm at Hunmanby Grange. The team use home-grown barley and water from the farm’s borehole to produce a range of award-winning cask, keg and bottled beers that are available throughout Yorkshire and nationwide.

Founded in 2018 by Wave Crookes and Laura Robinson, SeaGrown is Britain’s first large-scale offshore seaweed farm. Their pioneering seaweed farm is producing a sustainable crop year-round – with an ever-expanding range of uses – from foods to agriculture and nutraceuticals to bioplastics.
