The team from Wold Top Brewery are to host a unique tasting event in conjunction with North Sea kelp grower SeaGrown.
Alex Balchin, of Wold Top Brewery, with Hold Fast and Down The Hatch, the two collaborations with SeaGrown
They will be aboard 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 the story behind their unique large-scale seaweed farm, while the SeaGrown Centre chef prepares 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,” said Jo. “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.”
Tickets for the event, which takes place on a boat moored in Scarborough Harbour, cost £20 and include a welcome pint of seaweed beer, snacks, and beer tasters. They are available via Eventbrite.
