Chris Milton and Dave Mortimer (centre) at Eagles Crag Brewery, Robinwood Mill, Todmorden following the presentation of two awards by members of CAMRA Halifax and Calderdale on Monday 27th November 2017. The awards were presented following the successes of Pale Eagle at the 2017 Calderdale Beer and Cider Festival in late September. Pale Eagle won the Pale Ale of the Festival Award and the Bronze Award in the Beer of the Festival Competition. The ale proved extremely popular at the Festival and this is a magnificent achievement for Chris and Dave who have only been brewing commercially for one year. Well done lads!
John Hartley (Joint Beer Festival Organiser) presents Tom, Chris and Dan of Eyes Brewing with their Speciality Ale of the Festival Award at Whitelocks Ale House in Leeds on Wednesday 22nd November 2017. The award was presented for Summer Schops (6.2%) which accumulated a large number of customer votes when served at the Calderdale Beer and Cider Festival at Hebden Bridge Town Hall on the 28th-30th September 2017.
We are delighted to announce the Pub of the Year Award for 2017. Once again strong candidates made it a difficult choice but I’m sure you would agree that the The Cross Keys, Siddal make a deserving winner. Not just well kept beer but the atmosphere created by Hugh and Ruth has kept customers returning again and again to this pub that is away from the centre of Halifax. We will be making the presentation on Wednesday 29th March at 8.00 pm.
