As the cruise ship Britannia continues on her maiden season in Europe, closer to home, an East Yorkshire brewery is toasting her success.
Wold Newton-based Wold Top Brewery has secured a contract to supply its Blonde, continental style beer, Wold Gold, for the Great British Beer Menu on P&O Cruises newest cruise ship.
In addition to representing Yorkshire in The Great British Beer Menu in Brodie’s pub which comprises 70 different bottled beers, ales and ciders from 56 UK counties including pilsners, ales, stouts, ciders, gluten-free beer and speciality beers, Wold Gold also features on the ‘beer flight’ tasting menu alongside Acorn Brewery’ s Yorkshire Pride and Timothy Taylor’s Landlord.
Brewery Director Gill Mellor is delighted with the listing and said: “This is our first listing on a cruise ship and we’re thrilled that it is such a prestigious vessel. It’s a great honour to be the only East Yorkshire brewery on board.”
Britannia, P&O Cruises newest ship, is the largest cruise ship designed for the British holiday market and can carry over 3,600 passengers on holidays throughout Europe and the Caribbean.
