Brewery accounts manager, Kate Balchin said: “We are delighted to support the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail that passes within 1.3km of the brewery.

“It is a beautiful trail with some amazing views and we’re very fortunate to have it on our doorstep.

“Wolds Way is an award winning pale ale that is brewed from home-grown Maris Otter malt, Goldings and Cascade hops and the farm based brewery’s own pure, chalk-filtered water.

“It is a refreshing ale with a fruity top note and an ABV of four per cent.”

National Trails officer Malcolm Hodgson, who is responsible for the Yorkshire Wolds Way, is delighted with the collaboration.

He said: “We are very grateful to Wold Top Brewery for their continued support of the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail. The valuable funds raised from the sale of beer will be used to maintain and support the trail.”

The ale is available now on draught in pubs along the trail and a limited edition 500ml bottle will be available direct from the brewery shop and website, and from selected local retailers in May.

The Yorkshire Wolds Way opened in 1982 and is one of 16 National Trails throughout the UK.

It was the 10th National Trail to be launched by the Countryside Commission (now Natural England) and now enjoys over 78,000 visitors every year.
