A BUSINESS which showcases beer from God's own county has opened a second shop in Malton.

Yorkshire Ales was set up by Adrian Pettitt, and his wife, Vicky to showcase the ales the region has to offer.

The company, which is based in Snaith, has now expanded to open a second shop above Brass Castle Brewery in Yorkersgate.

Customers to the Malton shop can select from more than 160 different beers, crafted in over 60 breweries across the Yorkshire region.

It also features a ‘Wall of Yorkshire Ale’ along with equipment and advice from the Yorkshire Homebrew company.

Vicky said: “We have a faithful following and now our customers can see us in the Malton region and beyond.

“We are also happy to announce that Yorkshire Homebrew, owned by local hop farmer Matthew Hall, is stocking his homebrew kits with us and, along with the Brass Castle team, will be offering home brewing advice. He will also be hosting tailored evening for home brewers in the future.”

Phil Saltonstall of Brass Castle, said: “It’s a great combination that we have here Malton, Yorkshire’s Food Capital – we are brewing our wide selection of ales, while customers can also try other Yorkshire beers too, stocked by Yorkshire Ales.”

"It really is a one-stop shop for beer lovers.”
