A NORTH Yorkshire brewery has secured a contract to supply beer to P&O Cruises newest ship.

Hunmanby-based Wold Top Brewery will supply its Blonde, continental style beer Wold Gold, for the Great British Beer Menu aboard the Britannia.

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 North Yorkshire brewery on board.”

Britannia, P&O Cruises newest ship, is the largest cruise ship designed for the British holiday market and can carry more than 3,600 passengers on holidays throughout Europe and the Caribbean.
