A top tipple from a Craven brewery is being showcased at a leading festival in London.

Cross Hills-based Naylor’s Brewery is taking part in the Great British Beer Festival, the flagship event of the Campaign for Real Ale.

More than 800 beers from the UK, plus brews from as far afield as America and Germany, are on offer at the event, which runs at Olympia until Saturday.

More than 55,000 people are expected to visit the festival over its five days.

“There really has never been a better time to discover real ale,” said CAMRA’s Mike Benner. “We have over 1,000 breweries in the UK producing more than 5,000 different beers.

“The choice is so great that this year we have taken the decision to feature just a single beer from most breweries.”

Naylor’s brewery, based at Station Road, has put forward its Cravenbrau.The 3.8 per cent ABV ale is brewed using lager malt along with traditional ale malt.

“We also use German hops more commonly found in a lager to give a clean, crisp, refreshing pint,” said a spokesman.

“Following the maturation period, the beer is cold filtered and bottled. This process removes the sediment, without affecting the flavour of the beer.”

Brothers Stephen and Robert Naylor began brewing in 2001 at The Old White Bear public house in Cross Hills.

In 2006 they decided to concentrate on producing beers and the brewery has been at its current site for about six years.
