A KEIGHLEY brewery has helped a Skipton business celebrate its first birthday.

Wishbone Brewery, in Chesham Street, off Dalton Lane, collaborated with the Boat House Bar.

Staff from the Boat House visited Wishbone's Keighley base to create a beer in honour of the bar's first year of trading.

Ian Clarke, who owns the bar with his wife Pamela and daughter Zoe, visited last month along with employee Stan Venn, bar supervisor Annie Fawcett and bar manager John "Spike" Garton.

Adrian Chapman, who set up Wishbone Brewery with his wife Emma in 2015, said: "Ian, Spike, Annie and Stan spent the day getting stuck in with the brew, digging the spent malts out of the mash tun and finally cleaning all the hops out of the copper.

"They are good customers of ours, so we were happy to get together with them to help brew something special.

"The beer, which is called Tiller Pin, is named after part of a narrow boat.

"It's a pale and fruity session ale at 4.2 per cent, hopped with Citra, Cascade and Chinook, and it'll be available from The Boat House and other venues around Yorkshire and Lancashire over the next couple of months."

Beginning on March 24, the Boat House staged its own birthday celebrations which included a singer, a cake, free food and plenty of Keighley-brewed Wishbone beer to start the weekend.

Zoe Clarke said: "The beer has turned out really well. Quite a lot of our regulars have tried it and we've had some very good feedback."
