Todays beer is awarded to a local brewery, who have been in the gluten free game perhaps longer than many of the other beers that have made it into our top 12. Wold Top Brewery, based just outside Driffield in East Yorkshire, is a fairly local brewery to us here in Sheffield, so due to the localness, and their dedication to producing gluten free beers, todays beer goes to Wold Top – Against The Grain.
A bonus of Against The Grain, unlike many other brewers is the beer comes in a 500ml bottle rather than 330ml so it’s almost like drinking a real pint! Wold Top is now a very well known brand in the gluten free beer world, and probably one of the most well known beers we have included – fortunately due to this it’s availability throughout Sheffield is very good and alongside a number of the more traditional pubs, is also available in many supermarkets too alongside bottle shops.
Should you be in Sheffield, you are sure to find this beer in both the Fat Cat & Kelham Island Tavern, both in a very popular area of Sheffield – Kelham Island. Alongside this the Sheaf View in Heeley and the Wellington at Neepsend are also known to stock Wold Top Against The Grain. Unbeknown until only a few weeks ago, is Wold Top also produce this beer on Cask, alongside their other well known Scarborough Fair Ale and should you be in East Yorkshire, it’s not uncommon for Wetherspoon’s to have a selection of these available in both bottle and on cask – so on your next trip to the coast keep an eye out!
