Timothy Taylor’s share the secrets to good beer production
What does a pigeon from Yorkshire know about good beer?
The answer goes back to Allan Hey, our head brewer from 1966 to 1995. Allan used to count out exactly 100 grains of barley malt on top of a cask left out in the brewery yard, to see how many of the grains the pigeons would leave uneaten. It was his proven way to see how good the batch was.
Another twenty years on, the way we brew our beer hasn’t changed. We still use the finest Golden Promise barley, a variety normally reserved for malt whiskies. It’s a costly ingredient and difficult to grow, but we think it’s worth it. The proof is in that first sip.
As our farmers know all too well: no pain, no grain.
They say nothing worth having comes easy. Unfortunately for our farmers that’s true of the barley we use to brew our beers. We use a classic variety called Golden Promise, grown to our own unique specification. The biscuity, golden malt it produces is the perfect partner to our natural spring water, and is vital to Landlord’s depth and delicate balance of flavour. It’s also a type of barley that’s notoriously hard to grow, and our exacting specification makes it even more difficult, which makes it a costly ingredient and a real challenge even for experienced farmers.
Luckily we can offer some liquid therapy.
