Booths chooses new Little Valley products to enter stores in August


Little Valley Brewery has announced that three of its beers have entered Boothssupermarkets this month – Tod’s Blonde and Python IPA will be available year-round, with Stage Winner available for spring/summer and Vanilla Porter for autumn/winter.

The three new beers will sit alongside Little Valley’s Withen’s Pale Ale (ABV 3.9%), which mixes hints of spice, orange and citrus, giving a delicious dry bitter finish and is available for £1.95.

All four of the bottle-conditioned beers will be available in 500ml bottles.

Little Valley Brewery, based in Hebden Bridge, launched the new lines on 1st August with an in-store tasting at the Booths store in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. The beers bring a variety of flavours to the shelves of Booths, Tod’s Blonde (ABV 5.0%) is a bright yellow blonde ale with a pleasant malty taste and a smooth bitter finish and Python IPA (ABV 6.0%) is a straw coloured, double hopped, original IPA – both will be available for £2.39 a bottle.

Stage Winner (ABV 3.5%), is a light and refreshing pale ale, brewed in celebration of Brian Robinson, the pioneer of British Cycling and will be available for £2.19.

The Vanilla Porter (ABV 4.5%) is a rich and lightly roasted dark coloured ale with subtle hints of vanilla and liquorice and will be joining the range later this year. All of Little Valley’s beers are brewed with 100% organic agricultural ingredients and the brewery is approved by both the Soil Association and the Vegan Society.

Sue Cooper, co-owner of Little Valley Brewery, said: “It is fantastic for us to be able to introduce these products to Booths and share them with beer fans in the North. Booths was named Independent Retailer of the Year in this year’s The Grocer Gold Awards so it is an honour to be working so closely with them. We are sure that the new product lines will be a huge success.”

Booths beer buyer, Pete Newton, said: “We have worked with Little Valley Brewery for some time, due to the fine quality of their beers. We are proud to work with lesser known Northern breweries and to recognise and celebrate their Northern excellence.”
