What a Corker - #NoPyrahNoParty

Yorkshire County Cricketer Rich Pyrah asked us to brew a beer to celebrate his Benefit (testimonial) Year. We obliged with an easy drinking pale golden brew hopped with refreshing American Cascade hops and named after Richard.

Richard was on hand to serve a few pints although he struggled to keep up with the huge demand for Pyrah! #NoPyrahNoParty            The first brew of Pyrah sold very quickly, particularly in Cricket Clubs, and the next..
