THE micro brewery at Keighley's Timothy Taylor was put to good use to produce a special ale for this year's Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Beer and Music Festival.

The 150th year anniversary ale will only be available at the attraction's festival which runs from October 19 to 22.

This drink is a 5.3 per cent proof "traditional, rich and complex brown ale."

A spokesman for Timothy Taylor explained: "We have a good relationship with the railway, and we work with them.

"They asked us if we could brew them something for the 150th anniversary and we were quite happy to oblige.

"Andrew Leman is our head brewer, and we have four other brewers, but they all take a collaborative approach.

"Our micro brewery, which we launched last summer, gives us a lot more flexibility to create bespoke, smaller volumes such as this.

"The beer we've brewed for the railway is very much aligned to the Timothy Taylor taste. It's flavoursome and has a lot of depth."
