RUDOLPH’s Ruin will again be Manorlands’ delight this Christmas.

The seasonal ale, created by an Oxenhope brewery, is being sold across the North in aid of the hospice.

Bridgehouse Brewery is donating 5p from the sale of each pint of the 4.1 per cent ABV bitter to Manorlands.

It has brewed 6,000 pints of Rudolph’s Ruin, topping the 4,500 pints manufactured last year following the success of its debut in 2012.

A brewery spokesman said: “We could have brewed some more last year because it was so popular.”

Rudolph’s Ruin is available at local pubs, including Bridgehouse Brewery’s own Airedale Heifer in Sandbeds, along with the Willow Tree in Riddlesden and the Roebuck in Utley.

Bridgehouse Brewery uses cinnamon sticks, spice and fruit in a manufacture of Rudolph’s Ruin so that it conjures up warm thoughts of Christmas past.

David Halliday, co-owner of Bridgehouse Brewery, will again add to the Manorlands fundraising total by running in the Stoop fell race at Penistone Hill, above, Haworth, in December.

The brewery last year donated a total of £335 to Manorlands from its Christmas fundraising.
