TWO Keighley-district breweries have teamed up to produce a new ale.

Goose Eye and Wishbone breweries have collaborated to launch Juicy Goosey.

And the 3.7 per cent pale-coloured ale is already going down a treat with pubs and customers.

The initiative follows the success of a previous joint venture between the two brewers, when they combined to create a 6.2 per cent India pale ale called Not Apache On Chinook – a play on the name of Goose Eye's best-selling Chinook Blonde.

Joe Atkinson, Goose Eye head brewer, says: "After the success of Not Apache On Chinook, myself and Adrian (Chapman) at Wishbone Brewery decided we should team up again.

"Juicy Goosey is available in several of the district's pubs, and has become a hit.

"It will also be available at the Goose Eye Brewery Tap in Crossflatts – open Fridays and Saturdays – for the next few weeks, and a barrel of it will appear on the bar at a Wishbone tap and pizza day on Saturday (March 30) between noon and 7pm."

Goose Eye Brewery, founded in the hamlet from which it takes its name, is now based on the Castlefields industrial estate at Crossflatts.

Wishbone Brewery is situated at Chesham Street, in Keighley.
