KEIGHLEY brewery Timothy Taylor's has joined forces with a pub to produce a bespoke beer.

The company has collaborated with Whitelock’s Ale House in Leeds to brew 1715 Stout, whose name pays tribute to the year the hostelry was built.

Whitelock's earned the chance to take part in the link-up after winning a Timothy Taylor's Champion Club draw.

The limited-edition stout will be launched at the pub this Thursday (April 4), and will also be available at the Meanwood Tavern in Leeds and at The Pembury Tavern in London's East End.

Whitelock’s general manager, Beth Templeton, says: "We love Timothy Taylor’s – Landlord is one of our biggest sellers – so when the opportunity arose to brew a beer together we jumped at the chance."

Scott Cameron, senior brand manager at Taylor’s, says: "Whitelock’s Ale House has always been a pub we hold in very high regard. Its place in our Champion Club is testament to the team’s hard work and care of our cask ales."
