Yorkshire brewery wins four awards in two days
When Driffield based Wold Top Brewery was shortlisted in both the Hull Mail and the York Press Business Awards on the same night, the Mellor family had to split up, with Wold Top’s founders Tom and Gill going to York whilst Kate (nee Mellor) and Alex Balchin headed to Hull.
Both the third and fourth generations of the farming family were delighted when Wold Top Brewery was awarded Best Small Business in both the Hull and York awards and then went on to win the overall Best Business award from the York Press.
The following evening, the team went to Scarborough for the inaugural Scarborough News Business Awards and were delighted once more to win the Best Green Business award.
Of the wins, Gill Mellor said: “What an amazing couple of days! We still can’t quite believe it, but we’re very happy and amazingly proud of our great team.”
Wold Top Brewery brews traditional real ale from home and Wolds grown malting barley, the finest hops and pure, chalk-filtered Wolds water.
