A WHARFEDALE micro-brewery has celebrated its 20th anniversary.

Dr Paul Briscoe, a PhD level microbiologist, has now been brewing beer in Otley for two decades.

All of his beer is hand-crafted and he focuses on making specialist batches for the local market - often creating specific varieties to help mark special occasions.

Dr Briscoe celebrated Briscoe Brewery’s 20th birthday with a party at the Old Cock, on Crossgate, on Saturday, November 17.

He was joined there by friends and supporters including members of Otley Beer Festival and Otley Pub Club.

Pub club President Greg Mulholland said: “This is a real milestone.”
