A REAL ale house in Halifax has marked its 100th Yorkshire ale with self-titled pint.

Lewins has sold its 100th individual ale from Yorkshire this week and Keighley brewery Bridgehouse made the Lewins 100 to celebrate the achievment.

The beer proved so popular with punters it sold out in a day.

Landlord Karl Saunders is over the moon with the landmark sale as he only took over the pub six months ago.

He said: “We’ve been here six months and in that short space of time we have actually supported over 100 individual beers. The Lewins 100 was our 100th individual ale, which in six months is quite an achievement.

“We only ever sell Yorkshire ale, supporting all the large breweries and a lot of local micro-breweries.

“We don’t have to look any further.

“Beer doesn’t taste as good the further it travels.

“Because we have all these fantastic micro-breweries and Yorkshire ale on our doorstep, it’s coming straight to us and never travelling more than 30 mile at the most.

“We’re getting it as fresh and unspoiled as we can.”
