British Pie Week – Gluten free Cask Ale and Homemade Pies at The Angel

Great British Pie Week begins on Monday 2nd March and the Angel at Holmesfield will again be marking this exciting event in style. Delicious homemade pies with a variety of fillings will be available on a specials board all week.  Nothing compliments homemade pie more than a real cask ale, the twist is – all the pies and one cask ale will be gluten free.

Owner of  the Angel Mandy Drewery said  “it is very exciting, we have been catering for coeliacs for over 3 years and at last we can serve a gluten free cask ale alongside our food offer, this  is just great”.  “ Wold Top Brewery have crafted a truly wonderful ale” said Mandy “ but, its usually only available in bottles.”  “After speaking to the Rob at the East Yorkshire Brewey and explaining how difficult it has been to source a gluten free cask ale they are now going to provide us with Against The Grain in barrels for British Pie Week”.

Wold Top – Against The Grain winner of the SIBA North Gold Award for speciality beers has proven to be the best tasting gluten free beer in many taste tests. Made from lager malt, maize, hops and yeast, it is a premium full flavoured bitter beer with a good creamy head, refreshing bitterness and citrus aftertaste.  The gluten free content is certified to be well below the required codex standard of 20ppm.
