BURNLEY brewery Moorhouse’s has rolled out a summer special for July.

Weaver’s T Ginger is the sixth seasonal ale created at the new multi-million pound tower brewery, and pays tribute to the town’s rich textile heritage.

The late 19th century saw Burnley become the most important cotton-weaving centre in the world, with the focus on production in the Weavers’ Triangle.

With production capacity now trebled to more than 1,000 barrels a week, the North West’s leading dedicated cask brewer can now turn out special brews each month.

Managing director David Grant said: “To launch the new brewery, we created new recipes to supplement our famous five core brews.

“This one is particularly appropriate to our ambitious expansion – giving a nod to a time when Burnley boomed in the golden age of cotton.

“Just the stuff to refresh thirsty mill workers, we believe that Weaver’s T Ginger will be warmly welcomed by today’s casks ale drinkers as a delicious summer brew.”

Brewing commenced at the new brewery in Accrington Road last November, and the £4.2m. brewing complex – with visitor centre and training school – was officially opened last month.
