Yorkshire Wolds brewery launches a range of limited edition beers

Brewery Manager and Wold Top Director, Alex Balchin with the first three Viking inspired beers

The team at a Yorkshire Wolds brewery has launched a range of limited edition beers for people to enjoy at home.

Each month, Wold Top brews a different Viking inspired beer that is available exclusively online and as part of its monthly bottled beer subscription offer.

The third of the Wold Newton based brewery’s limited edition bottlings in the 2021 Vikings series is Thor.

“Thor’s deep amber colour is reminiscent of the red hues in the God of Thunder’s hair and beard. It’s a delicious balance of biscuity crystal malts and Mystic and Minstrel hops with notes of orange,” said Brewery Manager, Alex Balchin.

“Our first two Viking beers, Odin and Freyja were very popular, so we’re hopeful that people looking for something different to enjoy at home will want to try Thor and the forthcoming limited edition beers.

“Hopefully, people will also be able to enjoy the Viking beers in pubs before too long.”

Thor (4.5% vol.) is gluten free and suitable for vegans. It is available online at and costs £2.04 for a 500ml bottle. It also features in the monthly beer bottle club subscription that includes three Viking beers plus 9 other Wold Top core and seasonal beers for £32.50 per month, and in the mini cask subscription.

Wold Top is located on the Mellor family farm at Hunmanby Grange. The team use home grown barley and water from the farm’s borehole to produce a range of cask, keg and bottled beers that are available throughout Yorkshire and nationwide.
