All HALLOWS MICRO BREWERY
All Hallows Brewery, named after the local church, is the brainchild of pub owners Vito and Abbie Loggozi.
Abbie's science background and experience as a pharmacy technician gave her the confidence and inspiration to take the lead and breathe new life into the former Goodmanham Brewery.
Located just across the courtyard from the Goodmanham Arms pub, the compact single story building in an absolute gem in micro-brewing terms.
"We got the chance to buy the old brewery a couple of years ago," smiles Abbie, who clearly relishes the challenge of creating real ales of distinction.
Advised by Vito on the type of ales to produce, Abbie honed her skills by attending a brewing masterclass in the north east of England.
The result was Peg Fyfe - a dark mild. At 3.6 abv it sells at just £2.25 a pint. Already a big hit with regulars, the beer is named after the 17th century witch who is thought to have been hanged at gallows hill between Market Weighton & Shiptonthorpe.
Mischief Maker, a traditional copper session beer and Ragged Robyn a dark ruby ale followed as Abbie went from success to success.
With justifiable pride, Abbie said, "These new beers are not only selling in the Goodmanham Arms, but also in other places. We are now supplying other landlords in surrounding areas."
Abbie explained, "We have an eleven gallon set-up and our equipment includes a hot liquor tank, mash tun, copper, heat exchanger, 3 fermenters and conditioning unit.
"Our barley is sourced from the East Yorkshire coastal area - simply because here we grow the best barley in the world for beer making."
"Consistency is achieved because we weigh everything precisely. In fact, we use postage scales and measure to plus or minus 5 grams. All our ingredients are especially sourced for quality."
In addition to Vito and Abbie's input into the enterprise, the couple are grateful for the expert help of Assistant brewer Peter Uttley who is a local man - also with a passion for fine ales.
