1500th Beer

Posted by admin on June 11, 2014

We are very proud to announce that we have now reached the landmark figure of 1500 different real ales. We have achieved this feat in just three and a half years, since we opened in September 2010. To mark the achievement Elland brewery kindly did a one off brew, which, needless to say went down very well!

We would like to thank all our customers for their continued support. As without you, reaching 1500 different ales in such a short space of time wouldn’t have been possible.

Cheers, and here’s to the next 500 and reaching 2000!

Lee, Linda and all the staff at The Old Cock.

The event was also run to raise funds for the Candlelighters charity and we are delighted to announce that £421.56 was raised. Thank you to everyone who supported the event and made donations and to the breweries who supplied gifts to be used as prizes on the night.
