ANOTHER brewery tap has been lined up for discerning drinkers in East Lancashire.

Worsthorne Brewery is providing the ales for The Tap at No. 1 at the corner of Hargreaves Street and Ormerod Street in Burnley.

Former Clarets manager Stan Ternent, who still lives in Cliviger, has been lined up to perform the official opening tonight, and the operation is understood to be creating four new positions.

Rob Hockedy, head brewer at Worsthorne, which is based at Siberia Mill in Briercliffe, said the tap had been set up as a separate company to the brewery.

Added Rob, who will manage the new bar: “Four of our beers will be on tap there, with two guest ales.

“We are also going to have a massive selection of gins, around 25, and are planning themed craft ale and gin nights in the near future.

“We will looking to turn the focus on guest ales and growing our own range.”

Bosses there are planning to run special promotions for veterans as part of the remembrance weekend.

Brewers are also launching their own tribute tipple, the QLR, named in honour of the county regiment which used to recruit across East Lancashire.

Other similar ventures, by the likes of Three Bs and Hopstar, in Darwen, and the sprawling Holmes Mill complex in Clitheroe, Bowland Brewery’s jewel-in-the-crown, are already well-established.

Worsthorne first found its feet, under the stewardship of owner Michael Whittaker, in February 2011 and the firm has won a number of industry awards, including a gold medal for the best premium bitter in the Society of Independent Brewers 2014 North West competition.

The tap development, at the site of the former Mojitos bar, is the latest boost for the town’s nightlife after Brazilian restaurant Carnivoro opened in the old Post Office building nearby a few weeks ago.
