Frickley 1884 Bitter

26 Feb 2016| By: Carol Tingle

Old Mill Brewery, are proud to announce, the arrival of their new 4.0% Bitter  Frickley 1884, which has been created in sponsorship of Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band.  Old Mill will be donating 5p per pint sold to the band.   Frickley 1884 is a refreshing light bitter with a generous hop finish, and guaranteed to tickle any taste buds.  What else could be more fitting, other than relaxing with a great pint, listening to great music.

Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band is one of the most famous names in the brass band world and is currently one of the highest ranked.  The South Elmsall Village Brass Band can be traced back to 1884.  In 1905, the band was adopted by the local Frickley Colliery, which in turn was to become owned by the Carlton Main Coal Company, and by 1923 the band became known by its present name.  With dedication and pride, the band has grown in strength and stature, giving all its followers something to be proud of.
