Brewery pumped up about events venue
ALL you need is love and a bottle opener at the Wold Top Brewery's new business venture, Muddy Souls Events.
The award-winning brewery may be a firm favourite among East Yorkshire's beer drinkers but now, the Mellor family who are behind its success have launched another arm to their business enterprise.
The new events company at the family home, Hunmanby Grange, is set to become a popular venue for music events, birthday parties – whatever the public require.
The Wold Top Brewery in Wold Newton, near Driffield, will celebrate its tenth anniversary in May, coinciding with the event business's first wedding.

Gill Mellor runs the brewery and new business with husband Tom. She said the pair had been discussing doing something extra at the brewery for a while, before deciding to launch Muddy Souls.
Gill said: "We had been talking about the fact that we ought to do more here.
"People have often said what a wonderful setting it is."
Gill said the new business aims to offer people a package where they can decide exactly what they want to do. There are no guidelines and people can even camp overnight if they want to.
Gill said: "The brewery and pretty gardens work very well together and we are confident the business will take off.
"Hopefully, we will fill a hole in the market where people can put their own input on their wedding day – a wedding you can do yourself."
Gill said the family is making an ongoing investment into the new venture and continuously improving to move things forward.
She also said they hope to give people the chance to get married in the venue, too.
Gill said: "We would like to see this business grow and we think it will develop itself organically."
Muddy Souls will use local suppliers – something Gill said is important to the family business.
She said: "It is so important for us for people to buy our produce and we want to support other industries in the area."
Anne Duerden, who is working alongside Gill and Tom at Muddy Souls, said there has been a lot of interest in the new business already.
Anne said: "We've had a lot of interest and people have been to have a look round already.
"We are developing all of the time."
Muddy Souls is also committed to being environmentally friendly.
The farm has two wind turbines, which will provide sustainable heating for the venue.
