The book, Beer Yorkshire, is a collaboration project between independent beer publication, Hop & Barley, and talented beer photographer, Mark Newton.
T he title photographically documents the unique corner of Britain’s brewing culture and curates it into a carefully designed, coffee table book.
For the past eighteen months, photographer Mark Newton has worked to document every facet of Yorkshire’s beer industry. From breweries to bottle shops, festivals to farmers, it’s a story characterised by the strong and the fiercely independent people who make the beer scene what it is.
Mark Newton, photographer, explained: “”With an interest in the Yorkshire beer scene, I started the project as a way of pushing my photography, to think differently about how I approach my work. As the project evolved, the scope of the project grew, and developed into a wider exploration of the county’s brewing culture.
“From innovative startups to established family brewers, Yorkshire exemplifies the unique state of brewing in Britain today. It’s been great to meet such a variety of people, hear their stories and document their work.”
Nicholas Dawes, editor of Hop & Barley, added: “As a long time contributor to the magazine, we were delighted when Mark approached us to work with him to publish a book.
“We’re proud to be part of a movement that is reviving a passion for print, and Beer Yorkshire is an exciting opportunity for Hop & Barley to publish the first of what we hope is a series of image-led books documenting the world’s pre-eminent beer scenes.”
