Carli’s lat­est brew

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - HERALD & POST -

AN en­tre­pre­neur whose quirky tea room was once voted the na­tion’s favourite in­de­pen­dent busi­ness has launched her very own beer - and it’s tea-flavoured.

At just 29, Carli-Jayne McNaught has al­ready proved her­self to be an enterprising busi­ness­woman by run­ning a suc­cess­ful tea room and open­ing a new bar last year.

Back in 2014, her tea room, The Olde Young Tea House on Grange Road, Mid­dles­brough, was voted the UK’s favourite in­de­pen­dent busi­ness af­ter win­ning a re­gional heat pro­moted by Mid­dles­brough Coun­cil.

Now the Mid­dles­brough mini-mag­nate has teamed up with Hartle­pool­based Camerons Brew­ery to launch her very own tea-in­fused pale ale - Sleep­ing BrewTea.

The be­spoke beer was cre­ated when Carli and Camerons’ mas­ter brewer Martin J Du­toy blended an am­ber pale ale with Sleep­ing Beauty Green Tea to cre­ate a beer with a unique rasp­berry and rose taste and aroma.

Carli said: “I’ve been work­ing with Cameron’s for over a year and think we have nailed it.

“I made the first batch with Camerons. We put the tea into a pil­low cases to in­fuse the beer with the flavour and aroma.

On Fri­day night Carli cel­e­brated the first batches of Sleep­ing BrewTea to go on sale at a launch night at the bar she opened in Oc­to­ber last year on Bridge Street East in Mid­dles­brough - Hit The Bar.
