How did a barrel of Kelham Island Brewery’s Pale Rider ale end up in California’s sunny Longbeach?
The answer begins, like all good stories, with the expert craftsmanship of South Yorkshire. Just as it does in Sheffield’s Kelham Island, in the small village of Bawtry at Longstone Classic Tyres, the hard work and expertise of the Yorkshireman shines through – it’s no surprise that there are so many world leaders of industry to be found there!
That hard work has paid off for Longstone Classic Tyres, who specialise in distributing the famous Pirelli Cinturato tyres worldwide. From Bawtry to California’s prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, you’ll find Longstone’s tyres being used by the world’s most extravagant classic and vintage cars, including iconic brands like Ferrari, Bugatti, Bentley and Mercedes.
Pictured here is one of our friends at Lucas Classic Tires in Longbeach, California, enjoying a barrel of Kelham Island’s Yorkshire ale that was sent to sweeten the exchange of Pirelli Cinturato tyres, which are now packed into a 40’ long container alongside the now-empty beer keg, heading to Bawtry.
And that’s how, with the help of a truckload of quality tyres and a barrel of award-winning beer, Longstone Classic Tyres and Kelham Island Brewery are showing America – and the world – what Yorkshire is made of.
