Established in 1996 within the city walls, York Brewery is both a working brewery and a tourist attraction, providing customers locally and around the country with the first traditionally brewed ales from within the walls of York for over 40 years. Consisting of a 20 barrel brew plant, five 20 barrel fermenters and 10 conditioning tanks. A gallery has been constructed around the brewhouse, providing an excellent viewing platform, with viewing panels into both the fermenting and coditioning rooms.
The Visitor Centre includes a bar (capacity 80 persons) and retail shop where various brewery merchandise can be purchased including York Brewery home brew kits, and the 5 different bottle brands brewed by the brewery. High Quality has been the watchword from the outset. A Head Brewer, Assistant Brewer and Brewery Consultant ensure the beers represent some of the finest available anywhere. Proof of this can be judged by the growing number of awards.
Access to market is a huge problem for the small craft brewer which is why we value so much having our brews on handpull. We wish all our customers good health and hearty imbibing - Cheers
Our online shop is now active selling a range of York Brewery branded merchandise, gifts, clothing and guide books.
