Bottoms up: where to sip the best craft beer in Yorkshire

Tuesday 03 September 2019

The number of breweries in Britain is on the rise — and some of the tastiest ales hail from Yorkshire. So if you’re a lover of fine ales or enjoy the cold sip of a pint that’s been given that extra bit of care, check out our round-up of spots where you can whet your whistle with delicious craft beer.

Black Sheep Brewery

Set in Masham, North Yorkshire, this local brewery produces delicious cask, keg, and bottled beers and continue to go against the grain with a flow of new and experimental brews. For something new that you’ll want to write, er, Instagram home about, try one of the seasonal offerings like Brian (A very naughty pale ale), Rye Mild (An all-day dark session ale), or Blitzen (A complex ruby ale).

Wold Top Brewery

Using traditional methods and recipes to brew real ales with character, this family-run (and award-winning) brewery is one of the best in the area. Can’t decide what to try first? You can’t go wrong with a pint of Against the Grain, Marmalade Porter, or Scarborough Fair IPA (bonus – it’s gluten free).

York Brewery


Established in 1996 within the historic city walls, York Brewery is both a working brewery and a popular attraction for visitors. Offering guided tours four times per day, it’s the perfect place to brush-up on your beer knowledge—and sample one-of-a-kind brews. 

 

Brew York

Animal lovers delight! Unlike many other breweries that filter their beers with animal by-products, Brew York only uses natural salts to create the perfect balance in their brewing water – making all of their products vegetarian-friendly. Top picks include: Maris the Otter (English bitter) and Viking DNA (smoked porter).
