RudgateBrewtown Tour Rudgate Beer

The self-described granddaddy of the city’s microbreweries, Rudgate Brewery has been producing Yorkshire ales with a historical twist since 1992. The heritage and culture of the region is key to the brewery’s ethos: York’s Viking roots inform the names and recipes of many of Rudgate’s beers, and the brewery also produces York’s Chocolate Stout in collaboration with York Cocoa House, in recognition of the city’s long association with confectionary. With several awards to its name, including CAMRA’s Overall Champion Beer of Britain 2009, Rudgate has achieved national recognition over the years, and continues to produce award-winning brews.

Yorkshire Heart Beer Brochure

Yorkshire Heart’s brew HQ, Nun Monkton, might just be the prettiest village in North Yorkshire: the vineyard and brewery are situated in 10 acres of fantastic views of vines, surrounded by lush countryside. With a core range of seven beers, plus at least two specials every month, the brewery produces quality cask ales using water from Yorkshire Heart’s own natural spring.

Ainsty Ales Brewery Brewtown Tours

One of the newest additions to York’s beer scene, Ainsty Ales started its life as a ‘cuckoo’ brewery, using the spare capacity at Malton’s Brass Castle brewery to brew batches twice a month before moving on to pastures new. With its very own premises about to open in the idyllic village of Copmanthorpe, Brewtown is delighted to offer visitors a chance to see the brand new brewery in action.

With a strong emphasis on sustainability and waste reduction, Ainsty’s aim is to produce great tasting beers as ecologically as possible, collaborating with local businesses to offer a truly unparalleled Yorkshire beer experience.

Brewtown’s north-west York brewery tour will end back in the heart of York at the city’s newest microbrewery. Situated on Walmgate overlooking the River Foss, Brew York’s ten-barrel craft brewery and tap room aims to redefine the city’s position in the UK brewing scene. Brew York’s passion for modern twists on British classics is evident in their beers, which combine zesty hops with toasty malts to create some true Yorkshire classics.

York Brewery

Sitting just inside the city walls on Toft Green, a stones through from Micklegate Bar, York Brewery was opened in 1996. Having a 20BBL brew plant with 6 open fermenters and 5 conditioning tanks. A gallery and viewing panel allow guests a fanatastic viewing platform whist on a guided brewery tour.

Half Moon

A five-barrel microbrewery housed in a converted forge in the picturesque village of Ellerton… are you sold yet? A long-held dream of husband and wife team Tony and Jackie Rogers, the couple launched the brewery in 2014 with a range of five classic Yorkshire ales brewed in small batches, as well as collaborations and seasonal specials. With the word spreading and demand for their delicious beers on the up, Half Moon won’t be York’s best-kept secret for long.

Hop Studio

Sitting a stone’s throw from the Yorkshire Air Museum, the Hop Studio’s selection of Yorkshire favourites will have you flying high. Founded in 2012 by beer enthusiast Dave Shaw, the Hop Studio doesn’t like to be pigeonholed – they identify their brewing style as ‘original British craft beer’ and produce beers full of flavour, aroma and charisma – ranges include a Yorkshire Dubbel, a Vanilla Porter, and Elder, an Elderflower Saison brewed only during the summer months.
