Under New Management
Half Full Beer Co have acquired the majority share in Ilkley Brewery. There will be immediate investment to increase production, and maximise potential. The brewery will be run by the existing team, including Head Brewer Christa Sandquist and so there will be no change to the quality or consistency of the beers! The future is bright, and this is only the beginning!
Come and work with us!
We're looking for an exceptional Brewer to join our team!
Please email your CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to apply.
Good luck people!
Damn Good Threshing - 5.1% - American Wheat Beer
Our talented American Brewer has gone back to her roots once more to brew an American Wheat beer. Fruity and refreshing this beer is designed to highlight each of it's ingredients, and sing about the natural produce we use to brew. If you've had a frustrating, Basil Fawlty-type day... sit back and let this beer give you a Damn Good Threshing of beery goodness!
Ruby Jane returns
Ruby Jane, SIBA Gold winner, will be available once again from 27 July...hooray! The combination of 7 malts give you complex biscuit layers of flavour, with a velvety smooth palate and creamy head. There is a soft bitterness from the hops.
August Beer - The Invader
After the runaway success of our Rye Pale brewed for Le Tour (Bike Rye'd) we have revamped and improved the recipe and will be launching it for your tasting pleasure in August 2015. Crisp, peppery and light, this is the perfect quencher. Rye is an invasive cereal plant, and we'd like to see more of it take over so we can continue to brew lovely Rye beers!
Our Rose Petal Pale, Rosa Ostara, is making a comeback for just 12 weeks from 17th August - order now to avoid disappointment! Named for the Spring Equinox, and brewed to inject a little fresh floral beauty into your life!
Summer - Refreshing Golden Ale 4%
Returning to banish those cold Spring blues, and with a slightly higher abv than before; it’s Summer-time! A dark-golden coloured, light refreshing beer with orange, citrus, mango and vanilla flavours leading to a dry finish. You could say it was sunshine in a glass. You could describe it as Umbongo for adults... The best thing to do is to buy a pint and see for yourself!
