Tribus 1.2 - 4.4% - available next week
Tribus is a 3-hop pale series showcasing three hops in each version. After our US version 1.1 sold out on release, we’ve now brewed v1.2. The malt bill remains unchanged with Golden Promise and Malted Wheat. With aromas of freshly cut grass, there are soft fruit notes, which give way to a rounded stone-fruit finish.
Westwood Stout Bottle - available next week!
A white Stout. A White Chocolate Stout. The roasted 'stout' flavour came from roasting real cocoa husks, and that's the only secret we're letting on! To look at, this is a pale ale, to drink it's a milky bar! Seek it out before it goes, this really is an exciting beer. It won collabfest nationwide by the way!
Crossroads IPA - 5.4%
Inspired by Ilkley’s standing as an ancient Roman crossroads rather than the well known ‘Blazing Squad’ anthem, Crossroads is our new West Coast IPA. Using a combination of Amarillo, Chinook, Crystal, Southern Cross and Cascade Hops - this beer packs a zesty punch with aromas of orange rind and citrus peel complimenting big floral notes, flavours of resinous pine and mandarins, and a dry, spicy finish. A real nod to the West Coast style.
October Beer - Scary Spice
Brewed as our October Origins beer, and influenced by flavours and spices from the East, we wanted to brew a pumpkin beer with a difference. Get in the mood for Halloween with a bit of zig-a-zig-aaaah!
Fireside Porter has arrived
Stoke the fire, wrap up warm, sit back and relax with this smooth, smoky and sumptuous brew. There is intense spice from the American hops, balanced by rich fruit from the home-grown varieties. Available September-December 2015
November beer - The Man From D.U.N.K.E.L.
A collaboration creation of a naturally hazy dark wheat beer. The specialist yeast provides fruity and spicy characters of banana, cloves and nutmeg. Only a single batch of this extra-ordinary (TOP SECRET) brew will be made, so get your hands on it while you can (although it won't self destruct in 5,4,3...)
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.

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!
