Three new beers!
We have launched no less than THREE new beers in October! Two different fresh/green hop beauties, called The Green Goddess and The Green Rose, and also a collaboration with some of the region's top brewers, to create a Smoked Dunkelweizen called The Man From D.U.N.K.E.L. Look out for a future collab launch at the end of the month with our friends from Brewdog!
Tap Takeover at The Yard
We are delighted to annouince that we have permanently taken over all three handpumps at local bar The Yard here in Ilkley. We will be able to showcase our range here, and so whatever your tastes, they will be catered for here. Mary Jane will feature permanently, and the other two pumps will rotate seasonally.
Hop Harvest Time!
It's that wonderful time of year when we look to the annual hop harvest! This year we are sourcing fresh hops for two different beers. The Olicana hop we helped develop will be harvested for this year's Green Goddess, and we are also making a Yorkshire ESP using fresh local hops! Lead brewer Christa even led a sortie to Yorkshire Hops at the end of August to scope out the hops first hand!
Roll up roll up get your official brewery merchandise here! Kids t-shirts, designer designs, and we've even commissioned a special Ilkley Brewery cycle jersey, made by our friends at Spirit, so you can be the envy of the road users!
Charity Partner - Thea’s Trust
Ilkley Brewery is proud to be supporting the charity Thea's Trust, which was set up to raise funds and awareness for rare genetic condition MPS. A local girl called Thea Patterson, was diagnosed at just 6 months in January 2014, and sadly passed away in May. We are continuing to work with her parents and the Trust to raise awareness for this rare and devastating condition.
2014 Brew Calendar
You can now see what we're brewing for the whole year! We're creating 6 new Origins beers, as well as welcoming back some favourites from last year. We will continue to use our pilot kit to experiment and develop, resulting in many more small-batch brews. This beautifully designed calendar is available printed in A3 size - contact us if you would like a copy posting out!
