The brewery consists of a 20 hl Brewhouse and over 260 HL in Fermenting and Conditioning capacity. This gives us the ability to produce a core range of 6 beers and the flexibility to produce the more ‘out there’ seasonal and one-off beers that really excites us. Our beer is produced in Cask, Keg & Can and sold throughout the UK.
Having met on a friend's stag do, Wayne & Lee had a lot in common and a healthy taste for beer was top of the list. Several years later at the same friend’s BBQ, the quality of Wayne’s home-brew, produced using the ‘all grain method,' sparked Lee’s 20 year old hobby back into life, and a budding partnership was formed. Before you knew it they were brewing together at every opportunity. A few homebrew competitions and a debut at a friend’s wedding, gave the guys the right amount of confidence. Eventually the regularly occurring pub conversation of ‘what if we were to build our own brewery?!?!?’ became more than just a drunken pipe dream, with the creation of Brew York.
