We've expand our brewing interests with the creation of a new bar. The “Brewery Tap” is a unique venue with room for 60 to 70 people – and is based at the Brewery on Shipley’s Dockfield Works which fronts onto the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.   “We already sell our own beers and UK craft ales but this will be a new bar where people can get a drink in the evenings and at weekends.” said Tony Gartland, Managing Director. “The Brewery Tap will serve a wide variety of beers – not just our own Saltaire ales, but we will be using our industry connections to bring in a range of keg and cask beers from across the country, so perfect for those who are passionate about great ale”.   We hope that the Brewery Tap will welcome current Saltaire fans as well as be a boost for canal users who can moor up outside the Brewery and call in for a pint or buy ale supplies to take back to their canal boat! It’s also the perfect stop off for cyclists using the Bingley to Leeds cycle path who are...
