After last year's (almost!) success, we are once again lifting our paddles to compete in the UK's biggest Dragon Boat Race - we loved the event last year but we want to do even better in 2018! We are putting our efforts in to raise £1,000 for Bradford's Lord Mayor's chosen charities the Down Syndrome Training & Support Service in Bingley and the Wishing Well Appeal.

Help us paddle faster and smash our fundraising target by sponsoring us using this link to make a donation. We're getting back in the boat on Saturday 23rd June for a full day of competing, so if you fancy a great day out cheering us on, please see the Dragon Boat Race website for more details. We very much appreciate any donation, no matter how small. Thank you for your support! ...

We’re going cycling mad for Bike Week 2018, from social cycles to a bike powered pop-up cinema, we’ve got you covered!   Ride n’ a Pint We’ve joined forces with MTB Cycle Yorkshire to encourage our beer fans to dust off their bikes and pedal for a pint by joining in with any (or all!) of our free social cycles.   Meeting at the Brewery Tap, these social rides will take you out and about through great local terrain. We want to show you where to go to get out on your bike locally before finishing up for a pint, or two, back at the Tap. All routes will suit beginner-intermediate cyclists, so if you’ve been looking to get on your bike, but not sure where to go, this is for you.   Bikes with front suspension and helmets are a must as you’ll be getting off the beaten track into some bumpier regions!   Sunday 10th June 5pm – 8pm Tuesday 12th June 6.30pm – 9.30pm Thursday 14th June 6.30pm – 9.30pm   Please meet promptly at the start time as we’ll be setting off just shortly after.   Pop-up Cinema Taking our Bike Week activities up a gear, we’re teaming up with CityConnect to host a bike-powered pop-up cinema right...

However, in an increasingly competitive industry we know how important consistency and quality is to our trade customers and every discerning beer drinker. Achieving the accreditation on our first audit is great recognition of our high standards and focus on quality and consumer safety.   We're incredibly proud to have received this stamp of approval from SALSA and continue to be committed to setting high standards for ourselves as we move to the future....

Shaping our future

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017
1 Comment
At the end of last year, we undertook an extensive market research exercise to find out more about what our customers and consumers think of our brand, product and services.   After more than 10 years in the industry, it was very heartening to find out that so many people wanted to take part and share their opinions with us. Much of the feedback, received from 800 participants, reassured us that we produce high quality, tasty and consistent beers. While our team is viewed as professional, friendly and passionate. This is great news! Because it reflects what we have worked hard to establish.   Thank you to everyone who took the time to share their opinions with us. We have ambitious plans and this feedback will now help to shape the future for our brand and products.   You can expect to see some changes over the coming months as we develop our ideas and bring them to life.   Are you curious about the results? Take a look at our Infographic. ...
