Brewery raises a toast to its latest venue

Yorkshire brewery, Brew York, is about to open the fourth venue in its expanding portfolio.

This time it is a taproom at the company’s newest site in Osbaldwick – a £2m state-of-the-art production facility.

Brewing began at the Osbaldwick site just over a year ago as part of a significant growth strategy to gradually increase production capacity to five million pints a year.

The 65,000 sq ft complex at Handley Park will now house a new taproom, which opens to the public at 4pm on Friday 15 July and will be open every weekend afterwards on a Friday and Saturday.

The weekend taproom – named the Handley Tap – will offer the freshest possible beer, including exclusive special releases, plus street food and Brew York merchandise.

It will feature tastings and brewery tours and will develop a programme of live music and special events.

Co-founder and managing director, Wayne Smith, said: “With venues already in York city centre, Leeds, and Pocklington we’re really excited to add this new taproom to the list.

“There’s a sizable community around us out at Handley Park and the hope is many will become regulars as we settle in and evolve based upon what they tell us they want.

“The key for us at Brew York is getting the freshest possible beer out to as many people as possible, and this is another way we can do that.

“We’re really looking forward to becoming a more active part of our local area and further enhancing York as a popular craft beer destination.”
