HISTORY

A brief summary since 1993

Hatched in 1993, at a time when most ales on the market were brown, Rooster’s Brewing Co. fast developed a reputation for brewing ground-breaking, hop-forward pale ales that showcase exciting new hops from the USA.

Fast forward nearly twenty-five years and we’re still crazy about hops and the flavours they impart on beer – our hop store is crammed full of varieties from all over the world; from Australia and New Zealand to Slovenia and North America. But that’s not to say we don’t enjoy playing around with other flavours and styles of beer along the way.

Beers such as Yankee® soon started to attract the attention of judges at beer festivals across the UK, racking up countless awards along the way. One of the original, new-style, pale ales to be brewed in the UK, Yankee® is now a modern classic.

Over the years the awards have kept coming, but on a slightly larger scale, with YPA® picking up back to back gold medals at the prestigious World Beer Cup in recent times, whilst Baby-Faced Assassin won a bronze medal at the 2015 International Beer Awards, as well as a gold and bronze in 2017. Yankee also scooped a silver at the 2017 International Beer Awards.

Although initially a cask-only brewery, we now package our beers in four formats (cask, keg, bottle and can), having invested in our own canning line in 2014, which also allows us to keg a selection of our beers in-house.

It is our continued aim to produce the highest quality, clean-drinking beers possible, whilst also continuing to experiment and innovate, as new beer styles evolve and customer curiosity grows.

WHAT WE'RE UP TO

all instagram twitter blog



We've teamed up with our friends at Taylors of Harrogate to develop a brand new black coffee IPA called Wake-Up Call.



There's something hypnotic about watching Citra being prepped for a brew of B-FA, wouldn't you agree?



Another brew of Baby-Faced Assassin successfully mashed in. Now it's time for breakfast!



Another step closer to launching 24/7 in can...



This year's open day will take place on Saturday July 29th and we'll once again be joined by DJ Tony Safari, as well as Mac Daddies, Andy Annat's Crackerjack BBQ and Karkli's Chompmaster, Kumar.



We're looking forward to sharing 24/7 with you, which launches as a new addition to our core range in cask, keg & can at the start of April. 🍻



We're delighted to share the news that Rooster's came away with a gold, silver and bronze medal at the 2017 International Brewing Awards.



#Repost @trumanbrewery ・・・ DRINK | once a brewery, now a revolutionary space for arts and events in East London, there's still something very fitting about a craft beer festival coming to show us a good time at Truman's #everyonehasastory @roostersbrewco



They don't come much rarer than Howl in keg and the only ones to leave Yorkshire are currently being poured at #CBR17



Three of our latest specials to keep an eye out for



There's nothing like digging out the mash to warm you up on a chilly January day.



Late last year we brewed a beer called Howl, which was a 6.8% imperial stout that was conditioned on rum barrel oak and released a cask-only limited edition beer in the run up to Christmas. What we didn’t tell anyone was that we squirreled 5 BBLs of the original beer away...



Baby-Faced Assassin tasting on top form at @fountainandink this afternoon 😍



Have you tried High Tea - our jasmine green tea IPA - yet? It's limited edition, so, if you see it, grab it!



Rooster’s scooped five awards at the SIBA North East Beer Competition, which was held in York on September 14th.



This year we have chosen to support the Yorkshire Children’s Trust with the brewing of our annual charity fundraising beer, White Rose.



At the end of April we hooked up with our friends at The Bronx Brewery in New York to spend a day brewing with them...



Following a successful launch event last year, we’re excited to be hosting our second annual Brewery Open Day on Saturday July 16th.
