From 12-5pm our doors will be open and you’ll have the opportunity to come along and see how we do things, as well as being able to buy a beer or two and soak up the atmosphere with some funky tunes and a selection of street food. Free tours of the brewery will operate throughout the afternoon, for which you can sign up on arrival. There’ll also be an opportunity to buy some Rooster’s merchandise, whilst the bar will be serving a mixture of cask and keg beers, as well as a selection in can and bottle. In addition to the main bar, the guys from Major Tom’s Social will be manning their outside events vehicle, serving Major Tom’s Pale Ale.

 

The front of the brewery will be transformed into a beer garden for the day, which is where you’ll be able to find our friends from Fat Annie’s Hot Dogs, Scream For Pizza and Karkli, giving you three delicious options for food to pair with your beer as you relax in the sunshine* in the company of some silky beats from Tony Safari.

 

The bars, merch stand and food stalls are cash only, as we’re unable to accept cheque or card payments. The nearest cash point to the brewery is a 10-minute walk (each way) at the ESSO garage on the corner of Manse Lane and Wetherby Road, should you forget or run out.

 

Details for how to get to and from the brewery are listed below, but if you’re planning on driving, please be aware that there’ll be no access beyond the front gate of the road that we’re situated on (Grimbald Park). This is due to the road being in use by our neighbours at all times. If you’re planning on joining us and there will be children in your party, please keep this in mind, as there will likely be various large vehicles using the road throughout the afternoon. Please ensure children are supervised by an adult at all times whilst on the premises – both inside and out.

 

Please ensure you have a valid proof of age ID with you, as you may be asked to present it when buying alcohol. Car parking will be available at CLAD Safety, which is situated at the entrance to the road, immediately before the security gate. Dogs are welcome, but are not permitted inside the brewery building for hygiene reasons.

 

*Fingers crossed.

By Train

 

There are regular train services to and from Knaresborough from both Leeds and York, running roughly every half an hour. The brewery is approximately a half an hour walk from the station. Alternatively, there is a bus service from the town centre (see below).

 

By Car

 

If arriving by car, sat nav to HG5 8LJ, but be aware that technology has a habit of directing visitors to either of the roads parallel to the one we’re on (Grimbald Park). Keep an eye out for Clad Safety, which is positioned at the entrance to Grimbald Park, just before or after the traffic light-controlled bridge, depending from which direction you’re arriving. Clad have kindly let us use their car park for the event, so park up & walk down the road, past the M.O.T. garage & look for the over-sized Anderson shelter!

 

By Bus

 

The X1 bus runs to and from Harrogate, via Knaresborough town centre and stops on Wetherby Road, at the end of Grimbald Park, outside Clad Safety. The service operates every 15 minutes until around about 6pm. Bus services also operate between Wetherby & Knaresborough, using the same stop on Wetherby Road.

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

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...

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



The perfect gig accompaniment? We think so!



Second to Sunday pints, Saturday pints are the best



Delighted with I'm A Lumberjack (And I'm Oak -Aged). Be sure to seek it out as part #collabfest2016



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...
