Open Day ’17


   

Following the success of both our 2015 and 2016 open day’s we’re happy to confirm that this year’s event will take place on Saturday July 29th.
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 beers from cask, keg and can. (Please ensure you have a valid proof of age ID with you, as you may be asked to present it when buying alcohol).

 

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 Mac Daddies, Andy Annat’s Crackerjack BBQ and Karkli, giving you three outrageously delicious options for food to pair with your beer as you relax in the sunshine* in the company of some silky beats from DJ Tony Safari.

 

This year, we’ll now be in a position to accept card payments, as well as cash.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

*Fingers crossed.

WHAT WE'RE UP TO

Thanks to everyone who nominated us. We were delighted to learn we'd been shortlisted for this award a few weeks ago, but to actually win it is amazing. Hats off to the whole of our team & well played Yankee - not a bad way to celebrate 25 years since first being brewed! 🏆 🍻



We had a blast brewing with our good friends from @greencheekbeer a couple of weeks ago. The result is Pecking Order, a juicy pale ale that includes a cheeky little addition of dried orange peel from oranges grown, picked, zested, dried & smuggled into the country by Evan & Brian. Catch it launching in both cask and keg at @10devonshirepl on the 20th and then at our last brewery taproom social on Saturday 22nd! 🍻



We’re all set for @leedsbeerfest 🙌🏻 Come & find us to quench your pale ale / brut pils / lemon radler / Turkish Delight stout / pineapple & grapefruit IPA / cucumber pale ale / Rocky Mountain IPA / IPA-Lager hybrid / American wheat beer thirst 👍🏻🍻



Well, this is jolly exciting...



Coming soon...



The wanderer returns! Six years on from his internship with us & fresh off the red eye from LAX, we enjoyed brewing with @YorkshireSquareBrewery’s Andy Black today. Brewers of incredible, traditional cask beers in Torrance, CA, Yorkshire Square also have the best t-shirts to go with ‘em!



Launching at the @harrogatetap on Saturday July 28th, we’re excited to share the first details of the beer we recently brewed with Wales’ finest, @tinyrebelbrewco, as part of our 25th Anniversary Collaboration Project!



Loving our new tin tackers 🐔



It has come to our attention that the cans of One Trick Pony, our recently released Rose Lemonade sour, carry some information on the labels regarding the beer’s suitability for vegans, which is incorrect.



Fancy a few light ales direct from the source, served by the brewers? We're opening our doors for the first time as a tap room on Saturday February 24th between 12pm and 6pm.



It’s not every day that a brewery turns twenty-five, so we’ve decided to celebrate by brewing a bunch of beers with some of our favourite brewers and breweries across 2018.



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



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



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...



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...
