White Rose – 2016


   

As well as being patrons of Saint Michael’s Hospice, Rooster’s is proud to help other local charities, supporting local beer festivals and fundraising events where possible, as well as brewing White Rose each year, which is a beer from which we donate 10p for every pint sold to a local, Yorkshire-based charity. Over the past few years we have made donations to Henshaws, Martin House and, in 2015, a Knaresborough-based group raising funds for defibrillators to be installed in the Market Square.

 

This year we have chosen to support the Yorkshire Children’s Trust, which is a truly local charity, helping local children. It was set up in 2011 by parents with children suffering with cancer in the hope that they can offer support to families going through a similar difficult situation.

 

Founder, Simon Widdop said: “It’s heart-breaking watching your own child going through an illness such as leukaemia and it was a really difficult time for us as a family. We had to put our whole life on hold as our daughter was in hospital for a full year receiving treatment. I wanted to turn a big negative experience in our life into something positive that would help others, and I feel very happy that the charity is helping children and their families from all across Yorkshire.

 

“Although the charity helps families from all four corners of Yorkshire, it doesn’t receive any Government, Lottery or NHS funding so relies on the kind support of local people and local businesses to provide the invaluable support to our local community. The team are very excited to be working with Rooster’s, and it’s a great way for local people to support a great local charity while socialising with their friends and family.”

 

With Yorkshire Day (August 1st) just around the corner, White Rose, a cask-only beer, is being delivered to our trade customers over the next couple of weeks and we hope you’ll join us in raising a glass and helping to support a truly worthwhile cause in the process.

Cheers!

WHAT WE'RE UP TO

@bryoniebrignall will have no regrets come tomorrow! #cluckyeah



"24/7 - Overall Small Pack Champion" has got a nice ring to it, wouldn't you say?



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



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...



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