Febrewery


   

 

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.

 

The brewery will be transformed into a bar, including bench seating and tables lining the main floor and a combination of home-made vegetarian pies and IPA-infused pork pies from Elite Meat in Starbeck. In addition to this, the tap room event has been scheduled to act as a launch party for a limited edition beer we’ve brewed with Beavertown (keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook feeds for more info), as part of our 25th Anniversary Collaboration Project, which will see a host of some of the best breweries in the UK, USA and Norway head to Knaresborough at various stages of the year to create some truly special beers.

 

Our annual open day has proved to be a big hit over the past few summers, so opening the brewery as a tap room has been something we’ve wanted to do for a while. The day will have a different feel to the open day and will be a little more low key. Essentially we’re inviting you to come and soak up the atmosphere of the brewery in its natural state and enjoy a selection of beers in cask and keg, with bottles and cans also available. A campaign has been organised and promoted by various small and independent breweries to encourage people to support their local brewery and ‘tap into independent beer’, carrying the hashtag #Febrewery on social media, with this event having been arranged to form part of this campaign. Depending on the success of the event, it may become a more regular fixture during the spring and summer months.

 

The day will be very much geared towards those aged 18 and over, but children are welcome as long as they are supervised by an adult at all times whilst on the premises – both inside and out. Dogs are welcome, but are not permitted inside the brewery building for hygiene reasons. A covered outside seating area will be provided.

 

Due to a lack of space, tours won’t be on offer on the day, but our annual open day on July 21st will provide an opportunity to anyone interested in having a guided look around the brewery.

 

Parking spaces are limited, although a bus stop at the end of the road leading to the brewery is serviced by buses from Harrogate, Knaresborough town centre and Wetherby and trains from both Leeds and York stop at Knaresborough.

WHAT WE'RE UP TO

all instagram blog



This is a public service announcement: Today we brewed the first of three new beers that’ll be coming your way in both cask and keg in January 🍺🍺🍺



2018 has been an incredibly exciting year for Rooster’s and 2019 promises to be no different...



Where has this year gone?! It doesn’t seem like two minutes ago that we launched our 25th Anniversary Collaboration Project, but here it is, the last of the beers is being released next week & we’re going out with a juicy, cryo-hopped IPA brewed with the lovely folk from @fourpure 🍻



We’re delighted to have won a British Guild of Beer Writers award last night for the magazine we put together as part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations. Props to all the winners of the night’s other awards, it was great to be in the company of so many skilled & passionate beery people 🍻



We had a blast pouring Howl and High Tea alongside friends from some of our favourite Yorkshire breweries this weekend as part of @207beerweek; soaking up the amazing beer scene they have going on in Portland along the way. Thanks for hosting such a great festival @mainebrewers! 🍻



‪Amazing to see Baby-Faced Assassin being poured at @slabportland, especially amongst such an incredible line-up of beers. Outrageously good pizza too! ‬



Coming to a November near you soon, three beers from two collaborations with our friends from @amundsenbryggeri and @freewheelbrew 🙌🏻 🍻



Keep an eye out for a small(ish) addition to the latest batch of Yankee pump clips we’ve had printed that’ll soon be adorning hand pumps at quality outlets across Yorkshire & beyond #productoftheyear 🏆🍻



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 👍🏻🍻



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.
