In 2012 we had the slightly crazy idea that we would build our own micro-brewery. We'd been brewing some pretty fantastic beers at home for quite a while and thought it would be a good idea to share our eminently quaffable creations with the whole town. We rolled up our sleeves and, together with local craftsmen, built the brewery that we use today.
After we switched the brewery on and produced the first drops of our delightfully delicious Yorkshire ale we were pleased to discover that the beer was a hit in the local pubs.
Whitby Brewery ales can now be found around Whitby town and further afield at pubs and festivals around the country. So next time you see one of those gorgeous wooden pump clips give it a go and see what you think of our excellent Yorkshire tipple.
Early in 2016, after months of hard work, we finally switched on our new brewery located opposite the famous Whitby Abbey, perched high on Whitby's East Cliff.
Moving to our new premises has given us much more space, so we're able to brew more beer at any one time, keeping up with the high demand our beers enjoy.
We're really excited for what the future holds. This summer we'll be launching our brand new online store - part of this new website - and we'll be turning our original micro-brewery into our Experimental Brewery and going back to our roots, creating some more unusual beers which will be available in small batches over the coming months.
It's been an exciting few years so far, and we're just getting started. Keep your eyes on the news page for updates over the coming weeks - or follow us on social media to stay in the know.
