As the men behind brewing there’s nothing we love more than being inspired by fellow brewers. As the men behind the bar we love nothing more than knowing that every pint we pull is going to be a hit. The Ecclesall Ale Club is where we share this love and you’ll notice the bar is heavily featuring Brew York at the minute.
Like most breweries, Brew York was created by friends who are passionate about beer. What makes them different to others is how fast they have grown. In just a couple of years Brew York went from an idea created in a pub to a fully functioning brewery with award winning beers available in cask, keg, bottle and can. They also opened a tap room on-site and pulled-off a distribution deal that saw their cans available in supermarkets nationwide. It couldn’t have been a better start for the York brewers but non of this would have happened if they hadn’t created great tasting beers.
They have built a core-range of favourites that are influenced by American flavours, brewed with traditional British techniques. These Pale Ales have a taste of familiarity but it is the depth of flavours that makes them stand out in what is becoming a competitive area in craft beer. The Americanisms are largely visible in the percentage which tend to be over 5% without overshadowing the ingredients.
Brew York also offer a bitter and porter in the core range but they allow their creativity to flow with small batches of experimental beers and seasonal collections. The Tonkoko milk stout has been a particular favourite on our bar recently.
The branding has helped Brew York beers stand out from taps, fridges and shelves. Their Fairytale of Brew York collection will be a sure-fire winner this Christmas, c’mon, who doesn’t love a good pun!
Their tap room, in York, based on-site gives visitors the opportunity to taste beers at their freshest and their is a constant rotation on cask and keg.
