Taking Ossett Brewery To The Next Level: 2018 The Year Of Expansion

There is a famous John Lennon quote that goes “life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans”. It is perhaps a line that we could attribute to the growth of Ossett Brewery over the last few years. The organisation has expanded and diversified beyond recognition, but our humble headquarters in the market town of Ossett have remained more or less the same. While the capacity of the brewery has increased as demand for our core beers has grown, particularly in the last five years of the Real Ale Revolution, there comes a time when you have to look around and make a key decisio..

Ossett Brewery keeping it real at the Brewer’s Pride

Some things in life just seem inevitable; the sun going down at the end of the day or England succumbing to a middle order batting collapse in the Ashes, these are events you could set your watch by and file under ‘definitely going to happen’. Another, perhaps, is the acquisition of the Brewer’s Pride pub by Ossett Brewery. Maybe ‘inevitable’ is not the right word, but there is something about the latest addition to the Ossett pub estate that just feels right, and pretty much as nature intended. November saw the pub up for grabs and it was swiftly secured for the brewery.. Read more

Carrying On With The Annual Family Fun Day

There has been an awful lot of change at Ossett Brewery over the 20 years that it has been brewing beer, but one constant has been the enduring spirit to carry on, despite whatever chaos is ensuing around us. Demand for our beer pretty much dictates that we have to do that, but where others may chuck the towel in and give up, at the King’s Yard brewery we have learnt to adapt to whatever is thrown at us. The brewery itself has changed location and grown beyond recognition over the last few years, and our current expansion is presenting more daily challenges than a Tour de France winner has to face..

A Labour Of Love

I’ve been drinking beer for the best part of 30 years, and I think I’ve got a fairly intimate knowledge of it, in terms of taste at least. I know what I like and I’ve certainly got experience in establishing that fact. But until you have spent time actually making beer you can’t truly claim to understand the mechanics of it, the science behind it and the sheer effort required to make a quality brew. I always knew that, so it was a real pleasure when I was offered the opportunity to spend a day in the King’s Yard brewery with head brewer Paul Spencer. Many of us have spen.. Read more

Something In The Air At Fernandes

We all like to raise a glass to celebrate an anniversary, and we don’t need much excuse, whether it’s marking a wedding milestone or five years since the cat first learned how to use the cat flap that you fitted many years previously. If there’s a significant date to be noted, we’ll iron a shirt and be straight there. So imagine if there were two anniversaries landing together at the same place, and that place was a pub combined with a microbrewery? You shouldn’t need a degree in Event Management to be able to arrange an appropriate celebration, and lo and behold we have al.. Read more

Spreading The Love of Beer with our September Beer Festival

For most people the festival season is seen as June to August; the summer months, or so we call them. You know the scene; endless sunny days, drinking, dancing, eating and sometimes sleeping outdoors, enjoying a sunset as the band plays on, etc etc. But at Ossett Brewery we like to be a bit different, and September is when it all kicks off for us.   The great benefit of beer festivals is that you don’t necessarily need the weather; just the people and the beer. Except that September usually provides pretty decent weather anyway, but let’s keep .. Read more

Always shaping the future: the history of Ossett Brewery

July 2017 sees the first steps taken in the latest expansion of Ossett Brewery. Ceiling panels are being lifted, tanks re-located and pipework re-directed. It is not the first time the organisation has shrewdly invested to pre-empt or catch up with demand, but this time a phased 18-month programme of development will leave the brewery in a strong position for the future. And given the relatively recent birth of the organisation, that the astonishing rise in popularity of real ale has been suitably served from the same humble area of land in the small market town of Ossett, goes to show how skilful manag..
