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..
