The Identity Game: Studying The Ossett Brewery Pub Estate

If you asked a well-travelled beer aficionado to describe a typical Ossett Brewery pub, they could probably have a good stab at it; you might find our distinctive pump clip wallpaper, upturned barrels as rustic table-tops, classic pub paraphernalia on the walls, an Ossett Brewery logoed mirror and there’s a good chance of a bricked archway too. Finding success in business is not just about hitting on a winning formula though, it’s also about what you do with that winning formula. In truth, yes, there’s a few pubs amongst the 25-strong Ossett Brewery pub estate that bear those h.. Read more

Keep Brewing and Carry On: Introducing Our Annual Family Open Day

Every part of our lives involves the concept of simply ‘carrying on’. It involves work, looking after the kids, making tea, doing the washing, getting up and going to bed. Our everyday routines are very repetitive and a lot of the time we are struggling for motivation, but we simply carry on, because we have to. It is that notion that the world keeps on moving, regardless of what you do, that underpins Ossett Brewery’s ethos of hard work and making the most of opportunities, but it is also central to the support we give to our preferred charity; the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospi..

Celebrating 20 Years of Ossett Brewery with a ‘Happy Birthday’ Beer

When there is so much change happening and everything is looking to the future, it is easy to forget the past. There is no doubt that Ossett Brewery is undertaking radical change at the moment, with a new brewery and headquarters taking shape, a new brewery project at the Hop at Saltaire, regular ‘socials’ staged at our King’s Yard home and with constant expansion of the food and drink we are offering throughout our pub estate.  But all that won’t stop us standing still for a moment and remembering where it all started, because that was 20 years ago next month.

Now For Something Completely Different

Variety is the spice of life, but in the brewery business it is absolutely essential. The ever-expanding UK ale scene has seen to that, but providing variety is also a basic principle of business, and even if you are one of the biggest brewers in the north, you have to diversify, expand and offer something new or you get left behind. That’s not a position Ossett Brewery has ever taken up and we don’t intend to start now, so we have always strived to produce new flavours, adapt new techniques and, let’s be honest, give our taste buds a treat, by developing new beers and keeping the mark..

Suck it up Everyone, We’re Saying Goodbye to Plastic

  In an industry as competitive as the pub trade, waste is a huge problem and at Ossett Brewery it is something we have to keep a very close eye on in terms of brewing, food production and the way we operate throughout our whole pub estate. If we didn’t, the beer you drink and the meals you order would have to cost a lot more. We’re sure this is no surprise to most of our customers, but what does come as a rather pleasant by-product sometimes is when we are able to cut out a wasteful practice that actually has positive consequential benefits. From this month we have introdu.. Read more
