About
Established in 2017, Wetherby Brew Co is an independent microbrewery, taproom and bottle shop located within walking distance of the pretty Yorkshire market town of Wetherby. We brew and sell all of our own beers on the premises and we open to the public every weekend. Our bottle shop offers a great selection of our beers (bottles and mini-casks) plus a range of guest bottles and cans which we rotate regularly. We also offer a half-day brewing experience (which makes a perfect gift!). You'll find us almost exactly halfway between London and Edinburgh... just 5 mins drive from the A1 and easily accessible from Leeds, York and Harrogate. Please visit our website page for opening times, directions and details of our latest events. We look forward to welcoming you!

Nice beer no dog free zone
Sep 2020 • Friends
The beers were great but as I have a dog and pet allergy more consideration needs to be given to people who aren't enamoured with dogs everywhere and it prevents me and others with allergies visiting.

Hi James. Many thanks for your review. We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed our beers and we appreciate your feedback regarding pet allergies. Our taproom hasn't been open for a while due to Covid-19, so we're not sure exactly when you visited. Prior to the current lockdown, we opened our 'brewing experience' area upstairs to provide extra taproom seating. Dogs are not permitted in the upstairs area (our regular customers are aware of this, we advise new customers verbally, and we recently put up some new signage too). Going forward (post lockdown) we will also be making the bar area 'service only'. We're hoping that these measures will mean you can return and enjoy a few beers with us in confidence. If you have any further queries, concerns or requests, please do not hesitate to contact us. We take allergies very seriously and will be more than happy to help you! Thanks again!

Great brewery and taproom.
Oct 2020 • Friends
We had a fantastic brewery experience with the team. Breakfast rolls and tea. Lots of learning about how to brew, ingredients and processes. We chose our beer style, ingredients and strength. We also had lunch and came up with a name and funky pump for our beer when it is ready for serving and of course a few pints after learning about cellaring and serving. A great present from my wife with a great group of fellow brewers and the great staff at the brewery tap.

Brewing Experience

What a great day this is, other reviews have beautifully described how good this day is. John and Tom are great at passing on their experience and passion. After lockdown this local business deserves our support, give it a go, you will have a great day brewing your own beer and tasting a great range of perfect beers. Really looking forward to returning to taste our brew.

Very nice beer,covid secure, dog friendly, great staff........
Aug 2020 • Couples
Called here Saturday afternoon as camping nearby and out on bikes with the dog.
We really enjoyed a few pints sat outside although dog friendly in and out.
We particularly liked the Wetherby IPA cask even though ( ashamed to admit) I usually prefer keg.
Covid secure and friendly staff makes full marks here.

Google maps slightly out for us on cycle setting but it’s just around the corner.

Thank you so much for the review bestyman... we really appreciate it. We're delighted you liked our IPA (one of our most popular beers)... especially since you normally prefer keg beers! We take on board your feedback about Google maps... whilst our 'map pin' is in the correct place, our premises are accessed via Deighton Close (not the unnamed road closest to us). We've updated the 'find us' page on our website to reflect this, so thank you for highlighting. We hope you will visit us again the next time you are camping in the area... or just passing by. Cheers!

The BEST brewery trip!
Aug 2020
Did the Brew experience this last Saturday, 8.8.20. Seven of us for my son's 30th birthday.
Arranging was easy through John, all worries regards social distancing put to bed, all done very safely.
Arrived at 9am to a fab breakfast sandwich, and then set to creating our perfect beer, selecting the different malts and hops to create a beer totally for you. Then onto the brewing itself, actually involved in the mixing of the mash, right through to hops addition and into the fermenter. Next it's coming up with a name for the beer and designing the beer clip, (the beer is sold in the tap once it's ready in 4 to 5 weeks). You get a go at pulling a pint, and of course drinking a few whilst enjoying the provided lunch, all including in the price, along with your master brewer cert and a 3 beer pack to take away. Along with the great hospitality and the delicious selection of at least 6 cask beers, 2 keg and a couple of ciders on the bar, this is a fantastic way to spend a day with some like minded friends. This brewery is a little gem, the brewery experience a fab fun way to learn about beer making. Open Fridays and Saturdays at the moment, give the tap a try if you like a good beer and friendly company. We will be back in a few weeks to try our brew! Look out for it on the bar, "Jay's Furloughed" 4.5% abv, fruity pale ale. See you then! Thanks John, Tom and the team for making the day so good.

Wow! Thank you so much for such a lovely review. We really appreciate it! 'You will be pleased to know that Jay's furloughed' is coming along very nicely and we look forward to serving it on our taproom bar in a few weeks time!

Best birthday present ever
Feb 2020 • Family
We arrived with the wind howling, entered the building to a warm welcome from John , Tom the brew master was showing his skills as a breakfast chef the bacon,egg and mushrooms cooked to perfection. The introduction to our day was very informative. Then the serious business began choosing our brew ingredients helped along the way by the very knowledgeable Tom , into the brew room to get the brew on. We were all encouraged to take part in each stage of the brew process. Then to the cellar to see how the beer is conditioned before being pulled at the bar , on to the business end of the process (pulling the perfect pint) and what a pint it was if you’ve ever done a brewery trip and thought it was good you should seriously look at doing this to be involved in brewing a beer you have all had input in then going back in 4 weeks to drink it at the bar is well worth your hard earned cash , see you in 4 weeks

Thank you so much and taking the time to write such a glowing review. We really appreciate it. We look forward to welcoming you back to the brewery to sample your beer in a few weeks time. Hopefully, it will be a nicer day for you to travel and who knows? if the storms have passed you may even be able to sit outside to enjoy a pint!

Wonderful Hidden Gem of Wetherby
Oct 2019 • Friends
I can highly recommend you try this place out. I've been going ever since they opened & I'm delighted they've opened. The staff are so friendly & helpful, making each & every single person welcome, even your fur babies 🐕🐩get looked after with FREE Dog biscuits & water provided for them. It's the perfect place to go all year round. They're constantly improving the interior, the drinks selections, bar snacks/nibbles etc. There's no better place to hide away on a freezing cold day/night, sat in front of their massive log burner, in comfy leather sofa's to sink into. They'll even bring your drinks over to you 🍺🍻🥂🍾🍷, so you don't have to get up 😉. They love looking after you 😘 The Open Mic & Band Nights are not to be missed either, as the auccustics are incredible inside their building 🎤🎶🎵🎸🎹🎙️🎚️ There's someone playing on 1st March, which I planning on going to, something to look forward to. Well done all of you, see you very soon 😉💋👍

Thank you for your lovely review Fiona B! We're delighted you're still enjoying our brewery taproom. It's hard work running a small independent business, so kind words like yours make all the difference! We very much look forward to welcoming you back for a return visit on the 1st March (if not before!).

Brilliant experience
Feb 2020 • Friends
First visit here on the half day brewery experience. Absolutely brilliant day from start to finish. We were well looked after by knowledgeable passionate staff as we learned about beer and brewed our very own. Really looking forward to going back and tasting the fruits of our labour. Tried a few beers whilst here and everyone was spot on. Can not recommend this experience highly enough- never seen anything similar anywhere before and would urge anyone into their beer to get onboard

Best beer in LS22
Jan 2020 • Friends
I’ve been in several times over the past few years but realised I’d never reviewed (maybe I didn’t want to share!). Warm and relaxed atmosphere, great staff serving an absolutely quality product: blonde, IPA, gold, bitter - whatever your fancy they brew it (I’m on chocolate orange tonight)! A must for anyone who appreciates a decent pint, often hard to come by in LS22! Cheers 👍

Thank you for your lovely review, it means a great deal to us! We're really pleased to hear you are a fan of our beers. Our 'Chocolate Orange' is a limited edition so we can't guarantee it will be on again when you next visit, however, the good news is we'll be brewing lots of different beers over the next few months for you to enjoy (and we look forward to welcoming you back to our taproom to try them). Cheers!
