The Brewery, Brewery Tap & the Home Brew Shop are all housed in the original Malt Kiln, built in 1822 by Louis Fernandes. Closed 1929, then reopened to become the malt store & conditioning room for BeverleyÂ’s Brewery, which closed in 1968. Bought in 1994 by the James family. The 1st floor soon opened as the rehoused Home Brew Shop run by Maureen James. 1997, and a micro-brewery was installed by her husband and the Brewer, David. Then in 1999, on the top floor, the Brewery Tap opened. A very friendly place, that often has one of the James family behind the small bar. Six Handpumps serve at least 1 Fernandes & upto 5 Guest Beers. All beer is served from Firkins, and high turnover means that the beer is always in top form. Often, Guest Beers will not even last a session. There is always a real Cider/Perry. The bar includes a section with at least 40+ Belgium Beers, as well as a range of traditional Belgium Genevers. The Brewery Tap also displays a small part of an extensive collection of brewery memorabilia. Pub Signs, Trays, Posters, and Equipment - much of it from bygone breweries - adorn the walls. Awards are many. Wakefield CAMRA Pub of the Season in 1999, 2000 and 2001, Yorkshire CAMRA Pub of the Year Winner, as well as a plethora of awards for both the Brewery Tap and it Beers. A real family run business that produces high-quality crafted beers. Visit the Brewery Tap and meet friends you never knew you had. This was my local when I lived in England, and I dearly miss it.
