Brew Programme 2013


Always brewing up a Storm


Based in Tockwith, in the beautiful Vale of York, Rudgate Brewery was founded in 1992 and is family owned. We brew in an age-old traditional manner using only the ďŹ nest ingredients to create our award winning beers. Our Yorkshire mains water needs very little adjustment in the burtonisation process to become our brewing liquor. Pearl is our main base grist and our brews include other malts such as Wheat, Lager, Crystal, Chocolate, Caramalt, Roasted Barley and Brown Malts. We use whole cone hops, sourced from around the globe. We pride ourselves on quality and consistency. Some of this comes from using our secret yeast! Originally sourced from Cannon Brewery, SheďŹƒeld, the Stones Ale yeast works extremely well for us and with our beers.
