Large production facility. Turn left at the forklift and go up the stairs to a tasting room that is also the staging area for tours. I skipped the tour and just tasted - panels of three or four thirds. Beers were OK, the Mild was my favorite. Staff were friendly and accustomed to explaining beer basics to tourists. Worth a stop.
Visited on 4th June 2016. Narrow corridor and a flight of stairs lead you to this spot. Large bar and several conjoined rooms with lots of seats welcome you in. Good range of York beers on tap as youíd expect. Quality was good as weíre the prices. Good place to try Yorkís beer recommended
Small tasting room serving a couple of York brews on handpull. I hadnít joined a tour however the friendly barman was more than happy to answer questions and provide good info about the beers, which were tasting solid. Worth a look.
Nice little tasting room with their cask brews on offer only. Bloody cold on our visit, quick brewery tour followed by some inclusive tastes and a swift pint or three. Basic and fun but not worth spending a great amount of time in: too many good pubs within staggering distance. York is a lovely drinking city.
Had a really enjoyable tour at the York Brewery, just three of us turned up so we had a private tour of sorts given by a super friendly young bloke. Some interesting bits and pieces and I managed to learn something. Very good value at £8 which includes tokens for 4 x 1/3 pint measures at the bar. I think they had 8 beers on in total. Not 100% sure about the condition of all of them which is a bit of a worry. The ítaproomí is like an old mans pub, exactly the sort of place I like to spend time in. Didnít buy any extra beer but if I remember correctly its less than £3 a pint if you donít do the tour/want more beer.
Nice uniqe place with interesting mix of furniture, but it looked like that people enjoys the place and I can agree. Small selection, but this place is brewery place so its also fine. Liked how it looked and you have to walk through brewery. Small but cousy.
A nice tap room, upstairs at the brewery.
York Brewery is tucked away behind Micklegate in an old flour factory. It was started 16 years ago and seems to have gone from strength to strength, with three pubs in York (plus one in Leeds) and its beers found all over the city and beyond. Itís now owned by Mitchellís Hotels (formerly brewers in Lancaster).
The Tap Room has a pitched roof and large high top barrel tables and some comfy armchairs. We went in for a Saturday morning brewery tour (£6 per person, including a pint, with 10% discount for CAMRA members) and received a very friendly welcome.
Thereís also a small shop selling most of their standard bottles and some special one offs as well as glasses, beer mats, bar towels and a small selection of postcards.

Worth a look and just behind The Brigantes. I didnít do the tour but it was good to try a range of beers at the Brewery Tap, including a couple of seasonals. Third pint tasters were presented in a nice wooden box. The staff were friendly and very informative. I recommend the pickled eggs!
