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 ’taproom’ is like an old mans pub, exactly the sort of place I like to spend time in. Didn’t buy any extra beer but if I remember correctly its less than £3 a pint if you don’t 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 very nice tap room, very cozy. A good place to have York beers after the brewery tour (2011).

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. It’s now owned by Mitchell’s 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.
There’s 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 didn’t 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!

Lovely small pub away from the hustle and bustle. Incredibly friendly staff who know their stuff and a decent little brewery tour for £6 (includes a pint too). You can become a member and drink here, or you can pay for the tour and drink here. Mostly just York beers on tap, but thankfully they’re good quality and you can be sure of a good pint.

A nice brewery on the south side of central York. Quaint little tour on the upper floor. Nice staff and usually 5 or more of their beers on cask. Free pint of any beer when you pay for the tour, or you can split it into two half pints. I’d suggest getting the York Day Pass if you happen to be in York for more than just a day or so.

A brewery built for tours. You’re not allowed into the pub unless you’re paying for the tour or a member. They make pretty good beer, the brewing process is well demonstrated and displayed. There are scheduled tour times but when I showed up I was the only person and was asked to come back for the next one. Slightly awkward but at least I was given a free beer for the incovenience. Pretty central in York and worth stopping by.

Visited in 2004. The entrance to the pub was quite hard to find. I had to walk down a small alley on the side of the brewery, get up a stairs and through some doors. Nothing special you would think, but there weren’t any signs around. Once inside, there’s a small bar with some kind of living room, and in the back was a small shop with York Brewery items. Nice and friendly, ok beers.
