Leeds (Carlsberg UK)

(Out Of Business)
Commercial Brewery


Founded in 1792. Acquired by Joshua Tetley in 1822. Became Tetley Walker in 1960 following a merger with Walker Cains of Warrington. A further merger with Ansells and Ind Coope in 1961 led to the formation of Allied Breweries. In 1992 Allied merged with Carlsberg to form Carlsberg-Tetley. In 1997 Carlsberg acquired full ownership and the name was changed to Carlsberg UK in 2003. The brewery was closed on 17 June 2011. All administrative functions of Carlsberg UK were relocated to their Northampton premises. It is not yet entirely clear which beers formerly brewed in Leeds have been retained and where they are brewed.
