Yorkshire Craft Beers was created in 2019 by James, John and Trevor, friends with a mutual interest in artisan beers. We wanted to bring the finest brews from around Yorkshire all under one roof for everyone to enjoy. We currently stock around 400 craft beers from dozens of Yorkshire based breweries to which we are adding more on a regular basis plus a guest brewery section showcasing the highest quality UK and international beers.
Our bottle and can shop will only stock beers from smaller independent craft breweries who have the same passion for a quality product that we have. Most of the beers we stock aren't usually available in large supermarkets as we want to offer our customers the highest quality brews. We go to great lengths when choosing which breweries to work with and which craft beers to stock to ensure we not only sell the finest traditional beers but also the best new and exciting flavoured artisan brews.
We are located inside the historic Queens Mill in Castleford which has been painstakingly refurbished into a community asset by the Castleford Heritage Trust staff and volunteers, which includes James, John and Trevor. The work to turn this world famous Mill into spaces that can be used by businesses and community groups has been carried out in a way that has preserved many original features.
In keeping with the nature of the Queens Mill our unique shop has been created with the same industrial feel using many recycled materials. We are also keen to be environmentally friendly in the long term by recycling packaging, cans and bottles. We are also conscious of our carbon footprint so we keep it to a minimum by using energy efficient lighting, using a website hosting company that uses 100% renewable energy and keeping deliveries to a minimum.
