About Ilkley Brewery
Our mission statement is to be Powered by Beer, and this core value runs through every decision we make, and makes us who we are:
Powered by History: The original brewery in Ilkley was founded in 1873 but was swallowed by Bass in the 1920s. We draw inspiration from our roots but maintain a focus on the future; our unique interpretation of what beer should, and can be.
Powered by Hops: Constant innovation and development. We brew beers to suit every palate, enlivening the beer choice and pushing boundaries.
Powered by Passion: The Brewer’s Eye for detail ensures quality and consistency. Only the finest ingredients are sourced for the drinker’s pleasure. It provides the all-important balance and drinkability that we’re proud of, and the essential DNA for every pint.
Powered by People: We are in it together. We have bold ideas. Each of us has a voice and we love what we do. We always strive to play a role in our local and the wider community, championing causes and charities, and supporting independent and sustainable businesses wherever possible.
Powered by You. Because beer matters. We don’t just want people to buy our beer. We want them to enjoy drinking our beer so much they have another, and another, and then tell their friends about it. Beer is Britain’s national drink, and we’re all part of the conversation.
