Timothy Taylor’s is an independent, family-owned brewery founded in Keighley, Yorkshire in 1858 by Timothy Taylor. In addition to brewing a range of ales the Company also operates a modest pub estate of 19 outlets.
While our current Chief Executive, Tim Dewey, is not a family member, family members hold prominent positions on the Board of the Company and all shares are held (and according to our articles of association, must be held) by descendants of either Timothy Taylor or Sir Donald Horsfall (a Taylor family friend who invested in the brewery in the 1950’s, at a time when it faced crippling death duties). This both protects the company’s independence and ensures we take a long-term perspective.
Our purpose is to thrive as a family-owned business by brewing nationally renowned, award-winning beers, and owning pubs which support the values of the company.
