We launched our first keg ale in Spring 2020 - Hopical Storm is a 4% ABV aromatic, dry-hopped, modern pale that, while initially launched as a well-liked cask product in Summer 2019, also performed exceptionally well when we trialled it in keg at high-profile festivals and selected pubs.

Citrusy and sessionable, it has a pleasant fruity body topped with flavours of mandarin, mango and passion fruit.

Part of the Taylor Made range

Informed by tradition and crafted with experience

Andrew Leman and his team of four Heriot-Watt-trained brewers have been experimenting, developing and tinkering with different malts, hop varieties and styles of beer in our five-brewer’s-barrels micro-brewery to create our Taylor Made range of craft beers.

Poulter’s Porter, Cook Lane IPA and Hopical Storm are contemporary, full-flavour beers with the timeless and inimitable Taylor’s Taste.

Cook Lane

Why we love the rain in Yorkshire.

Why we love the rain in Yorkshire.

Taylor’s brewery sits upon the Knowle Spring, the unique source of water we use to brew our beers. This particularly pure and consistent spring water is one of the reasons we’re able to brew beer of such reliable quality and taste. It has filtered over time through layers of sandstone and black rock, which creates the special mineral qualities that marry perfectly with our Golden Promise barley malt. This unique combination is the foundation of the complex flavour and subtlety of Landlord. And it all begins with rain falling upon the Yorkshire hills. That’s why we’re always happiest when it pours.
