Leeds city centre has had a recent upgrade with the arrival of this new beer hall. The York behemoth has branched out into West Yorkshire territory – and we can’t wait to visit. Famed for its quirky beers comical names (our favourite is Rhubarbra Streisand) and bold, often playful can art Brew York in Leeds is going to be a welcome addition to its amazing beer scene.
Brew York has a huge range of beers for you to try with a selection of 20 ales – all with unique names. Their ‘Dame Judi Quench’ beer made a guest appearance on The Graham Norton Show where it was sipped by the star herself. On top of that, they always have a variety of guest beers hand-selected from their favourite breweries. If you’re feeling fruity get on their famous Hoptails (beer cocktails) or something a little stronger with their spirit collection.
Their food offering is just as inspired as their beers. And, setting up home in their new beer hall will be YUZU Street Food – who will be serving up their delicious Asian-inspired street food – bao buns, dumplings, chicken wings and katsu curries – that pair exceptionally with Brew York’s beers.
In celebration of the upcoming opening, Brew York in Leeds and Yuzu created a celebratory beer, ’The Things Yuzu To Me’. It’s described as clean, crisp and tart 5.6% IPA with the bold flavour of yuzu. And, is another example of how they take the little details into account, which makes a big difference.
The new venue, is situated on New Briggate, and like its York counterpart, you can expect a laid back environment with good food and great booze – great for catching up with friends. Bold, playful artwork will most likely adorn the walls to represent Brew York’s vision is ‘to make beers with a personality that are enjoyed across the globe’.
Independently owned, the Yorkshire brewery has made a big impact on the national scene in a small amount of time with stand out beers such as Tonkoko — vanilla, tonka bean and chocolate milk stout — and Rhubarbra Streisand — a rhubarb milkshake pale.
