We respect the traditional art of brewing and continue to use traditional methods in our process


Ryburn Brewery Started brewing in 1990 and ceased Brewing whilst situated at the rams Head (sowerby Bridge) in March 2010. Bridgehouse Brewery purchased the Ryburn kit and commenced brewing in Keighley in March 2010 and very soon moved up the Worth valley to Oxenhope. In May 2014, Bridgehouse and Old Bear merged and the brewery moved to the Old Bear site in Aireworth Road. A new brewhouse was then built behind the Airedale Heifer pub at Sandbeds, between Keighley and Bingley, and the brewing is now done there. To this day Bridgehouse Brewery still use open top fermenters and traditional brewing menthods. .
