Local tipple:
The best beers
brewed in Bradford

The brewing industry is alive and well in Bradford, with several regionally and nationally acclaimed breweries operating in the district. So you won’t need to travel far to get your hands on a top quality, locally produced tipple. We’ve selected a few worth trying…​

SALT 

Alpaca DDH IPA | A.B.V. 6.6%

This double dry-hopped IPA forms part of the core range at the recently opened Salt Beer Factory. Intensely hoppy with strong tropical notes. Unfined, unfiltered and vegan friendly. 

Saltaire Brewery 

Velocity | A.B.V. 4.1%

An easy drinking session IPA. Hazy golden complexion, crowned with a foaming white head. On the nose, subtle citrus aromas of grapefruit and lemon rind are joined by some melon, pale grains, bread and sherbet notes, followed by a hint of spearmint and resinous pine. 

Bingley Brewery 

Blantyre Red | A.B.V. 5.0%

Blantyre, a robust Ruby ale, is brewed using Yorkshire water, quality malts and single hopped with the British hop Bramling Cross. Earthy spicy aromas present first, followed with flavours of fruity blackcurrant and spice, finishing with a smooth bitterness at the end. 

EYES Brewery 

Aquarius | A.B.V. 2.7%

Brewed with Hüll Melon and Enigma and given a big dry-hopping of Denali. This is an IPA that carries a big fruity hit of flavour much more than its small 2.7% abv may suggest. Coming at you in an eco keg so you know it’s going to be a quencher. 

Wishbone Brewery 

Abyss | A.B.V. 4.3%

A rich dark stout whee the malt does the talking. Bitter and hoppy throughout with sweet and nutty notes. Definate hints of dark chocolate. 

Goose Eye Brewery 

Chinook Blonde | A.B.V. 4.2%

A blonde beer bursting at the seams with American Chinook hops, which provide it with one of the most distinctive and captivating tastes you might ever try. With copious amounts of flavour and an abundance or aroma. 

Timothy Taylor’s 

Landlord | A.B.V. 4.3%

The drinkers’ favourite, a 4.3% classic pale ale with a complex citrus and hoppy aroma. A recent survey revealed that Landlord has the highest proportion of drinkers who call it their favourite ale. CAMRA’s Champion Beer of Britain four times over.
