Brew York has to be Yorks best-kept secret. I love living in York, it’s a beautiful city. The only problem is that everyone else agrees that it’s a beautiful city. Everyone knows there are loads of cool places to eat and drink so on a Saturday, we get trainloads of people coming to drink and eat.
This is great but means a lot of our favourite places to drink are a no-go on a Saturday, we tend to hang around the edge of York and avoid those bars that are on the way to and from the station, as that’s where most of the ‘tourist drinkers’ go.

Our Visit to Brew York
Last Saturday when we went out my boyfriend mentioned Brew York and said it’s a place he wanted to go to. So we went.
Brew York can be found at the Enterprise Complex, Walmgate. It’s a hidden treasure and I’m pretty confident that you wouldn’t be able to find it by chance, making it a perfect place to go to get away from the tourists that usually crowd our favourite bars.
The brewery has 7 cask beers on rotation as well and 9 keg beer lines and 3 cider lines.
If you’re ever in York and want to check out some of the local beer, then Brew York is the place to visit!
