In 1858 Timothy Taylor began brewing beer in Cook Lane in the Yorkshire town of Keighley. He struck upon a successful formula and in 1863 set up and build a larger brewery on the Knowle Spring where the company has remained ever since.
The brewery remains in the Taylor family and is now the last independent brewery of its type left in West Yorkshire. This independence enables Taylor’s to survive as one of the few brewers still brewing true cask ales in the same way it has always done.
Landlord, a 4.3% ABV Pale Ale is the flagship brew and holds the accolade of being the most awarded beer in Britain, having won CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain a record 4 times.
We are delighted to be back at RunFestRun 2020 after meeting so many fans in our fabulous tipi bar in 2019. We will be offering an extensive range of hand-pulled Timothy Taylor’s cask ales, our new dry – hopped pale, Hopical Storm, in keg as a refreshing pint, plus lager, cider, spirits, wine and soft drinks. Look out for Timothy Traylor – our bar on wheels, which is also coming too!
All for that taste of Taylor’s.
