Few parts of the world have taken the wonders of beer to heart more than Yorkshire. With a vast array of breweries and places to find their craft, it has a number of fantastic scenes for anyone after a beer or three – and we love that our bars are firm fixtures for the thirsty people of Sheffield and Leeds. But we are always looking to give people more chances to enjoy our beer – and with that in mind it is a red-letter day for the people of one particular city in North Yorkshire.

BrewDog York opens its doors at 12pm today; Friday 9th December!


We have opened bars in the centre of historic cities before – Edinburgh, Rome, Warsaw to name but three – and yet aside from strolling past the Colosseum, York has a sense of the past that few others can match. Home to the longest medieval walls in Europe it is a place that carries its history with it, and our latest bar is inside those famous defences a hundred yards from one of the iconic gatehouses that served as the entry points to the city.


BrewDog York is located at 130-134 Micklegate, YO1 6JX, and has an 800 year-old landmark to guide anyone towards it who may be lost within the jumble of streets to the west of the River Ouse. In York the saying goes ‘the streets are Gates, the gates are Bars, and the bars are always full’ – and our latest bar is a stone’s throw from the Bar on Micklegate. This historic royal entrance is a perfect neighbour for BrewDog York, and it makes our bar an ideal location for a refreshment break for anyone navigating the walls.


Speaking of which, inside our York bar GM Craig and his hand-picked crew are ready and waiting to dispense 14 taps of craft beer from ourselves and specially selected guest breweries, alongside a range of wines and spirits. For anyone who needs to head somewhere else but needs something to take with them (such as a train beer, for instance), BrewDog York offers a full growler service on any of the taps and has a selection of bottled beers to go as well. Plus it serves our justifiably famous pizza menu for anyone who needs something to sustain them!


BrewDog York opens at 12 noon this coming Friday the 9th of December, and from then on will be open from 12pm to 12am Sunday to Thursday and 12pm to 1am Friday and Saturday. Head along and discover what Craig and his team are serving, and if you have any suggestions as to the fourth city in Yorkshire we should visit for a BrewDog bar, let us know in the comments below!
