About Us

Founded as ‘Eastwood and Sanders Fine Ales’ in 2002, after the amalgamation of The West Yorkshire Brewery and The Barge and Barrel Brewing Company, we renamed as Elland Brewery in 2006 and have been trading under that banner ever since. The industry has seen many micro-breweries come and go in recent years and we take great pride in the fact that we have been brewing ales that have stood the test of time and are now established locally and in the wider region. Indeed you can sample our beer all over the UK and our multi-award winning 1872 Porter has been a mainstay at hundreds of beer festivals all over the country since taking the Supreme Champion Beer of Britain crown in 2013 – more of that later!
