A New Barnsley Brewery

Courtesy of the 'bloke from Hull' we have been advised of the start of another new Yorkshire brewery, this time in South Yorkshire. 'Two Roses' have announced their intention to start brewing around March this year with a plant based at Darton, near Barnsley.

They hope to have their 8 barrel plant ready for test brewing then and hopefully, the first brews will be available in April. There is no information as to what style of beer they intend to brew but the information we have been given suggests a core range of beer supplemented with seasonal specials. If they can emulate the success of Barnsley's 'Acorn' brewery then we should be in for a treat.
Release from the Two Roses Brewery

The New Year will see the opening of a new brewery in Barnsley, the old
Shaws carpet factory at Darton will be the home of "Two Roses Brewery". The
new brewery will be operational from March 2011. Finishing touches to the
brew house are still being made and the brewing equipment is scheduled for
installation in March. The 8 barrel plant has been commissioned from David
Porter a well known brewery consultant and successful brewer, test brewing
will commence in March and the first batch of beer will be available in
April. Beer will be available in bottles and 9 gallon casks and can be
purchased direct from the brewery.

The name of the brewery stems from the fact that the owner is originally
from Lancashire but has now made Yorkshire his home. A long time member of
Camra the head brewer and owner has been passionate about real ale for a
number of years.
Brewery tours will be available and can be organised by contacting the
brewery or by phone on 01226 388375 or 07771942908.

The brewery plans to brew a number of regular beers complemented during the
year with seasonal beers.
