Leeds' newest brewery launches at Whitelock's

Press release:
Leeds’ newest brewery is set to launch at the city’s oldest pub today.
Wednesday, June 10 sees a further addition to the burgeoning brewing scene in Leeds with the launch of Whippet Brewing Company.
It was founded by Beer Writer Sam Parker in January and the new brewery aims to produce consistently interesting beers for the beer-savvy drinker.
It will launch with four core beers.
Sam said: “We are proud to be adding to the great brewing heritage here in Leeds and are honoured that Whitelock’s Ale House have agreed to host our launch during their 300 year celebrations.”
Dave Herbert, manager of Whitelock’s, added: “We have been part of the Leeds beer scene for 300 years now and it is right that we support our local brewers. Good local beer has always been at the heart of everything we do here, we are even using it in our food for the launch, and it is great to be able to serve the first pints from a much anticipated brewery.”
With initial batches being brewed at Burley Street Brewhouse, the plan is to install a 12 BBL brew kit and 60 seat brewery tap at their home near Elland Road Football Stadium in the city before the end of the year.
