The Taphouse Brewpub will combine a working brewery with a high-quality bar offering an ever-changing choice of more than 30 draught real ales, craft lagers and ciders, as well as an extensive range of bottled and canned beers, quality wines and artisan spirits.
The venue will stage a series of drinks festivals and also bring an innovative approach to its food offering. During the week the menu will focus on platters while, at the weekend, street food operators will bring their own unique tastes to the venue’s kitchen.
The Taphouse Brewpub will also host a regular entertainment programme featuring music and spoken word performances, with an emphasis on supporting local artists and contributing to the Fruit Market’s unique cultural vibe.
It will also have a dedicated function room which will be available for corporate and social events, product launches, private parties and wedding receptions.
The opening capitalises on the growing popularity of brewpubs that offer discerning drinkers a wide selection of craft beers brewed on the premises in a high-quality environment.
The new business has grown out of one of the waterside community’s pioneering ventures, the Yorkshire Brewing Company micro-brewery, which has been hand-crafting quality beers in Humber Street in the heart of the Fruit Market for more than six years.
Work is well under way transforming Yorkshire Brewing Company’s premises in Humber Street to create the new venue and breathe new life into yet another of the Fruit Market’s former fruit and veg warehouses.
The concept is inspired by destination brewpubs in major UK cities and abroad such as Howling Hops and The Bohemia in London, The Gas Works Brew Bar in Manchester, and Warpigs brewpub in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Roll on the opening in December!
