WharfeBank is a 100% privately owned, independent Yorkshire-based brewery dedicated to the fine art of brewing premium cask ales.
It is our mission to create and deliver a range of distinct, refreshing and entertaining beers that are perfectly suited to the diverse and demanding tastes of the real ale connoisseur, interested amateur and occasional drinker alike.
WharfeBank Brewery was founded in April 2010 in a converted paper mill on the banks ofthe River Wharfe just outside the village of Pool in Wharfedale and a couple of miles from the local market town of Otley. We sit on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, within easy reach of Harrogate, York, the North Yorkshire Moors as well as Leeds and the towns of West Yorkshire.
By combining tradition with technology, experience with innovation and passion with patience, we have not only created a core range of wonderfully unique beers but can also guarantee that all-important consistent high quality which landlords and consumers can rely on.
We supply our core range and special guest beers throughout the North of England and beyond. Our beers are distributed personally where possible by the WharfeBank team. Using the excellent SIBA Direct Delivery Scheme our core ales are able to reach many drinkers in the northern area. We also distribute to national pub companies, and supply cask ale specialist wholesalers, where our quality is always maintained.
With a range of beers that will have your customers returning again and again, donít delay – call or email WharfeBank today for an order or additional information.
We are pleased to showcase our beers at our three pubs. All the pubs offer a range of WharfeBank Brewery beers along with guest ales from carefully chosen breweries. And there’s always a range of lagers, wines and soft drinks too.
All our pubs are individually run by experienced managers or landlords, all empowered to run them “as their own businesses” to make each pub unique, and offer the customers what they want from their local pub.

We can accommodate up to twenty people at a time on the tour, and we ask for a minimum of five (we do our best to combine smaller groups on convenient dates).
The cost is £15 per head, which includes the tour, samples at the brewery, and “Pie and Peas” lunch with a pint at the Half Moon in Pool in Wharfedale village.
All tours must be pre-booked (at least 2 weeks before) and paid for in advance. Tours are currently held on most Saturday lunchtimes, but please call to check availability on a specific date. If you require other days we will do our best to accommodate you.
