Leeds’ newest brewery set to launch at city’s oldest pub


Whippet Brewery Launch

Wednesday 10th June sees a further addition to the burgeoning brewing scene in Leeds with the launch of Whippet Brewing Company.

Whippet Brewing Company was founded by Beer Writer Sam Parker in January and aims to produce consistently interesting beers for the beer-savvy drinker. Initially launching with four core beers Sam commented “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.”

Launching to the public this coming Wednesday Dave Herbert, manager of Whitelock’s adds “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.


Press launch is to be held from 18:00 Wednesday 10th June at:

Whitelock’s Ale House

4 Turk’s Head Yard




All proceeds on the night will be donated to West Yorkshire Retired Greyhound Trust ( with a photo call to include adopted dogs being available from 18:00.
