Timothy Taylor’s Brewery Ceases Cask Production Due to Ongoing COVID-19 Restrictions

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, which have resulted in all pubs in the UK being forced to close, Timothy Taylor’s has ceased producing cask beer until further notice.

The award-winning Keighley-based brewery will continue to brew beer to support their bottled business – both for retail sales and their own online shop

During this period, the majority of the brewery’s workforce will be furloughed, with only key members of the team working part-time to keep the business active.

Paul Matthews, Sales Director for Timothy Taylor’s stated: “Once the reopening of our industry is confirmed, we can assure you that we will be ready to meet demand and support our trade customers once again (as we were last summer).

“If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch us by calling the brewery or sending an email to

“Our best wishes to everyone during this extremely challenging time for our industry.”
