OUR HISTORY

In 1858 Timothy Taylor began brewing beer in Cook Lane, Keighley.  In 1863 he set up and built a larger brewery in Knowle Spring.
The superb spring water that wells up from deep within the Pennines is still used today in the process.
The brewery remains in the Timothy Taylor family and is now the last independent brewery of its type in West Yorkshire.  This independence enables Taylors to survive as one of the few brewers still brewing cask ale in the way it has always been done.
"Taylor Taste" is achieved by using only the finest natural ingredients, taking pride in the brewing process and allowing full time for the ales to ferment and mature, thereby creating a unique family of beers.

We have come a long way since 1858.  Our beers have won many awards and worldwide acclaim.  See below to view our product range.
