Book Tickets Online


Behind the Flying Duck pub is an old barn that has been restored into a micro-brewery and is home to the Wharfedale Beers.

If you're interested in seeing Wharfedale's first Brew Pub in full operation from top to bottom why not book a brewery tour?

Start by sampling the beer, meet the brewer then head off for an informal walk around the brewery.

You will be shown the brewing equipment, be guided through the processes involved and given the opportunity to munch on some malt and sniff some hops.  You'll be wandering around a beer lover's paradise!

Wharfedale Brewery produces five core beers, a number of specials and a collaboration brew with  neighbours Ilkley Brewery.
