The Leeds Brewery is an independent brewery established in June 2007 in Leeds, UK by former local radio presenter Michael Brothwell. The company uses a 20 barrel brewing plant located in a trading estate on the outskirts of the city; it is capable of delivering 150,000 pints of beer a week, and produces five regular brands, including Leeds Best, a 4.3% best bitter, and the award winning strong mild ale Midnight Bell. The company also produces a series of monthly specials such as Gathering Storm, a 4.4% stout, in October, and New Moon, a 4.3% black IPA, in February. The company had six pubs near the centre of Leeds, with a microbrewery upstairs at The Brewery Tap and one pub in York city centre but these were sold to Camerons Brewery in 2016.


Leeds Brewery was established in June 2007[1] by university friends Michael Brothwell (a former BBC Radio York presenter) and Sam Moss[2] and has since been producing a range of permanent and seasonal cask ales.

In 2008 the Leeds brewery asked Leeds United supporters to help name a new beer in an online poll. The favourite was to name the beer Radebeer after Leeds United player Lucas Radebe. The beer was available in local pubs, with 10p from every pint sold going towards the Leeds United transfer fund.[3]
