The Halifax Steam Brewing Company was founded by Mr David Earnshaw in 1999. Strongly flavoured, clean, organic brews were at the epicentre of his vision. It began in his back garden, in a stone built garage with a collection of vessels and barrels, experimenting with a variety of recipes and techniques.
In 2006, the brewery expanded into a brewery tap titled the Cock o’ the North. To ensure that the consistent quality of the beer was always enjoyed, the brewery remained only metres from the Cock o’ the North bar. This made sure that there was a direct ‘brewery to tap’ concept that was the first of its kind in the area.
