The Riverhead Brewery Tap is one of three brew pubs within the Ossett Brewery estate. Our micro-brewery housed in the basement produces small quantities of hand-crafted beers from the finest English malts and the best hops from Britain and around the world.

With small brew-lengths we can be more experimental and produce a massive range of styles of beers, including many one-off, limited edition brews. We typically brew five different beers each week, allowing our customers to embrace the artistry and dedication of an unrivalled selection of flavourful beers.

The Riverhead brew-pub was opened in 1995, and Ossett Brewery purchased the site in 2006. The core range are named after  local reservoirs, with the height of the reservoir relating to the strength of the beer.  Brewster Lisa Handforth has successfully added new beers whilst retaining the old favourites.

The Riverhead is Ossett Brewery's smallest plant – a two brewers barrel plant producing just eight firkins per brew. The majority of Riverhead Beers are sold through the pub but a small amount is available for Beer Festivals and occasionally to free trade customers.
