Yorkshire’s oldest brewery, Samuel Smith’s Brewery, was established in 1758. The brewery still has its own cooper making and repairing all its oak casks.

All Samuel Smith’s naturally conditioned draught beer is served from the wood.

All Samuel Smith’s beers are brewed solely from authentic natural ingredients without any chemical additives, raw material adjuncts, artificial sweeteners, colorings, flavorings or preservatives. The original well at The Old Brewery is still in use, with the brewing water being drawn from 85 feet underground.

Winter Welcome Ale is a limited edition seasonal beer brewed for the short days and long nights of winter. The beer is fermented in ‘stone Yorkshire squares’ or fermenting vessels made of solid slabs of slate, resulting in a full body. The malt character is balanced against whole-dried Fuggle and Golding hops. Enjoy this one in front of an open fire.
