Whippet Brewing Co.
9 Brown Place
Founded January 2015 in Leeds by leading beer writer Sam Parker, Whippet Brewing Company saw its first test batch served at fellow brewer Malcolm Bastow’s East vs West Festival in May of the same year. An official launch of four core beers was held at Whitelock’s Ale House in the city in early June, with the first batches being brewed at Burley Street Brewery. With a 12 BBL kit to be installed at the brewery’s home site near Elland Road Football Stadium later in the year, as well as a 60 seat brewery tap, 2015 is a busy year for the 5-strong team.
With Sam at the helm the team also includes Head Brewer Ross Nicholson, a local brewer who trained under one of the city’s leading microbrewers and Technical Brewer James Aspinall, a home-brewer with nearly 3 years industry experience after a career in hospitality management.
