Idle Beerhouse – Meet the Brewer Kirstall
Our next meet the brewer is with Kirkstall brewery!
Kirstall Brewery was inspired by the rich brewing history of Kirstall, one of the villages that later formed the city of Leeds. Back in the 12th Century the Cistercian monks founded and started the area’s brewing legacy when they built their own brewhouse. This was followed by the old Kirstall Brewery, which followed the rich brewing tradition laid down by the monks, helping quench the thirst of workers at the nearby Kirstall Forge, which was also a legacy of the Abbey. The brewery was founded in 2011, close to the site of the first Kirkstall Brewery and just a sling shot form the original Abbey brewhouse. They have since moved to their current location and our celebrated beers fastidiously brewed to the same exacting standards of the Cistercian monk, except they have a modern twist and are worshipped far and wide.
