Kirkstall Brewery: Kirkstall Road dairy depot plans submitted


Kirkstall Brewery Company has submitted plans for a new headquarters in a former milk depot off Kirkstall Road.

Plans include a restaurant and cafe, brewery, new offices and a shop, as well as new external cladding to the building and new storage silos.

The proposals for 100 Kirkstall Road can be viewed in full here. A range of lagers, ales, stouts and speciality beers will be brewed on the site.

It’s understood the brewery, which dates back to the 1800s,¬† is looking to relocate to its new base later this year.

Brewing in the area dates back the 12th century when Cistercian monks originally  built Kirkstall Abbey. The brewery is currently based on Wyther Lane, Kirkstall.

UPDATED 4.45pm: The original photo accompanying this article (of student accommodation) has been changed to better reflect the content.




  1. This Kirkstall Brewery is no relation to the one that is now student accommodation, they have only been around for about seven years. Good luck with the new site though.

    • Thanks for the clarification, Simon – we’ve replaced the photo with something a little more traditional!
