Welcome to DARK HORSE Brewery

Fine Ales from the Yorkshire Dales!

We take great pride in producing hand-crafted, traditional Yorkshire ales brewed in a converted agricultural Laithe Barn just outside of Hetton in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park.

We have been brewing Dark Horse ales since 2008 and have now ‘racked up’ over 30 years of commercial brewing experience.

We use only the best British Maris Otter malt, pure Dales water from our own borehole, whole leaf hops and our own unique strain of brewing yeast.

Our ales can be found in many reputable drinking houses, bars, hotels and restaurants in the Yorkshire area and beyond. A helpful list can be found in ‘On The Bar’ to help you locate where. Bottled Hetton Pale retailers can also be found here.

We love what we do and hope you do too. If you would like to keep up to date with what we are doing then please join us on Facebook.

Cheers! from the Dark Horse Brewery team
