and live on Freeview channel 276
Bini Brew Co was founded in the spa town before relocating its brewery to a larger site in Leeds this year. The Sheepscar taproom, in Sheepscar Street, launched at the end of June and is open every Friday and Saturday.
The taproom at the original brewery site in Ilkley’s Wharfe View Road, which had restricted licencing permissions to sell alcohol, opened for the final time this weekend. But Bini Brew plans to open a new site in the centre of the town next month, which will be open every weekend.
In an Instagram post, the brewery said: “All good things must come to an end. We are really sad to be saying goodbye to our original taproom in Ilkley but are excited for the future.
"We've had great times with great people there, but with the brewery no longer at the site, it makes little sense to keep it going when we aren't licensed to open every week.
"We will soon announce our new location in Ilkley, which will open every week, and we are very excited about it.”
