Doncaster Brewery was established in January 2012 at an industrial unit at Clay Lane West on the outskirts of Doncaster.

The Brewery was launched in September 2012 by Colin Joy – former Head of Tourism at The Little Plough with the first two beers being Sand House Blonde at 3.8% and Gold Cup a 4.5% golden bitter.

In January 2014 premises were acquired in the centre of town on Young Street and a Tap room was opened.

The Brewery Tap has evolved over the years from serving just beer and cider to offering a wide range of drinks options.

On the bar are 6 real ales, generally 4 brewed on the premises and 2 guest beers. There are 6 rotating traditional ciders on hand pull from dry to sweet, perry to fruit. There are 3 keg lines with a light beer and a dark beer and always Budvar Czech Pilsner. There are two fridges full of world beers in bottles and cans. Also available are gin and tonic, wine, soft drinks, loose leaf tea and coffee.

Since opening the Tap has received numerous CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) awards, the most recent being Pub of the Year 2022-23, Cider Pub of the Year 2022-23 and Yorkshire Cider Pub of the Year 2022-23 Highly Commended.
