We are a proudly independent brewery based in Meanwood, Leeds. Founded in 2010, by the late Simon Bolderson, Ridgeside built a sterling reputation on producing excellent cask ales, with a particular focus on hop-forward pales and a specialty of beer from the wood.

In 2015, our current team, formed by Jorge Gonzalez Moore, Matt Lovatt and Juan Mendoza bought the brewery beginning a new chapter in Ridgeside’s story. We aspire to continue the fantastic legacy of Ridgeside, whilst embracing the attitude and stylistic possibilities of the modern UK craft beer movement. 

In addition to our solid lineup of long-time favorites, we are constantly experimenting with different styles, flavors, and aromas and producing seasonal, limited-edition specials. Whether tinkering with specialty malts, long conditioning lagers, or perfecting our kettle souring technique, we’re committed to bringing a fresh and better approach to brewing beer.
