We are a proudly independent brewery based in Meanwood, Leeds, United Kingdom. Founded in January 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 July 2015, Jorge Gonzalez Moore, Matthew John Lovatt and Juan Mendoza purchased the brewery, commencing a new chapter in Ridgeside’s story. Our current team; Josh, Matt, Jorge and Tom, continues the fantastic legacy of Ridgeside, whilst embracing the attitude and stylistic possibilities of the modern craft beer movement.


In addition to our solid line up of long-time favourites, we are continuously investigating and experimenting with diverse styles, flavours, and aromas to brew limited-edition specials. Whether tinkering with dry-hopping, long conditioning lagers, or perfecting our kettle souring technique, we are committed to bringing a caring, fresh and improved approach to craft brewing and delivering a variety of real ales in all packages.


Our philosophy is simple; brew a beer to be remembered.
