This attractive booklet is published to mark the 150th anniversary of Timothy Taylor starting brewing in Keighley (not at the current Knowle Spring brewery but at Cook Street in the town).

This comprehensive publication covers the family management history, the expansion and the trials of the business, the company's sound direction under Lord Ingrow, and the progress to the present day.

The pub estate is listed at various times along with that acquired through the purchase of Parker's Brewery. The brewery's bottled beers and draught beers (especially "Landlord") get a good historical description along with the various expansions of the brewery.

The success of the beer is evident in the many trade and consumer awards the brewery has gained.
Good to see plenty of mentions and photos of the staff and workforce who contribute to the success of the brewery.
Full of information, history, people - a fascinating story of a successful independent Yorkshire family brewery.
