Welcome to Jolly Sailor Brewery

A brewery, bottle shop and taproom

The Jolly Sailor Brewery is an artisanal family-run micro brewery and bottle shop located in the grounds of The Olympia Hotel in Selby, North Yorkshire.

We offer a variety of traditional ales varying in colour from a light straw yellow hue through amber and ruby, to a rich dark black colour. We also provide a plethora of ABVs for the session drinker to the seasoned quaffer. 

We've travelled the high seas to find a variety of hops, yeast and malts to produce our hand crafted traditional ales for you to enjoy in Cask, Bottles and Bag in Box.

Bag in Box

Beer in a bag. Bag in a box. Cask ale with longevity. Simple.

Bag in Box beers are perfect for any occassion and because of the way they are packaged, they degrade slower than cask and keg beer. They keep perfectly in a cool place for several months without spoiling making them perfect for commercial premises or for the home bar enthusiast. They also have a list of other benefits you can read about in our Bag in Box section.

All of our beer can be supplied as Bag in Box and comes as standard in 20L (35 pints approx.), 10L (17 pints approx.) and 5L (10 pints approx.) volumes.

Brewery Tours and Experience Days

We love cask and craft beer at the Jolly Sailor and as a result are starting to brew beer for keg dispense as well as cask, bottle and bag in box.

We always have time to talk brewing and show our customers how beer is made.

If you want to have a glimpse behind the curtain then come along on a brewery tour or emerge yourself in the jargon and technicalities of the industry with one of our brewing experience days.

Circle of loaf has arrived

Circle of Loaf bread beer has arrived! Tonight will be our first official tasting of our new bread beer with some of the guys from Bluebird Bakery. This deliciously creamy bread beer is made with the breadcrumbs of surplus loaves. We then cropped some yeast from the brew to return to the bakery where some more bread will be made. A true 'Circle of Loaf'! Read more
