Around the time that Yorkshire County Cricket Club was formed, whilst Palmerston was Prime Minister, Victoria was Queen and the American Civil War was in full swing, Isaac Poad started in business.

With York as the headquarters the company thrived supplying barley to brewers. Malting barley & brewing is what we understand, and as one of York’s’ oldest family run companies we are perhaps its best kept secret. Over 150 years in business equip us to successfully innovate and produce simply stunning session ales.
