Rudgate Brewery is in its 30th year and the brewery is situated at the heart of Yorkshire in the Vale of York in the former ammunition building of RAF Marston Moor Airfield.
The name comes from the old Roman road of `Rudgate’ which runs through the airfield. This road led the Vikings along our vale defeating the Romans in their steps. This road and its history is what instigated the main theme of Vikings for the brewery.
