Waterloo / Clubs Brewery
The buldings at the back of the Waterloo Hotel were used for the brewing of beer in the 1860's. Around 1880 it is speculated that Youngs built a new brewery in Chapmangate and brewed beer there until around 1910, when the premises were possibly acquired by the Cattle brewery. Youngs also owned The Waterloo Hotel and they also owned the Ousegate Brewery at Selby. In 1921, the Cattle brewing business was acquired by the Tadcaster Tower Brewery Co. and then they traded as York & District Clubs breweries who produced the 'Loco Ales' from 1925. The 1927 O.S. map of Chapmangate shows two breweries, with the site of the one illustrated below that the locals called 'The Clubs Brewery'.
