The Story

Magic. Rock. Two words that will make any beer fan feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Brothers Richard and Jonny Burhouse, aided by head brewer Stuart Ross, have captured the imagination of craft beer fans far and wide since starting the brewery in Huddersfield back in 2012.

It began life in the rather humble setting of a family business outbuilding. For 40 years Richard and Jonny’s folks have been importing and wholesaling crystals, or as the brothers know them... “magic rocks”.

Their intention from the outset was clear... “to brew modern flavour-forward beers inspired in part by US craft breweries” said Rich shortly after their launch.

Beers such as Cannonball and High Wire set out the brewery’s stall; incredible pale ales, as promised, inspired by beers the boys had been enjoying from over the pond. The core range has remained relatively unchanged since launch, but they’ve dabbled around the edges with beers that have a broader, more global influence, as well as brews that are more deeply rooted in their native Yorkshire.

In 2015 the brewery moved to a new site in Birkby, Huddersfield and opened The Magic Rock Tap, an onsite bar and events venue well worth checking out if you’re in town. From there the brewery has gone from strength to strength, cementing their status as one of the O.G’s of the UK craft beer scene.

For tonight’s beer, we have Dark Arts. A beer that blends four malts and bags of English & German hops to deliver a decadently deep and indulgent experience. A luxuriously smooth mouthfeel is followed by spicy hop notes and full flavours of chocolate, liquorice, blackberries and figs. The finish is rich and satisfying with a lingering roasted bitterness.
