About

Hey, welcome to O'Briens, an independent bottle shop and beer café on the internet and in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire.

We love beer! We drink it, enjoy it, socialise over it, collect it and most of all, enjoy sharing it.
It's been a bit of a journey since we first started out during lockdown in 2020 - it feels like a lifetime ago, but at the same time it also feels like we're just starting to really find our feet and navigate through this weird and wonderful world.
We are Luke & El, we are a married couple & both have backgrounds in the creative industries... So this is all a bit new to us. But we're enjoying trying.
Everyone always asks us 'why did you decide to do this?' ... Well we will try and summarise quickly. We have always wanted a bar, always wanted to work for ourselves and get out of the agency world. It's no fun.
We were inspired by the bottle shops & bars in the USA that we managed to visit right before Covid-19 really kicked off, so when we got home and El was put on furlough we thought f**k it, let's give it a go!
We started online, it went well, we saw a space in Holmfirth & thought there could be a gap & well the rest is history.
Short history, but history nonetheless...
So yeah, join us on this journey! Let's just enjoy beer for what it is... IT'S BEER! It's not pretentious, it's just a f**king drink. And if you like Coors Light, then you like Coors Light. We don't care, like what you like. We just stock what we like, and hope you like it too.
