Holder & Co helps Beer Hawk secure 10 year lease on new 62,500 sq ft premises

Wetherby based ale provider Beer Hawk has secured a 10-year lease on a Leeds warehouse to support its further growth.

The firm has taken 62,500 sq ft of a newly constructed unit which is part of the phase one development at Towngate Link in Leeds.

Established seven years ago, Beer Hawk was formed by its co-founders Mark Roberts and Chris France, with the aim of offering speciality bottled ales from artisan breweries all over the world – from Germany and New Zealand to Belgium and Norway.

Beer Hawk will greatly benefit from the newly constructed warehouse, which includes a working height of 12 metres, two-storey grade A office accommodation – with the option to install a further floor – and a large 40-metre-deep secure concrete yard.

Beer Hawk’s head of operations, Martin Rourke said: “Leeds was a primary focus for us, as it provides improved transport and staffing infrastructure, as well as enhanced welfare and leisure facilities. The site exceeds our expectations and certainly meets Beer Hawk’s vision for future growth.”

Towngate was represented by partner at Knight Frank, Iain McPhail and director at Gent Visick, Paul Mack. Beer Hawk was represented by Owen Holder of Holder & Co.
