The Rudgate Brewery was established in 1992 and is situated in the heart of Yorkshire, Vale of York. The original brewery was situated in the former ammunition building of RAF Marston Moor Airfield which was home to Halifax bombers during World War 2. In 2010/11 the brewery expanded into a modern new facility on the same site. The brewery name comes from the old Roman road of "Rudgate" which runs through the old airfield. This road led the Vikings along the vale defeating the Romans in their steps. This road and its history is what instigated the main theme of Vikings for the brewery.

Over the years the brand identity is updated and re-launched with subtle changes, a change of Logo or a new font.
Sometimes this brand update is done by the new owners after a brewery has been sold, other times just to give the brand a fresh new look on the ever growing market.
Below are some notes to help identify some of these changes and an aid to reference the year of the glass.
