Cumbrian Ales

Our brewery in the Lake District

We started brewing In Loweswater in 2003 in an old outbuilding behind Kirkstile.

With demand far exceeding supply it was decided in 2009 to move brewing to a dedicated custom built brewery in Hawkshead on the shores of Esthwaite Water.

Many awards have followed including the ultimate accolade of Champion Golden Ale of Britain for the fantastic Loweswater Gold.

We can now brew up to 80 barrels a week (a barrel is 36 gallons) with a team of 8 but demand still exceeds supply!

Our beers are all produced with care and pride using the wonderful Lake District Fell water and the best of English malts, together with quality hops from around the world.

Our beers are available to take away in bottles. Gift packs of 3 beers make a superb present and we also offer 5 litre mini casks of Loweswater Gold.
