  • Hut8 Media presenting Ben from sales with the app.

    We’re the first brewery in the UK to launch a mobile ordering app for trade customers. The app enables users to place an order for beer anytime anywhere.

    The app uses the latest caching technology which allows data to be used and stored offline meaning the app is accessible at all times, even down in the cellar where there may not be a data connection. A publican (with a login & password) can browse the beer list, view artwork, tasting notes and prices and submit an order which will be stored on the device and sent once a connection is available.

    Designed by local company Hut8 Media the catalogue style application has been developed for use on smartphones and tablets (currently for Android and iOS devices only). It uses our branding and clear graphics which make it easy to navigate.

    Sales Manager Anne said “The app adds an extra customer service for those who want it. We’ve listened to publicans and responded to their requests to be able to order beer in their time and not first thing on a Monday morning with everyone else”.

    Trade customers can download the app, free of charge, from the App Store or Google Play Store and register for a login. Just search ‘Hawkshead Brewery Sales’.

  • We were one of five UK breweries to be featured at Norwegian innovative craft beer festival What’s Brewing. The two day festival in the south-west coastal town of Stavanger, better known as the ‘oil capital’ in Norway, was host to 28 European and American craft breweries.

    We exhibited 8 beers including one-offs Wild Wheat (a wild yeast fermented wheat beer), Oat Wine (an 8.8% beer aged in cider brandy casks) and Green Juniper & Hemp Double IPA (brewed as part of an international collaboration project).

    Ben and Head Brewer Matt, alongside volunteers, staffed the brewery bar for the duration of the festival which was held at the town’s old Pilsner brewery, Tou Scene. The 218-strong beer list represented breweries from 9 countries and included the likes of Nøgne (Norway), Mikkeller (Denmark), Birra Del Borgo (Italy), Brouwerji De Molen (Netherlands) and Evil Twin (USA). Representing the UK alongside us were fellow craft brewers Beavertown, Buxton, Magic Rock and Siren.

    Strict Norwegian alcohol laws prevented the festival from ‘advertising’ the beer list, however word of mouth on social media meant it was a sell-out. Over 2000 people attended the event and all tickets available on the door were snapped up quickly.

    You can view more photos from the event on our Facebook Page.

    Head Brewer Heads to Norway

    We’re one of five UK breweries to be featured at Norwegian beer festival ‘What’s Brewing’. The festival is being hosted by our friends at Lervig Aktiebryggeri at Tou Scene, an ex-brewery, in the south-west coastal town of Stavanger.

    Better known as the ‘oil capital of Norway’ Stavanger is aiming to create a world class beer festival and by the looks of the beer list they’ve succeeded. 28 breweries representing 9 countries are showcasing 218 different beers over the two day event. Earlier this month we shipped kegs of Wild Wheat, Green Juniper & Hemp Double IPA (collab with Lervig), Damson Stout, IPA, Oat Wine (collab with Wild Beer Co.), Iti, Sundown and Brodie’s Prime Export. Also from the UK will be beers from Beavertown, Buxton, Magic Rock and Siren.

    Norwegian alcohol laws actually forbid anyone involved in the organisation of the festival from ‘advertising’ the attending breweries but fans and bloggers are not restricted by the same rules, you can view a list of breweries and beers on Norwegian blog 'Die By The Beer'. The list includes the likes of Nøgne, Mikkeller, Birra Del Borgo and Brouwerji De Molen.

    The festival runs from Friday 31st October to Saturday 1st November, both Head Brewer Matt and Ben from Sales will be in attendance over the weekend.
