WHO WE ARE?
Brewers of bold, innovative beers since 2002, based in the heart of the Lake District
Our range is an eclectic mix of beers inspired both by the flavoursome hops of the new world and classic European styles and flavours.
Big hopped Pale Ales - Classic British styles - Juicy IPAs - Crisp Lagers - Stouts and Porter - Sours
At Hawkshead Brewery we make the sort of beer we like to drink – think distinctive, full of flavour, handmade, and perfectly crafted by our trained brewers. We’ve never designed a recipe based on cost.
Every day we handle, taste and smell our raw materials – soft Cumbrian water, malt and hops and our own unique strain of Brewers Yeast.
We can brew up to eight times a week on our 20bbl kit at Staveley. That’s 25,000 litres a week or 2.3m pints a year!
HISTORY OF BREWERY
Hawkshead Brewery began in 2002, in a barn just outside the village of Hawkshead in the Lake District.
One of the new wave craft brewers, creating highly hopped flavorsome beers, which was rarely seen in cask.
In 2006 we relocated to the Mill Yard, beside the River Kent at Staveley, brewing on a new 20 barrel Brewhouse and built a brewery tap - The Beer Hall.
