    We've Expanded.....

    We officially welcomed our new brew house in Flookburgh to the clan on Friday 12th’s been a long hot summer and now we can look to the future and what this expansion means for us as a brewery and team. 

    We will initially produce up to 240 beer barrels (8,640 gallons or 69,000 pints) beer each week, looking to increase as we gear up to export Hawkshead Lager and Windermere Pale across Eastern and Western Europe, the Americas and Asia.

    Head Brewer, Matt Clarke, is overseeing both sites to ensure our unique processes and ingredients are prevalent in both the core range and small batch brews.

    Innovation is still at our heart as we grow, with the original Staveley Brewery continuing to produce small batch beers, this will see more experimental beers and extending our barrel ageing programme amonst some exciting projects pushing the boundries we have dreamt of in the past few years.

    The Beer Hall has also had a make over, creating a beautifully relaxing and fully inclusive space for all to enjoy the freshest Hawkshead beer straight from the source, and with our newly appointed Head Chef bringing an new exciting vibe to the menu, it truly relfects where Hawkshead is and what may come in the future.

  • Our Rainbow Beer Revealed....

    Yellow was brewed in Collaboration with Modern Times Beer in San Diego, in a truly tansatlantic, transcontinental collaboration. After a lengthy hike in the desert by the sea that is San Diego, a vision struck us simultaneously. A vision of bright fruit and vibrant rays. Of quaffable sunshine in a bottle. Brewed with Pilsner, wheat, and spelt and hopped with Hallertau Blanc and Amarillo. We fermented this with Modern Times house wild yeast and a wildly foraged yeast found on Loganberries. After fermentation Yellow rested in red wine barrels and then went through a secondary refermentation on over 3lbs/gallon Southern California Apricots.

    Beer name: Yellow
    Beer style: Mixed culture barrel aged saison w/ apricots
    ABV: 7.5%

    Pours a pale starlit gold, with a light white head. Aroma of sunripe apricot skin and a flavor that matches followed by a juicy flesh finish. A balancing tartness and bright fruitiness round out the sensory experience.”

    Find Yellow, and the other rainbow project beers pouring at our Tap – The Beer Hall on 25th August!

  • The International Rainbow Project began back in 2013 and has been an exciting and innovative project for us since, make life long brewing friends, creating and exploring styles that once were never even thought of.

  • Thursday 06/28 sees this year's Key Lime Tau released, KLT will be available from midday on Cask, Keg and in bottle to take away at The Beer hall and to order online.

    We will also have the Crooked Stave version of Key Lime Tau in Keg and Bottle for you to try both versions side by side!!

    Our kettle-soured, lactose infused Golden Ale brewed with fresh lime zest and lemon grass to taste biscuity and strongly of lime... just like a key lime pie. We called it Key Lime Tau because of the doubling up - it was a collab between two brewers, has been brewed on both sides of the Atlantic and mathematically Tau is 2 x Pi (3.142) or τ = 2π, which is also the strength - 6.28%... simple really! First brewed in collaboration with Crooked Stave (USA) for the 2015 International Rainbow Project.

    Why have one day when we can have a full weekend to celebrate this years release of Key Lime Tau!

    With Key Lime Tau on Cask, Keg and in bottle we'll also have an American inspired menu available from Thursday all weekend with dishes such as Buttermilk Chicken, Frickles, Clam Chowder and New Orleans’s style Po’Boy but that's not all......Saturday night we're host our very first Northern Soul Night! with Cosmo Vinyl Experience on the decks!
