We officially welcomed our new brew house in Flookburgh to the clan on Friday 12th October.....it’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.
