Hawkshead 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 Hawkshead Brewery 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
Hawkshead Brewery make the sort of beer everyone likes to drink – think distinctive, full of flavour, handmade, and perfectly crafted by their trained brewers.

Every day they handle, taste and smell the raw materials – soft Cumbrian water, malt and hops and our own unique strain of Brewers Yeast.

They can brew up to eight times a week on their 20bbl kit at Staveley. That’s 25,000 litres a week or 2.3m pints a year!
