Hawkshead Brewery

Hawkshead Brewery

Hawkshead Brewery, based in Staveley Yard, near Kendal, is set to grow further.

The brewery has agreed to an investment deal with Liverpool drinks company – Halewood Wines and Spirits.

Under the deal, Hawkshead will build a new brewery, expand production and find new routes to market its popular beers.

The brewery was founded in 2002 by former BBC Correspondent Alex Brodie.

The much-loved Lake District brewery currently brews one million litres of beer a year.

In 2006, the brewery moved from its original base in Hawkshead to Staveley near Kendal and built its well-loved beer hall.

Subsequently, the business opened a further facility at Flookburgh, Cumbria.

As a result, they built the very popular beer hall (pictured) winning numerous brewing awards along the way.
