It's the care and attention that makes our beers so special.
We drink proper beer, we sell proper beer and now we make proper beer!
We make the kind of beer we enjoy drinking.
We think we've got the best job in the world. We spend our days making and selling the kind of beer we enjoy drinking. We love having the freedom to brew beers that please our growing band of customers and of course our own taste buds.
If the beer's not right, we won't serve it.
Alain, our Brewer says: "The beer has to be just right." He takes the time to blend and tweak to make sure the flavour meets our standards. It's his care and attention to detail that keeps our customers coming back for more.
We’re brewers, but we’re also publicans
We've spent more years than we care to remember drinking real ale of all styles and flavours. This culminated in us buying our own pub, The Spinners Arms in Cummersdale, Carlisle in 2007 - where we naturally continued our research!
In 2013, we took it a step further and set up a 2.5 barrel microbrewery on site. We outgrew this quite quickly and moved to our current premises, opening a bigger plant in October 2015. We still have The Spinners Arms, it's now our brewery tap with a good range of our beer on the bar at all times!
The heritage and history surrounding brewing in Carlisle is something that really captured our imagination. We're really pleased to have brought brewing back to the city after a 25 year absence.
