Hawkshead Brewery: A Testament to Excellence

Hawkshead Brewery stands as a beacon of innovation and excellence in the brewing industry.

Founded in 2002 by former BBC Correspondent Alex Brodie, the brewery began its journey in a humble barn just outside the village of Hawkshead.

Driven by a passion for crafting high-quality, flavor-packed beers, Brodie’s vision quickly took root, transforming Hawkshead Brewery into a thriving enterprise.

From Humble Beginnings to a Renowned Craft Brewery

In 2006, the brewery relocated to its current home in Staveley Yard, near Kendal, marking a significant step forward in its growth trajectory.

This expansion enabled Hawkshead Brewery to ramp up production, catering to the growing demand for its exceptional brews.

The brewery’s dedication to quality and innovation has been recognized with numerous accolades, including a string of awards from the Society of Independent Brewers Association (SIBA).

A New Era of Growth and Expansion

In a landmark deal, Hawkshead Brewery secured an investment from Halewood Wines and Spirits, a prominent Liverpool-based drinks company.

This strategic partnership marked the beginning of a new era for the brewery, paving the way for further expansion and market reach.

With Halewood’s support, Hawkshead Brewery embarked on an ambitious plan to construct a new brewery, significantly boosting production capacity.

This expansion not only enabled the brewery to meet the increasing demand for its beloved beers but also opened doors to new markets and opportunities.

A Legacy of Exceptional Brews and Community Engagement
