Founded by a member of the T & R Theakston Ltd family who following the takeover of Theakstons by Scottish & Newcastle PLC, opened this brewery in September 1992. It is located in the old maltings of Lightfoot's brewery. Much of the plant came from Hartleys (Ulverston) Ltd and has been expanded on a number of occasions to keep up with demand.
