A picture of Hawkshead Brewery


Started brewing at Town End Farm, Colthouse, Ambleside in July 2002 using the 8BBL plant from Border Brewery Company. Opened a second 20BBL brewery and new headquarters at the end of May 2006 at the above address. Brewing ceased at the original plant in 2007 and it was sold to The Brass Monkey Brewery Company Limited. A further expansion occurred at the end of 2010. The brewery was taken over by Halewood Drinks in late 2017. In Summer 2018, they opened a second location at Hawkshead Brewery (Flookburgh) and all production was transferred there in 2019. Production was transferred back to this site in early 2022.

Beers Brewed

We do not maintain a list of beers brewed by each brewery. There may be a list on the brewery's own website. A crowd-sourced beer list is also available on the Untappd page for this brewery. For historical information, we suggest you also visit the brewery page on the unfortunately no longer updated Beermad.


The information contained above was believed to be correct at the date indicated. However we accept no responsibility for any false, misleading or inaccurate information within this site. We are not Hawkshead Brewery and have no connection with them. This is not their official web site. If you believe any of the above information to be wrong, then let us at know by contacting us.

Since the 1974 local government reorganisation there has been much controversy over many county boundaries. The links we provide cover all areas possibilities: Ceremonial Counties which are the counties for which a Lord-Lieutenant has been appointed, Historic Counties (and their allied county boroughs) which represent the position before the 1974 re-organisation and Local Authority which represents the third tear District level.
