This brewery is located in an ex-stable building at the back of the Strands Hotel in Nether Wasdale. Brewer, Mark Corr, who moved to the hotel in 2007 with wife, Lesley, got his kit, most of which came from Saddleworth Brewery, almost immediately but didn't get started on brewing until Early February 2008.

February 2012

Owner Mark Corr decided to increase to a 5.5 barrel plant due to increased demand for his product, and the desire to accelerate the bottling side of the business. The intention is for all 23 of his beers to be available in bottles by the middle of the year and ALL will be bottle conditioned and can be bought in a handy customised takeaway pack of 3 for £10.00 or individually.
They brew this many (more than anywhere else in the county and probably in the top 10 in the country) because he wants to offer people something they can enjoy and this approach caters for all palates and at very sensible prices. He has been distributing his beers nationally since the back end of last year.

More beers:
