Set up early 2006 by Paul Swann and Anita Garnett, this brewery is on the outskirts of Ulverston, in Diamond Buildings, Pennington Lane, Lindal, a building that once housed the winding gear for the Lindal Moor Mining Company. The original inspiration was the sad closure of the Hartley's Brewery in Ulverston and to produce a replacement for the locally brewed and much loved Hartleys XB. Test brews for this were produced at Foxfield.

The 5 Barrel plant came from the closed Whitley Bridge Brewery and has been used to create a wide range of beers appealing to as many different palates as possible, and they are mostly named in tribute to one of Ulverston's most famous sons: Stan Laurel, denoting the best-known moments from Laurel & Hardy films. Main beers are Another Fine Mess 4% (pale) , Laughing Gravy 4% (light copper), Lonesome Pine 4.2% (pale honey), Stout Ollie 4.3% (stout) and Harvest Moon golden ales 4.2% and the newer, highly popular, Flying Elephants golden ale, 3.7%.

A light ale, “Bridies Brew” was brewed twice in April to help publicise the “save Greenodd post office” campaign, (Bridie is the post office dog). Watch out for seasonals or other specials.

Another Fine Mess, Laughing Gravy and Lonesome Pine are all now available in bottles (available in Booths supermarkets).

Ulverston brewery moved into new premises in the centre of Ulverston, finally brewing there in Autumn 2010) Brewery tours are now available.
