Overview

Lancaster brewery is a multi-award-winning brewer of beautiful beers, born and brewed in the north west of England. The company has four popular beers that form its core range - Lancaster Blonde, Amber, Red and Black and also produces monthly specials and seasonal beers from our purpose built brewery. We do brewing properly. No fuss, no shortcuts, just proper old fashioned brewing using freshly milled malt, whole-leaf hops and live yeast that, combined with our expertise, produces some of the best beer in the country. Our brewery is open as a tap house for people to come and enjoy a pint, and we offer tours of our brewing process too (which you can buy online from our website as a gift voucher for the beer fan in your life). The brewery is also available to hire as a venue for weddings, parties and events - it is a fantastic venue for a big bash for 50- 400 people within walking distance of Lancaster town centre.

It is good to know what goes into your food and drink. The tour is given by well informed members of staff and afterwards you can enjoy a pint in the adjourning bar. A pleasant afternoon out.

Been a few times generally ok, nice looking inside, variety of beers too choose from. I think some of the staff need to learn customer service skills tho, even if they are tired customer focus.
