How did the brewery come about?
It was established in 2005 with the ethos of sourcing natural ingredients, producing high quality beer and presenting the products in a modern and stylish way.
What sort of drinks are produced?
Lancaster Red is a premium bitter with a malt dominated body, while Blonde is a golden pale ale with citrus flavours. Bottled ciders include the dry and punchy Copper, and Blush, which delivers a distinct sweetness.
How do the tours work?
Visitors see for themselves the technical side of things, observing the magic at work in fermentation vessels and liquor tanks. Tours are rounded off with a chance to sample a choice of beers, accompanied by hearty fare selected to complement the ales.
Interesting tour and nice to see how a small Lancashire brewer is growing, good point is that your "free" pints can be taken as bottles especially important if you are driving

Not much to see in the actual brewery but appreciated the fact that we could take bottles away

A great tour at Lancaster Brewery. A bit of a walk from the train station but fine for us. The tour lasted about an hour - really informative and enjoyable with a great guide. Brewery itself is only small so not that much to see. Beer excellent. Served by the half or full pint. We had it in halves so we could try a wide variety! They did offer take out beers to enjoy later if you were driving. We didn't eat here but hubby bought a pork pie from the shop next door -very tasty!
