Lakes Brew Co.
Inspired by the beautiful county of Cumbria, the four founders of Lakes Brew Co. are providing us with some fantastic taste sensations through their beers. From the hoppy, easy-to-drink DDH Pale Ale to the crisp, tropical West Coast IPA, there’s a favourite available for everyone who tries them.
The Lakes Brew Co. story
After being made redundant at the start of lockdown in 2020, co-founders Matt, Michelle, Steve and Paul joined together for a passion project: a progressive, sociably innovative brewery that extolled a strong ethos of support and collaboration.
And so, the Lakes Brew Co. was begun. It was a big dream that was begun at an uncertain time, but their knowledge and dedication was to pay off.
The team of four came together with a shared ethos and continue to work with each other to bring Cumbria and the world a selection of modern craft beers. From its home in Kendal – also known as the “gateway to the Lake District” – the micro-brewery offers a selection of delicious core beers as well as unique collaborations and specials, all influenced by beloved areas of Cumbria and the Lake District.
The Lakes Brew Co. has been celebrated country-wide with award wins from SIBA (for National Overall Champion of Bottle/Can Competition) and – more locally – Drinks Producer of the Year in the Cumbria Food Awards. And all this in 2022 – just one year after the brewery was opened! We’ve got our eyes on these local brewers – their flavours are fantastic and we’re sure they’ll only become more and more popular.
