Lakes Brew Co

Lakes Brew Co. is located in the heart of Kendal, housing a bespoke designed 16HL brew kit & canning line and a pop-up tap room, providing fresh beer to the craft beer scene in the Lake District & beyond.
Founded in 2020 by Matt, Michelle, Steve and Paul, the foursome bring together a passion for great beer and an ambition to be one of Cumbria's progressive and socially innovative breweries. They create a range of modern beer styles, focussing on freshness and quality.


In July this year, they celebrated their first year of brewing. They were awarded Drinks Producer of the Year at the Cumbria Food Awards and the Society of Independent Brewers – SIBA National Overall Champion of Bottle/Can Competition for their NE Session IPA. Only a year into their journey and they’re multiple award winners!


Managing Director Steve Ricketts said, ‘Adversity lit a flame within us to create something for ourselves, take control of our own futures and build a brewery that we are happy to be involved in.’
