AWESOME CRAFT BEER & CIDER
Grasmere Brewery's brews change with the seasons. In the summer, we brew our famous Rhubarb & Red Berries Cider (6.8%).
Our water comes from Thirlmere Reservoir. It is extremely soft water: 1.68 on the clark scale.
Grasmere Brewery's beers are cold-conditioned, & served bright in the usual English way. (Except for our IPA: which has a beautiful hop haze.)
Grasmere Brewery brews cider with 100% real fruit juice, pressed mechanically from whole fruit here in the brewery. We have an old-fashioned stainless roller press, which is a wonder to behold. Not from concentrate!
All Grasmere Brewery beer & cider - including real ale! - is packaged in kegs or recycled aluminium cans. At our small size, this is more hygienic than cask, & gives us finer control over carbonation.
Grasmere Brewery ciders are 100% vegan & gluten free.
We brew everything by hand, at Lake View Farm, Grasmere. Here is Mr. Ward doing the business!

We work with a small number of owners / managers, helping them achieve 75% gross margin - or higher - on their wet sales, in the central Lake District. We are priced competitively versus national brands. "Craft" should mean local & awesome - not expensive.
As well as making exotic ciders, we also brew some classics: our house Helles Lager (3.8%), for example.
Being small is wonderful. It means we can focus on quality, not scale. Right now, we are so busy that there is a waiting list for permanent installs of our beer & cider. If you want to join this waiting list, please get in touch.
1) We do not offer "guest" or one-off barrels.
2) We only install kegs where there is proper refrigeration i.e. a cold cellar or fridge.
3) If you want to order cans, our minimum bulk order is a half pallet, i.e. 900 cans.
Our goal is to work only with the best bars in the Lake District, who care about fantastic fresh local beer & cider, sell craft drinks at a fair price, & work hard to get it right. If that's you, get in touch. For trade enquiries, call Paul on 07840 059561.
