The Brewery

If you've never heard of us, Grasmere Brewery is a small craft brewery, at the heart of England's Lake District. We make classic English drinks with a modern twist. From refreshing lager to fruity cider, hoppy IPA to a quaff-able Bitter. We brew what we like to drink.

Everything is manufactured by hand in some 19th century barns, at Lake View Farm, Grasmere.

And our tap room The Good Sport is just a short stroll away!

EXCITING NEWS! Thanks to Cumbria Country Council & the Fells & Dales Project, for supporting our new canning line! Our famous Rhubarb & Red Berry Cider and delicious Apple Cider are on sale in cans in The Good Sport now!

This will be the first drinks manufacturing ever in Grasmere. It is on a small scale, admittedly, but will help to create green manufacturing jobs, with 100% recyclable packaging (aluminium & cardboard). We will be turning out some smashing stuff. 



Beer, Cider and Soda

Pale Ale – 4% pale session bitter, with pale English malt, Citra, Simcoe, Ekuanot & Mosaic hops. Hop additions are made late in the boil, to extract maximum citrus aroma, without excessive bitterness.

Stout – 5% special bitter, with black and crystal malts, Target, Toyomidori and Bramley hops. Hints of chocolate and orange tart. This beer is a calorie-packed bruiser, with massive body. Perfect for mountain bikers or fell runners.

Bitter – 4% red session bitter, with caramalt, crystal and pale English malt. The latest in our single hop editions! This time it is Crystal hops, added late in the boil. Ruby red smooth.

Hells Lager – 4% late-hopped lager, with English lager malt, and alpine Saaz hops for a clean, uncomplicated beer. Our best-seller! Nicely carbonated and ice-cold, at 1°C.

Scrumpy – 3.8% hazy apple cider. Sweet English apple juice fermented dry, and then back-sweetened. Apples vary with the season, so never the same twice! Served fizzy and cool.

IPA - 6.6% made with Amarillo hop. Heavily dry hopped for a full on hoppy blast of deliciousness. Brewer's favourite!.

Rhubarb & Red Berry Cider – 6.8% delicious pink fruit cider. For hazy hot afternoons. This summer cooler is fermented with champagne yeast and brewed with fruit from Cumbria. Served bubbly and cool, like adult pop!
