Bowland Brewery

The brewery started life in 2003 when the founder decided to follow his dream to establish a viable micro-brewery. Over the next ten or so years the Bowland Brewery went from strength to strength picking up lots of awards and commendations along the way. The core range of cask beers has continued to expand, as has the number of pubs, bars and restaurants supplied. To keep up with demand the brewery itself has also had a little growth spurt. The founding principles of using only the finest ingredients in the perfect proportion with an obsessive attention to detail remain the guiding principles of today. The process has simply been scaled up a bit.

Brewery Tours

The brewery, based at Holmes Mill in Clitheroe and owned by James’ Places, offers visitors a chance to see a fully operational brewery as well as an opportunity to share enthusiasm for beer.

Scheduled brewery tours run on Wednesdays, Thusdays and Fridays at 3pm allowing you time to enjoy The Beer Hall afterwards should you so wish.

They can also arrange tours for groups of 15 or more at other times by prior arrangement.

Includes a 45 minute brewery tour, one pint or three 1/3rds of Bowland Ale - £10 per person

Includes a 45 minute brewery tour, two pints or six 1/3rds of Bowland Ale. Plus a choice of main course from the Brewery Tour menu served in The Bowland Beer Hall - £19.95 per person

To treat yourself or buy as a gift please call on 01200 443 592

Beer buffs can also join the Bowland Beer Club which grants access to special offers and exclusive discounts on Bowland Ales at Holmes Mill, The Shireburn Arms and the Waddington Arms. Members are also informed of events taking place at Holmes Mill and the latest beers available in the Beer Hall.

To join the Beer Club, visit www.bowlandbrewery.com/beer-club and fill in your details.

In March 2015 the brewery relocated to become part of an exciting redevelopment of the Holmes Mill complex in the heart of Clitheroe. The new home, complete with mill chimney, albeit truncated, features a beer hall, brewery tap and live music venue.
