Old School Brewery

The Old School Brewery was founded in 2012 by Ian Walsh and Ren Wallbank. Initially something of a hobby, the brewery grew into something much more. Now delivering to a huge variety of pubs and bars across the Cumbria and Lancashire area and are producing more beer than they ever thought imaginable.

As you might expect a lot has changed in the world of beer since we made our first brews in 2012... palates and people's minds have opened up to the huge variety of taste and flavour possibilities that make up the wonderful and diverse spectrum of beer styles. Old School Brewery produces a unique range of beers, that reflect the heritage of their surroundings using only the finest available ingredients sourced from across the UK.

Five of their beers Detention, Hopscotch, Textbook, Headmaster and Blackboar are available to purchase in 500ml bottles. There are also two, three and five bottle gift sets available to purchase from them directly or through selected retailers, restaurants and bars.

The Brewery also hosts a variety of special events throughout the year, ranging from food and beer evenings to our very own music nights - Open Nights. 

It is an amazing location, set in an old barn with the unique 'Old School' twist. Cozy up next to the real wood fire in the colder months, or bask in the Lake District sunset during the warm summer nights. You are certain to fall in love with the bar's quaint charm and fantastic location.
