We couldn't stop laughing in this podcast, we had the pleasure of securing a prized slot with Matt Jackson of Lancaster Brewery. The story of how it started, how he managed to give away land that he didn't even own to charity, why a pirate earring was important on Christmas day, and how mental health has been the priority for his team and his customers during lockdown. There is laughter and bad language, but my god it was brilliant - Thanks, Matt!Lancaster Brewery is a multi-award-winning regional brewer of beautiful beers, born and brewed in the North West of England.
Lancaster Brewery has four popular beers that form our core range - Lancaster Blonde, Amber, Red and Black and we also produce monthly specials and seasonal beers from our purpose-built brewery located on the outskirts of Lancaster.
Our beer is available far and wide, in cask and in bottles in great pubs across the UK and as far afield as Latvia and China. Stockists also include supermarkets and off-licenses regionally and nationally.
We do brewing properly. No-fuss, no shortcuts, just proper old fashioned brewing using Freshly milled malt (milled on-site the same day that we brew), whole-leaf hops and live yeast that, combined with our expertise, produces some of the best beer in the country.
Our brewery has been built to be sustainable with our power coming from solar panels on our roof and all our used malt going to feed local free-range pigs. We take the environment and our local community seriously, hosting a series of festivals each year at our Brewery site in Lancaster for people to enjoy.
We have opened up the site over time and developed it so that it is now one of the best places in Lancashire to host a party! Our beautiful brewery is open as a tap house for people to come and sample a pint daily, and we offer tours of our brewing process too.
The brewery is available to hire as a venue for weddings, parties or meetings and is a fantastic venue for a big bash within walking distance of Lancaster town centre.
In addition to the tap house, Lancaster Brewery owns a group of award-winning venues in Lancashire and Cumbria including the Sun Hotel & Bar in Lancaster, the Mill at Ulverston, and the Duke of Edinburgh Hotel in Barrow. Michelin-starred chef Steven Doherty has recently joined the team as executive consultant chef so we can also boast some of the best food in the business.
