Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery Co Ltd was established February 2009.
The company owners all share a passion for real ale and were keen to re-establish a local brewery. Kirkby Lonsdale has had brewing at its heart for centuries until the trade had all but died out.
After many months of planning and preperation, the brewery was finally installed by Porter Brewing Company and is situated at the Old Station Yard, Kirkby Lonsdale. Since opening, we have endeavoured to get our beer to reach all across the North of England and have opened our own beer barn in the heart of the town.
The name of the first beer produced, “Ruskins”, comes from the iconic Ruskin’s View which Turner famously painted in 1816. In keeping with the local theme all of the brewery pump clips are branded with an image of the local landmark, Devils Bridge, in the centre and all of our beer names have a link to the local area. We are a company with local values at heart and produce that has proven a hit with our customers. We love what we do and can’t wait to see what the future has in store.Buy our beer Contact Us
Called in with my wife on a quiet Monday night and was pleasantly stunned with the size, décor and choice of drinks available. Even when quiet, has a great atmosphere and is a beer tasters heaven. Even the latest offering is burbling away in the corner. Lovely place with a friendly welcome and is worth a visit for a visit to the gents only.

Popped into the brewery on a Sunday afternoon - we found the choice of brews to be wide, catering for every beery taste, plus a good selection of imported beers and ciders. There is a small selection of food and soft drinks available. All in all, an excellent find, and well worth a visit if you are in the area.
