Hawkshead Brewery Beer Hall

The Beer Hall, located in Staveley, Cumbria, is the brewery tap for the Hawkshead Brewery.

Brewery History

Hawkshead Brewery was founded by Alex Brodie in July 2002 in a 17th century barn in the Cumbrian village of Colthouse, near Hawkshead. The popularity of their beers meant that in 2006 they had reached capacity and moved across Lake Windermere to Staveley where they built a new tailor made 100 barrel brewery.


The Beer Hall is a very spacious glass-fronted building that contains a long bar adorned with numerous hand pumps dispensing the range of Hawkshead beers. Lots of wood is used throughout the building and the numerous windows add lots of natural light.

Two fermenting vessels are located at the entrance of the hall and can be viewed from both the ground and first floor.

As well as the bar area, the beer hall also contains a visitor’s centre, a sampling room, a specialist beer shop and a Beer Kitchen that serves ‘beer tapas’ to compliment the excellent range of beers.

The Beer

Expect to find most of the Hawkshead Brewery range when you visit the Beer Hall. When I visited in April 2011, 7 different beers were available – Red, Windermere Pale, Bitter, Lakeland Gold, Brodie’s Prime, Pure Brewed Organic Stout and Citrillo. Also available was Lakeland Lager.

The beers are excellently priced with the ales ranging from £2.50 for the Bitter and Windermere Pale to £2.70 for the other ales. The Lakeland Lager was £3.20.

Visiting the Beer Hall

The Beer Hall is open from 12pm daily but the closing times vary. Monday it closes at 5pm, Tuesday – Thursday at 6pm, Friday and Saturday at 11pm and Sunday at 7pm.
