Our Ales Of Outstanding Natural Beauty are brewed right here beneath the chimney at Holmes Mill – just behind our famous Beer Hall – where a dedicated team of artisan brewers crafts a collection of cask beers inspired by the outstandingly beautiful landscape of Bowland.
Bowland Brewery started life as a microbrewery on the edge of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, making a selection of beers named after the scenery and wildlife of this picturesque corner of Lancashire.
Beers like Hen Harrier, Boxer Blonde and Pheasant Plucker have quickly established themselves among local ale aficionados – earning the brewery a string of awards.
As the reputation of Bowland Brewery cask and bottled beers spreads, increasing demand from further afield required a relocation to larger premises at Holmes Mill, where visitors are welcome to tour the brewery and sample our ales in the fabulous surroundings of the Bowland Beer Hall.
Take a peek behind the glass and see how we create our wonderful ales on a Bowland Brewery tour.
Scheduled brewery tours run on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays at 3.00pm. We can also arrange tours for groups of 15 or more at other times by prior arrangement.
All tours are followed by a tasting in the Beer Hall and guests can also choose to have a bite to eat.
Renowned wildlife artist Clare Brownlow has a long-standing connection with Bowland Brewery, having designed the artwork that adorns the hand pumps and bottles of Bowland Brewery beers.
Based in the beautiful Scottish borders near Hawick, Clare uses natural pheasant feathers to achieve the signature spots and splashes that are the hallmark of her work. Find out more about Clare and her work at www.clarebrownlow.co.uk.
Holmes Mill has a packed programme of live events: hosting everything from live music to cookery demos and tastings, comedy nights, Supercar Sunday and wedding fairs.
