Bowness Bay Brewing has built an enviable reputation for the consistent taste and quality of our ales and lagers. We are constantly on the look out for the best ingredients and new ideas, whilst not losing sight of our customers’ favourites. Swan Blonde for example was one of the first beers we ever brewed and to this day it remains to be one of our most popular pale ales. Since then we have had a number of award-winning additions to the Bowness Bay family, such as Swan Free and Steamer IPA , both of which were awarded bronze at the highly regarded World Beer Awards and Helles Lager, which received a prestigious silver award.
Our semi-automatic, four-vessel steam-heated brewhouse has the capacity to produce 30,000 litres per week. Sounds great, looks great and brews great! It also gives us the flexibility to meet the ever-increasing demand from our customers.
Producing cask, keg and bottled ales and lagers, we owe the consistency of our beer to our two live strains of wet yeast: one for lager and one for ale. Carefully selected for their subtle taste profiles, they’ve been nurtured over several years and give our beers that delicate, soft feel in the mouth.
But we have one more trick up our sleeves for the unique taste of our beers: The ultra-soft Lake District water is the secret to the exceptional smoothness of our beers.
