East Lancashire is fortunate to be the home of over half the real ale breweries in the whole of the county with nine lying with the confines of the branch. They range in size from large national suppliers such as Thwaites to smaller micro-breweries like Hopstar, Moonstone and Red Rose. Between them they brew many fine cask conditioned ales including some former Champion Beer of Britain winners.
