The Bowland Brewery started operating in April 2003, brewing on a one Brewers Barrel (BBL) plant in a store room at the Bashall Barn farm shop a few miles North West of Clitheroe.
In August 2003, a five BBL brewery was installed in an industrial unit in Accrington, awaiting completion of its home at Bashall in what used to be the farm's milking parlour. This equipment used to be installed in Southsea at the Fuzz and Firkin brew-pub. The brewery was moved to Bashall, England's smallest town, in late January 2004 and brewing started again the following February.
Every aspect of the brewery business is continually reviewed in our efforts to produce beer that is loved by landlords and their customers. These efforts were rewarded in 2004 with a silver medal at the Peterborough beer festival and Best Bitter for Sawley Tempted at the Norfolk and Norwich festival.
The Bowland Brewery is situated a few miles from the geographical heart of the United Kingdom in an area that epitomises all that is good about this beautiful country.
