Our story.

In a world that’s changing faster than ever, it’s comforting that some things endure the passage of time. It is over two centuries since Daniel Thwaites set out from the Lake District to make a new life for himself away from the family farm.

Daniel built up his brewery with an eye for quality and a generous blend of innovation, craftsmanship and warm hospitality. Who would have believed, six generations later, that his family would be continuing the adventure, still striving for brewing perfection, and now with a growing collection of pubs, inns, hotels and spas.
Today, Thwaites flourishes and remains steadfastly faithful to Daniel’s principles. Independent and full of character, we proudly continue the journey he started, constantly looking for improvement, always seeking to give you an experience that’s second to none.
