Our Story

We are a Cumbria based online real ale and craft beer shop, established in 2020 but our history in the area is mainly from running the award winning Drovers Rest pub at Monkhill. After seven years of hard work and passion, we decided to lease the pub to some good friends and take a new challenge; providing the best beers from Britain’s best independent breweries to local and national customers

Our focus is great local ales from Cumbria but our range is expanding all the time to include breweries from around the UK, bringing them to your doorstep so you can enjoy them at home wherever you live.
