Hawkshead make what they call proper beer – whether that’s on cask, keg or in bottle, a lager, English ale or margarita sour, they make beer which tastes good and doesn’t skimp on ingredients. Based up in the Lake District, they have one of the most picturesque breweries in the UK and photos on Twitter of the brewers’ journey to work always fill everyone with envy! At the moment we have their “craftier” range in, with their Kiwi hopped Pale Ale, Sundown amber ale and the aforementioned Margarita Gose all gracing our shelves. However, when we get the chance, we’ll always grab their more traditional golden ales and bitters which show how good British beer can be when made with a lot of love.
