About Lakeland Brewhouse

The Lakeland Brewhouse (formerly Stringers Beer) is based in the South Lakeland market town of Ulverston.

It all started with our Head Brewer Jon Kyme, a man with a passion, and since 2008 we have been creating a variety of real ales which have become popular with beer aficionados and occasional drinkers alike.

Lakeland Inns acquired the brewery in 2018 and now the family-owned brewery’s ales can be found across the North West.

We Combine the best of traditional and modern brewing techniques, using Lakeland water and the best quality ingredients, to ensure we always produce 100% proper beer.

What people think?

We have been dealing with Stringers since Lakeland Inns took the brewery over. The customer service is excellent and the team is always really helpful. We are a business which sells real ales, so they are a good fit for us. The gluten-free beers are particularly popular.

What people think?

I would definitely recommend Stringers. We have served their ales for a number of years and they are always very popular. We try to get them in at least twice a month. The team is very good to deal with.

Johan Pretorious, Manager, The Wainwright, Keswick

What people think?

The fact we order Stringers speaks volumes. We serve what our customers enjoy, we always like to try something different and Stringers ale always gets a very good reception.

What people think?

The staff at Stringers are great and are always on call to deliver. We’ve been dealing with them for a number of years now. Their beers always go down very well with our customers and we always have one on tap.
