With the official opening of Hardknott On Track things have come full circle for Hardknott Brewery, The brewery originally started in the Woolpack Inn, berfore Dave and Ann sold up and moved the brewery to Millom so that they could focus on making great beer.
4 years on and with the new brewery site in full swing including a new bottling line and a couple of new additions to the Hardknott Team, Dave felt the time was right to dip his toe back into the water and get back behind the bar.
The bar, situated on Millom train station has been a rollercoaster ride with all sorts of hurdles to overcome but the bar is now ope . It serves the full range of Hardknott beers plus a good selection of interesting beers from Europe and further afield, so there should be something for everyone.
Dave told us:
“We’ve been looking to open a bar for a while. There are many reasons for doing so. Some reasons are for purely business motivations, however, that is not all.
