THE TOUR EXPERIENCE

THE CASTLE BREWERY

A jewel in the Lake District crown. Jennings Castle Brewery has 190 years of brewing heritage and along with the award winning ales, it forms part of the fabric of the Lake District.

Jennings Brewery was founded in the village of Lorton (situated between Keswick and Cockermouth) in 1828 by John Jennings (1783 – 1876), son of William Jennings (1751 – 1848) who was a Maltster by trade.

The traditional values which the Jennings family instilled in the business are still respected, and combined with a modern day commercial approach, they have undoubtedly contributed to the success of Jennings ales today.
