Cumbria Brewery Co Ltd was established February 2009 by four "local lads", Plug, Roger and Stuart Taylor and Alan Stephenson.
With a history of three generations of the "Taylor" family being in the pub trade it comes as no surprise they would eventually have a dabble at brewing their own.
Father and son Plug and Stuart who already run The Orange Tree Hotel, a local free-house in Cumbria decided to join forces with Plugs brother Roger from Taylors Outdoor and Army Surplus store in the town, and Alan Stephenson of Stephenson and Son coaches. All of whom share a passion for "real ale" and a keen interest in establishing a local brewery.
After many months of planning and preperation the brewery was finally installed by Porter Brewing Company and is situated at the Old Station Yard, Cumbria.
Cumbria Brewery pump clips have been designed to include a picture of a local landmark, Devils Bridge.
The name of the first beer produced, "Ruskins", comes from the famous "Ruskins View" which Turner famously painted in 1816.
It is planned that all future beers names will have some significant link to the town and its history.
