Lancaster Brewery

C2 Investments are the owners of both the Lancaster Brewery and operates four highly respected hotels and pubs, including yours truly "The Sun Hotel and Bar"
The new and improved "Lancaster Brewery and Visitor Centre" opened its doors recently after a change of location and doubling in size to keep up with the growing demand of our produce, now located up at Lancaster Leisure Park, the Visitor Centre Shop, Bar and Cafe are definitely an asset to the Brewery experience.

Our mission is quite simple - to produce excellent quality beer through diligently sourcing the finest natural ingredients whilst presenting our product in a modern and stylish way.

While our methods of brewing are traditional in every aspect, we are also scrupulous in our attention to detail with our ingredients. We assiduously avoid the use of sugars, caramels, chemicals and other modern beer ‘improvers’ and yet we are purposefully contemporary and maverick with the marketing of our beer.

Cask ale brewing is one of the few quintessentially British manufacturing sectors that is still thriving today. The qualities of Lancaster Brewery combine a number of attributes synonymous with the county of Lancashire – hard work, diligence, innovation and courage

The beers...
