Modern style brewery producing a range of fine quality real ales. The brewery tap is on Bridge Street in Darwen where at least 4 ales are on hand pull at any one time along with occasional guest beers and ciders.

Go here regularly to watch live music, very intimate atmosphere with some great musicians. The beer is always tip top and at £2.20 a pint cant be beaten. They have opened a restaurant upstairs recently - not yet tried.
