Thwaites’ New Brewery Opens

News: August 2018

The first brews have gone in at Thwaites’ new brewery.

The Lancashire company has constructed a new head office and brewery at Mellor Brook, some five miles away from its previous home in Blackburn. The site has opened a month ahead of schedule, after the Blackburn brewery was trashed by trespassers in May and put out of action. The first beer, Thwaites Best Cask, will go on sale later this month.

Most of Thwaites' brewing assets, including the successful golden ale Wainwright, were sold to Marston’s in 2015, leaving Thwaites producing smaller-run beers such as the mild Nutty Black and its speciality beer range.
