Fodor's Expert Review Hawkshead Brewery

Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere Winery/Brewery/Distillery
It may not have the Lake District's most picturesque setting—in Staveley, between Windermere and Kendal—but for beer lovers, there are few better places than this brewery, which brews and serves more than a dozen award-winning beers, including some by guest brewers. Sample the wares and "beer tapas" (sweet corn and coriander fritters with apricot chutney, chickpea, and red lentil dal) at the large bar, where there's often live music in the evenings. Brewery tours happen daily at 1 pm and include two half pints of Hawkshead beer.
