Our Story

Located at Kirkland News in Kendal, Adrian & Jackie Norris have been working as independent retailers since 2009. Hailing from Bolton & Manchester respectively, the need for a lifestyle change resulted in a move to Kendal that year. We've developed the store over time, obtaining an off sales licence in early 2012. Since then we've improved the beer offering to the current range of around 160 different beers. 

When not working you might find us walking our Labrador Dave, frequenting Hawkshead Beer Hall in Staveley or the Factory Tap in Kendal or, in Adrian's case, hitting a little white ball around a big field with metal sticks to the point of great aggravation!

As lovers of indie music and former regular gig & festival goers (it's those Manchester roots) you'll also find us make an annual pilgrimage to Kendal Calling & other gigs when time allows.
