How it all began

At Love Lane Brewery we blend together the old with the new. How could we not? Our home was once part of Liverpool’s historic docks, now named one of the coolest districts in the UK.  (The Times, 2017)

We’ve created a new brewing company that is passionate about creating beers for a new generation of beer enthusiasts.

Brewing family

Love Lane is a craft beer, first brewed in a converted railway arch at Liverpool’s Love Lane.

One of the city’s most loved beers, we make Love Lane Pale Ale and Lager as well as limited edition ales.

We’re home to one of the oldest names in Liverpool brewing, Higson’s and The Ginsmiths of Liverpool’s award-winning gins. When we became custodians of the historic Higson’s brand, we created new cask ales. 240 years old in 2020. The Higson’s name is twinned with Liverpool’s brewing history, familiar to generations of beer drinkers. We’re not just a home for beer.

Our brood also includes The Ginsmiths of Liverpool distillery where we make Merchant navy, Dry, the award winning Marshmallow gin and some experimental editions.

In 2016, we began work on transforming two dilapidated warehouses in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle. What had been an old rubber factory was renovated into an 18,000 hectolitre brewery, capable of brewing 3.2 million pints. In December 2017 we opened to the public, housing three bars, a kitchen, tasting room and a multi-dimensional event space.

Under our new company name Love Lane Brewery, we’re expanding outside of Liverpool. Flying the flag for the city, we’re sharing the love by taking our favourite beers (and gins) to the North West and beyond.
