When it comes to boss breweries, it’s safe to say we have our fair share in Liverpool. So if you love real ales and craft beers just as much as we do, you won’t want to miss out on a taste of what Liverpool’s breweries have to offer.

The city’s brewing heritage dates back to 1858, when the iconic Cain’s Brewery - which is now Baltic Market - opened for business. Sadly, Cain’s Brewery closed in 2013 due to debt, but the good news is, these unmissable local breweries are proudly preserving Liverpool’s legacy.

Love Lane

Tucked away on Bridgewater Street, you’ll find Love Lane Brewery, Bar & Kitchen. This spectacular brewery and distillery sits in the heart of the Baltic Triangle, and houses an array of beers and gins in an atmospheric setting. 

At Love Lane, you can opt for a guided tour of the sizable renovated factory, or simply sit down to sample the impressive menu on offer. The perfect night out with family and friends.

Black Lodge 

One of the city’s small-batch breweries, Black Lodge Brewing - located on Kings Dock Street - also calls the Baltic Triangle home. This innovative brewery prides itself on being a hive of activity, where trialling new techniques and flavours comes naturally to the team. 

Black Lodge serves its range of beers on cask, keg, cans and crowlers so you can sit in or enjoy your drink al freso in the outdoor seating area.

Dead Crafty Beer Company 

Based on historic Dale Street, Dead Crafty Beer Company is one of our favourite breweries to grab a drink and catch up with mates. This cosy spot opened its doors after its owners experienced drinking in a craft beer bar for the first time while holidaying in Texas. 

Determined to bring a holiday memory home to Liverpool, Dead Crafty Beer Company was born. The brewery is home to rotating taps, ensuring you’re always sampling something new. Plus, it’s dog-friendly, so you can bring your four-legged friend along for the ride.
