Who We Are

Great Corby Brewhouse

The Iconic Arch of Great Corby

The Old Forge of Great Corby has foundations dating back to 1833. Craft has always been at the heart of our site. From blacksmiths to brewers – masters of trade have always graced our plot to produce an end product of the finest quality.

Handcrafted Beer

Every beer tells a story. We like to think ours will engage you in a complex tale of tradition & heritage with tangible, contemporary notes thrown in for flavour. An anecdote from the dented pewter tankards of old to the sleek modern pint glass of today. Cheers!

Our Clientele

Our beers are far reaching and indiscriminate, but we’ll never forget our roots. The flat-capped farmers, weary hikers, and general grafters of Cumbria – they make up the lifeblood of our humble brewery. 

Our History

Founded in 2009, our Cumbrian Craft Brewery is located in the beautiful village of Great Corby.

Water. Malt. Yeast. Hops

Our Beer Profile

Our beers are well known for their slightly lower ABV, making them an easy favourite with sessional drinkers who enjoy a good few hours in the local, country pub.

We produce a welcoming, familiar brew – many a Corby Blonde has been sunk by a roaring fireplace with man’s best friend snoozing beneath an iron legged, round top.

The Basics

It’s no secret that the 4 main ingredients of beer are water, barley malt, yeast and hops – simple, right? On paper yes, but we have taken the time to ensure that even the basic ingredients arrive to us from the highest quality, sustainable sources in the UK and further afield. 

Variety

Taste preference and pallet differs in all of us. Producing variety and flavour showcases the artistry and skill set of our talented brewers. Our range of core beers is eclectic enough for all to enjoy and is complemented throughout the year with our seasonal and guest ales.

Our English Craft Brewery is located in the heart of Great Corby in what was the old village forge. The building itself is immersed in tradition as it was firstly used by craft ironworkers in 1833.

Our signature trademark between 2016 and 2019 depicted "Bob" - a hard-working ironsmith of yesteryear demonstrating his craftsmanship in the yard behind our famous sandstone arch. A yard used today for cask logistics and integral processes in our brewing.
