Hidden away behind the Black Bull in Coniston is the Coniston Brewing Company.
This outstanding brewery, run by Ian Bradley, is where Bluebird Bitter is made. This 3.6% session beer won Supreme Champion Beer of Britain 1998 at the Great British Beer Festival Olympia London and has continued to be awarded accolades of recent years.
To the pure waters of the Coniston hills - add the finest Challenger hops and wonderfully roasted pale and crystal malts. Allow the Coniston Brewing Company to use all their skill and instinctive know-how to create what must be described as the finest fully matured cask conditioned Ales.
