About Thwaites


‘Providing suburb hospitality in outstanding properties in great locations’


Daniel Thwaites has been based in Blackburn since 1807. The company has a long history of making consistently high quality beers at the Star Brewery as well as delivering good Northern hospitality at our estate of pubs, inns and spa hotels.

At the centre of Thwaites is an estate of over 250 tenanted and leased pubs, stretching from Birmingham to Carlisle and North Wales to Yorkshire. Our pubs have an award winning support team who are dedicated to helping our customers make the most out of their business. With a wide range of flexible tenancy agreements, our team prides itself on personal service and open and honest approach.

With more than 200 years of brewing experience we are passionate about applying our skill and care to brew beers of the highest quality, using all the best natural ingredients available. Our team of brewers are committed to creating innovative and quirky craft brews along with well-loved traditional ales. Our beers are sold exclusively to Thwaites own pubs, Inns and hotels.
