About Us


Old School Brewery was founded in 2012 by Ian Walsh and Ren Wallbank. Initially something of a hobby, the brewery grew into something much more. We now deliver award winning beers to a huge variety of cafes, pubs and bars across Lancashire, Cumbria, The Dales and Greater Manchester, producing more beer than we ever thought imaginable.
