The great experiment has now ended.
For two years we tested our concept of a craft beer bar in Millom. Providing an outlet for locally brewed craft beer. It has been great fun. We love the great people who made the place work.
Unfortunately, despite working very well on a social and beer quality level, it never really held its own financially. It would have been lovely to justify supporting it as a shop window for what Hardknott does, but ultimately we have big plans that need ever bit of financial resource we can throw at it.
So, to help the much bigger picture of Hardknott’s stunning Cumbrian brewed craft beer we have decided to hand back the space in the station to the management and allow them to find an alternative use.
Meanwhile we learnt a lot about how a craft beer bar can work. Anouther time and anouther place… wait and see….
