    A day out in the North West, I've wanted to do this one for a while and visited with Camera Shy. :)

    A Bit of History………..

    Mitchell's was established over 140 years ago in 1865, the company was founded by William Mitchell and is now run by the founder's great-great-grandchildren. The story goes that a chance meeting with a friend provided the money William needed to build his own brewery. Once the brewery was built, William went on to build a number of large hotels and inns, strategically sited within the Lancaster and Morecambe area.
    A large part of the site was designed by W A Deighton in 1901. Deighton was a well-known brewery architect who was also responsible for the Grade II-listed Cook Street Brewery in Salford.
    In 1999, the Mitchell’s Brewery in Lancaster closed down, and was bought in part by Thwaites in Blackburn. Lancaster Bomber has since been available from Thwaites public houses after being acquired in the takeover.
    The company no longer brews its own beer, but maintains the family traditions of running good quality establishments offering an excellent range of cask ales, fine wines and home-cooked food in comfortable surroundings. :)
