different settings over the bay.

We’re so proud of our brewery that we encourage you to come and experience our high standards and the magic of producing fine, handcrafted ales for yourself.
The Brand. Premium Style For Premium Ale
The famous views across the Morecambe Bay are the inspiration behind the branding of the Cross Bay Brewing Co.
The Cross Bay Brewing Co. are proud of the local heritage and landscapes which led them to name the beers after the different views as the sun crosses the sky and over the mountains of the Lake District.
The origins of the Cross Bay brand name
‘Cross Bay’ relates to the area in which the brewery is based and the intriguing stories that surround the historic Bay Crossings. Crossing the Bay could be incredibly dangerous due to the fast changing tides and quick sands. Due to this, most of the travellers owed their lives to the Guides who found and marked the safest routes across the sands with laurel branches.
Today there are still two official Royal Guides who take groups across the Bay for walks and runs, often for charity.
Brewed by our award winning team
Cross Bay’s head brewer Nick Taylor is back at
Cross Bay brewery. Nick first became involved in brewing over ten years ago. In March 2012 after only being in operation eight months, the brewery was awarded its first Champion Trophy at the Lancaster Beer Festival, winning the Strong Bitters category with Zenith. Zenith has also gone on to win Beer of the Festival at both Morecambe Beer Festival and Burnley Beer Festival.
Nick and the brewing team, (Arthur and Dan) are looking to the future and their passion and dedication to brewing Real Ale is already recognised as a success.
That hasn’t stopped the brewery team’s quest for quality beer as they now look towards consistently producing more award winning ales for the nation to enjoy. And enjoy they have, as our beers have been available from as far North as Loch Ness and as far South as Southend so far...
