It’s been a busy 18 months at Bowland Brewery, not only have they relocated to become part of the exciting redevelopment of Holmes Mill in Clitheroe but they’ve also scooped multiple awards for their great tasting beer including being the winner of the 2016 Lancashire Producers & Makers Award.
Although the Bowland Brewery has being brewing beers for over 12 years prior to the move to Holmes Mill the new team felt that the various beer brands didn’t really reference the brewery’s providence. With this in mind artist Clare Brownlow was commissioned to create unique artwork for the core beers that would better link them to the Bowland location. Using pheasant feathers she painted four animals with links to the area– a hen harrier, pheasant, deer and wild boar- which now grace the bottles, beer clips and indeed the walls of the Beer Hall at Holmes Mill. The new artwork has proved to be a massive hit with sales increasing as a result.
