Moorhouse’s Brewery was established in 1865 by William Moorhouse, a Burnley man who took great pride in his town and his craft. The Brewery remained in the Moorhouse family for generations and even today the owners maintain the traditions and values established all those years ago.
Three of Moorhouse’s products are available in bottle, Blond Witch, Pendle Witches Brew and Black Cat. Both are available through Morrisons and Booths. In addition to these domestic sales, the bottles are exported to Canada, Holland, Belgium, France, Italy, Sweden and Cyprus. Exports to the USA also include Blond Bitch and Owd Ale. Pendle Witches Brew is also brewed under license in Cyprus.
Moorhouse’s now employs in excess of 50 full and part-time employees, almost half of whom are employed directly at the brewery.
Over the years Moorhouse’s beers have won numerous awards at beer festivals up and down the Country. In addition to these Moorhouse’s beers have gained recognition at the Brewing Industry International Awards, the “Oscars” of the brewing industry. This award ceremony takes place every two years and the prizes are keenly fought over by breweries from around the world. In April 2004, Moorhouse’s walked away with a clutch of awards.
