Putting the ale in Kirkby Lonsdale

Brewing was, for centuries, at the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale, until the trade sadly died out. Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery was born out of a genuine passion for real ale and a drive to re-establish a local brewery.

In the December of 2016 the Kirkby Lonsdale team opened the doors to a new tap house, The Royal Barn. Located in the heart of Kirkby Lonsdale town centre, The Barn are proud to offer 12 handpulls and 8 keg taps along with an extensive collection of over sixty different craft beers from around the world.

The Brief

Royal Barn came to us with a website that was quite old and needed updating. Site navigation was an issue and it was getting difficult to update. The site needed to clearly feature 3 individual businesses, The Royal Barn, Kircabi Coffee and Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery, whilst ensuring that they all felt like a family.

Business Objectives

Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery’s main endeavour is to reach across the North of England with their beer. Our aim was to create a website that would not only portray their passion and truly reflect their brand, but also help to increase their reach.

The Process: Understanding, Development and Design

The new website brings all three areas of the business together under one roof and encourages the user to get involved with all three.

There is now a full commerce system to purchase both Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery and Kircabi Coffee. As well as the new Ecommerce functionality, the site has a full events and news section to promote the events held at the Royal Barn venue. 

We also developed printed collateral to match the site and brands such as - beer loyalty cards, coffee cups and posters.

We were looking for a creative business that could bring our website right up to date. Our previous site no longer matched where we were as a business and we needed to leap forward!

We also wanted someone to help us bring the three elements of the business together, Kircabi Roasters, The Brewery and The Royal Barn. Single Malt have done that for us and we now have a site we can be proud of as well as sell some of our products online!
