Commenced Brewing in 1807. Moved to a new brewhouse in Blackburn in 1996. In 2011 the “Crafty Dan” microbrewery was installed on the site. Subsequently the main brewery was closed with a view to selling the site and building a new brewery elsewhere. In 2015 Marstons purchased the Thwaites trading division. This included the Wainwright & Lancaster Bomber brands and the sales / distribution interests outside Thwaites own pub estate. It did not include the pubs, hotels, supply of the Thwaites estate or the remaining brands / brewing interests. In 2018 Brewing was moved out of Blackburn to a new build brewery in Mellor Brook.
