Cain's Liverpool's Brewery

Robert Cain arrived in Liverpool in 1826 from County Cork where he was born. He was 18 years of age and a merchant seaman and had managed to save enough money to buy a public house (pub) with a brewhouse attached to the property in Limekiln Lane. It was not long before he gained a reputation for producing quality beer from his brewery/pub.

During this period Liverpool was a busy seaport and one of the major trading ports in England. It also boasted many fine alehouses ( some are still around today) and breweries. Cain's beer brewing went from success to success and Robert gaining himself a reputation for the quality of his traditional beers. Such was his success that he outgrew his premises and had to relocate to the site of a former brewhouse in Stanhope Street where Cain's beers are still produced today. Building started in 1883 and was finally finished in 1902.

Cain's beer adopted the wining formula of ensuring that nothing should become between customers and to this end Robert Cain commenced on a major pub outlet building project, opening 200 public houses designed for the comfort of his customers. many of the were ornately designed in the victorian style, with sumptuous furnishings and impressive plaster work.

During the years the original Brewery building passed from one major Brewer to another, Higsons, Boddingtons and Whitbread to name just a few. Then finally in 1990 the Brewery was reopened by G.B. Brewers Ltd and in 1991 was renamed Robert Cain & Co Ltd and is still dedicated to following the tradition of Robert Cain, brewing good quality beers.

This success is in no small part to the vision of Sudarghara and Ajmail Dusanj who honed there skills in management and innovation though their ownership of the drinks group Gardner Shaw.

Major investment in the Brewer by the brothers have ensured the establishment of the beers now produced, which range from traditional ales to a new beers , Fine Raisin, have ensured that Cain's is now recognized not only across Merseyside but also internationally.

So why not take a Brewery tour and sample these unique beers yourself.
