Our Horses

Our three magnificent shire horses are an important part of the family at Daniel Thwaites. Back in the day, they hefted our beer around Blackburn. Today, let’s face it, there are faster ways to deliver our ale. But our shire horses remain at the heart of our heritage, making star appearances at our hotels and inns up and down the country.


Our dedicated team of groomsmen work hard every day to take care of Gunner, Wainwright, Ribble and Drummer. Catch them near you, soon.
