  1. Hi,

    I’m a member of Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team and was wondering if it was possible to put on a display and sell some of our merchandise at your Barrel run on 23 September 2017. We could either be inside or we have our own Gazebo for outside display. We would donate something for your raffle.

    • Hi Derek

      Of course, this would be great thank you, initially a gazebo outside would be great as our café can get quit busy when the barrel run is taking place , however if the weather is poor you will be moved inside. If you could arrive at the brewery for 10.30 am on Saturday 23rd September that would be great, a massive thank you for your donation and we will see you soon. Thanks Tyler Eccles.

  2. Looking foreward with trepidatation to the barrel run once again, last took part in 2015 with my mate Aarron. I sincerly hope all my 1 to 2 weeks training has paid off just to complete the run/course with my mate Aaron once again, gien the short notice that we would be running LoL Thought that with summer now gone we would dress up in Hawaiian gear with surf board and all this year. It truly is a great event and well organised and for avery good cause, so well done to all concerned and everyone involved in hte organisation and i am sure it will be a brilliant success and a well supported event. So from myself and running partner Aaron and the landlord and staff at the Captains House whom we are running on behalf of, well done and all the best on the day.

    • Hi Chris, sorry for the late reply we hope you enjoyed this year’s barrel run, we raised a massive £500 for blood wise which is such an amazing charity and we couldn’t of done it without you’re help, I would also like to take the time to thank you for donation it was such a fantastic day and thank you for coming to take part.
