Our Barrel Run Is Quickly Approaching!

We know, it is the event that you’ve all been waiting for (us too)! If you don’t know what our barrel run is, then let us educate you…

Every year, we host a fun day in which teams of two people run a scenic 2.5 mile route from our very own Brewery to the Fox and Hounds pub in Ennerdale, carrying (yes you guessed it) an empty 9 gallon barrel! Fancy dress is also a must!

Run Forrest, run!

This year’s event will take place on Saturday 21st September and the subscription will begin at 10:30 am before the race kicks off at 12 pm. It is £10 entry per team and all money raised this year will go towards getting a defibrillator for Rowrah.

Defibrillators are crucial when it comes to saving lives. Cardiac arrests can happen to anyone of any age and fatality is a huge risk for the victims, if not treated soon enough. With every minute that passes without treatment, the chances of survival are decreased by 10%! Defibrillators are life-saving and are therefore vital to have in the local community. Involvement in this event will help us to make this possible, so please help to support us in raising money for Rowrah’s defibrillator!

Some important facts about how defibrillators benefit comminities.

On completion, each participant is given a free pint of Ennerdale Ale at the Fox and Hounds, before being transported back to the Ennerdale Brewery for sandwiches and chips, live music, entertainment, and more beer!

It is always an incredibly fun day for all of the family. We have a bouncy castle for children to enjoy, lots of brilliant raffle prizes to be won and we will be joined by the amazing Vortigern, a local Celtic Rock band! They have a great atmosphere and will happily play until their fingers get sore. They will begin performing at 5 pm, ready to give everyone an evening full of bangers!

Vortigern – they will rock your barrels!

If you can’t join the event but you would still like to help support our cause, then raffle tickets can be bought from the Brewery Tap from the start of September and any raffle prize donations would be hugely appreciated.

Get your tickets soon!

It is a fantastic opportunity to raise money for an excellent cause, as well as have a laugh with all of your family and friends! Get your troops together and form your teams, because this year will be one to remember. Call us on 01946 862977 or email us at [email protected] to enter.
