This Friday: The Cumbrian Traders Day

This Friday we are taking part in the Cumbrian Traders Day which will be held between 10am and 5pm in St Nicholas’ Church Gardens, Whitehaven.

The fair is organised by Gerard Richardson of Richardson’s Wines and aims to draw positive attention to local businesses throughout Cumbria, particularly the Western part of the region.

The idea [of the fair] is part of a drive to promote the [Whitehaven] town centre and I guess its an offshoot of the successful local stall visits of the festivals.

We will be joined by 24 other stalls on the day, including ones from Grasmere Gingerbread, Mawbray cheese, Blessings Bakery, Hallsford Meats, Y-Tea, Zora Lou Organics plus many more.

Trevor, our chef, will be managing our stall and will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have. Our bottled ales as well as our beautifully hand wrapped real ale gift packs will also be available to buy (don’t forget its Fathers Day on Sunday!)

Hope to see you there!

Some good news for the weekend: Blonde is back in bottles!

Due to a huge increase in sales (probably due to the ridiculous amount of back to back bank holidays we’ve all been faced with over the past couple of months) we completely sold out of our much loved, best selling beer- Ennerdale Blonde.

We managed to get some brews in and casks were soon back in stock, however, bottles are a little more complicated due to the time it takes for them to be sent away to be put into bottles and labeled.

BUT WE HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS and just in time for the weekend. Today, Barrie was back and forward from Bottled in Cumbria (the company that put our lovely little ales into bottles) collecting a very hefty supply of Ennerdale Blonde Bottles.

Here’s hoping that’s enough to keep us going for the foreseeable future….. But that been said, we know how much you beer drinkers love our ales and how quickly you can get through them. So cheers to the weekend!

Our new FV means more beer can be brewed

Some people get excited about love letters or ASOS parcels, but we had an even more exciting delivery come through our door last week… A brand new fermenting vessel for our brewery.

Our ales are put into the fermentation vessel after they have been brewed and this is where the magic happens: The yeast ferments the malt sugars into alcohol!

Fermentation can sometimes take a long time, so if all of our vessels are full then no more beer can be brewed until fermentation is complete. We’re hoping that this new fancy piece of equipment is going to be the solution to that problem.

The huge parcel arrived on Thursday morning from Eden Brewery in Penrith and it is already filled with our beer!

May Customer of the Month: The Wasdale Head Inn, Wasdale

Situated at the head of remote Wasdale and surrounded by mountains, The Wasdale Head Inn is the perfect base for walkers and climbers. If you’re seeking the superlative, look no further, Wasdale is home to England’s highest mountain, deepest lake and the smallest church.

The Wasdale Head Inn has been used by travelers for over two hundred years and its authentic, warm, friendly bar and restaurant still serves great food (and ales!) to hungry tourists.

The Wasdale Head Inn boasts stunning, comfortable rooms, but if you prefer the great outdoors they also have their own campsite- complete with hot showers and the option of breakfast butties!

With the summer approaching, The Wasdale Head Inn are stocking more of our ales each week. So what are you waiting for? Get yourself out into the fresh air and the sunshine before treating yourself to a nice, cold Ennerdale Ale in the comfort of their bar.

Gillian, to thank you for your continued support, you will receive a FREE CASE OF ENNERDALE ALE with your next order. Cheers!
