“Experience a day out like no other at The Ennerdale Brewery- An attraction that will live long in the memory”

We recently collaborated with myhotelbreak.com as they investigated why their guests should visit us here at The Ennerdale Brewery. Find out what they discovered in this guest blog post that they kindly wrote for us:

“Having great attractions to visit really adds to a hotel break. For those looking at their next hotel break in the beautiful area of Cumbria we highly recommend taking time out to visit The Ennerdale Brewery. Here at myhotelbreak.com, we’re really keen on exploring new attractions and we found the perfect, idyllic spot in The Ennerdale Brewery.

Let’s find out more:
We did our homework before we arrived. We knew there was a lot on offer at the brewery, but we only had a few hours to spare so we had to plan specifically what we wanted to do. We really wanted to do a brewery tour; this was one of the main motivations in visiting as we hadn’t experienced a brewery tour before. We also heard great things about The Bistro Tap which serves some of the best, homemade food in the area.

The Brewery Tours:
Due to the time constraints on our visit, we knew we had to be clever with what we decided to do. There are three types of brewery tours to choose from and we chose the ‘tour only’ which lasted one hour. This tour fitted perfectly into our itinerary; it was really insightful and we gained a deep understanding of the whole brewing process from start to finish. We were told that at the start of the brewing process The Ennerdale Brewery only use four natural ingredients; water, malt, hops and yeast. One of the added highlights to the tour is that everyone gets four 1/2 pints of Ennerdale Ale- which went down very well indeed!

At £15.00 per person, the tour was really good value for money. However, we did have to book the tour in advance so we suggest the same to anyone who is thinking of signing up. Also be aware that a £10 deposit is required at the time of booking.

Other tours available are:
-Package 2: Tour + Pie and peas (vegi options available). £25.00pp. Duration 2 hours.

-Package 3: Tour + Pie and Peas + Unlimited Ale. £35.00pp. Duration 4 hours*
*Minimum number of 15 people for this package.

The Brewery Tap:
Once the tour had finished, I’m not going to lie, food was the main thing on my partners mind, so we headed next door to the renowned Brewery Tap. The Bistro has a real rustic, woodland feel to it as well as being very welcoming. The menu is very varied with lots of choices available. We wanted something really great so I chose the Lasagne and my partner had the Homemade Pizza. We had heard great things about the food here and it did not disappoint. Both meals were just perfect; piping hot and made with care. It arrived in very good time too. You can check here to see the rest of the menu.

There is a wide variety of drinks here at The Brewery Tap too, from their own craft ales to wines and spirits. We of course had a couple of ales crafted by the superb brewery team. We also discovered that The Brewery Tap run various nights throughout the year, such as the Open Mic Nights.

This was a perfect day out! We highly recommend a visit to enjoy all that is on offer at The Ennerdale Brewery, in the beautiful surroundings of the West Cumbrian Lake District”.

April Customer of the Month: Seth’s Bar, Cockermouth

Situated in the busy Market Place of Cockermouth, Seth’s Bar is a quirky real ale tavern that also offers a wonderful, wide selection of gins, wines and cocktails.

With its chilled out garden terrace Seth’s Bar is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a pint or a cocktail. The bar boasts a great team of staff who are very helpful and friendly and its atmosphere in the evening is second to none.

Seth’s plays host to a number of gigs (Mojo Rising will be performing on May 10th) and an Open Mic Night where all participants receive a free drink of their choice. And if all of that is not enough to make you want to pay a visit… they also serve very delicious pizzas!!

Seth’s has a great range of drinks, including a selection of our ales!

Since the start of this year Owner Andy has ordered our cask ales almost every week. He has experimented with our different specials such as Honeycomb, Pale Ale and English Pride IPA and sometimes even takes up to four casks at a time- we’re not actually sure where they find the cellar space!

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

Trashtag #success

Last Sunday we teamed up with Midas Watches, Club 135 and Y-Tea of The Lake District in an attempt to tackle some of the rubbish around Whitehaven.

We tactically hid an empty Ennerdale Ale bottle on the beach with a Brewery Tour Voucher for 4 people hidden inside of it, in an attempt to give people incentive to get involved in the litter picking. And it worked! It was a great turn out with around 50 people (and a handful of dogs) coming down to join in with the clean up.

It’s not littering… It’s methodically placed!

The team of volunteers met at Club 135, where they were kitted out with litter picking utensils, then headed out to tackle trash in the town and on the beaches of Whitehaven. Matthew Rush was the lucky winner who found the bottle and our Brewery Tour giveaway. Congratulations Matthew, give us a call to book your prize!

Rory Wood, founder of Midas Watches and organiser of the Trashtag event told us “It’s had a great reach in the local community so far… these will definitely be monthly events”.

So if you missed out on Trashtag this time don’t worry, you can always come and do your bit at the next one. We’re lucky to live in a beautiful part of the world, lets not let litter ruin it for us!
