We walked with Beth and Steve Pipe on the “Brewers Loop” as they write their new book

The Lake District scenery and our famous Cumbrian beers are the dream combination. Is it any wonder Beth Pipe and her husband Steve are writing a book about them?

The couple set off on the 23rd of June on their 18 day 138 mile hike, visiting as many breweries and microbreweries around Cumbria as possible- and carrying with them an empty cask!

Jodi and Emily helping the pair with their cask

Beth is the author of the best selling book “Gin, Cake and Rucksacks” which involved her sampling various gins and distillaries as they walked around the lakes.

This time, it’s beer! Which is where we came in. Our directors Emily and Jodi walked with the pair from Whitehaven to St Bees on Saturday as they talked about all things brewing and beer business.

After they finished walking the 7 miles from Whitehaven Harbour to St Bees (in the scorching sunshine) they came back to The Brewery Tap for a well deserved break and a beer.

The couple are raising money for the Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association (LDSAMRA). They chose the charity as they’re very often out in the hills and even though they don’t personally expect to need their help, they know how quickly and easily things can go wrong for people when walking and climbing.

We loved chatting with Beth and Steve and learning about their latest book and all the money that they’ve raised for the charity so far. We wish them all the luck in the world getting to the end of their adventure- not long to go!

We wish the best of luck to the pair for the last couple of days of their beautiful beery adventure!

June Customer of the Month: The Tavern, Whitehaven

What’s not to love about The Tavern?

Located on Tangier street in Whitehaven, this quirky, friendly and traditional pub in Whitehaven will make you feel like you’ve walked into your home.

A pub for pool players and nighttime drinkers: They have a great selection of spirits and shots and their choice of beers is brilliant. The Tavern almost always serve our Blonde on tap and will very often take three casks at a time.

There is lots of seating upstairs, the staff are very fun and friendly and the music is great. They even have an old school style juke box so you can choose your favourite music throughout the night.

Simon and family, to say thank you for being great customers you will receive your free case of Ennerdale bottles with your next order. Cheers!

We recently teamed up with Scopic Productions

Scopic Productions recently contacted us to ask if they could do some filming in our brewery… And of course, we said yes!

The Scopic team, Scott and Lyle, create short videos for company’s to be used as adverts, corporate videos or product demonstrations. They have worked with and created content for a range of clients and products, from flame effect lamps to promoting car events.

But the duo from Lancashire are now keen to focus on what they really love: Breweries and Distilleries in The Lake District!

They spent an afternoon filming in and around our brewery (we made Dave tidy up before they arrived) as well as in the Brewery Tap and down at Ennerdale Water. Unfortunately the sun wasn’t shining, but at least they captured a true representation of the West Cumbrian Lake District weather.

This is the video they made for us- We really love it and we hope you do too.

Cheers guys!
