Marathon Man Update!

McKee, Milestones, & Mini Kegs

Our pal Gary McKee has been hard at work since the 1st Feb, when he began his marathon challenge:  110 marathons in 110 days. He’s been joined by people throughout the community, each doing their bit in getting fit, raising awareness, and keeping McKee on his toes!

We’re delighted to have been able to contribute in our own way to Gary’s mission. Our Marathon Man 110 ale has so far raised £496! We want to thank everyone who has taken home a bottle, and helped contribute to Gary’s worthy charities, Macmillan Cancer Support Cumbria and West Cumbria Hospice.

As of this weekend, Marathon Man 110 will be available for a limited run in Mini Kegs, as well as bottles! Plus, if you’re ready to brave the elements come Monday 12th April, you can join us for a proper pint of Marathon Man, right here at The Ennerdale Tap. All proceeds from the beer will be donated to Gary’s cause!

Mini Kegs return for Spring!

Our mini kegs went down such a storm over Christmas, we’ve decided they need another shot in the limelight!

Closed pubs over the last few months has meant it’s been nigh on impossible to get your hands on a proper pint of ale. If you’ve ever wondered exactly why your bev goes down easier in the pub than at home, it’s probably in no small part thanks to the fact that it is cask treated (although, just getting out the house sure does help too!).

For this reason exactly, we launched our mini kegs at the end of 2020. Combining the taste of pub ale with the convenience (and necessity) of staying in, these mini kegs kinda give us the best of both worlds.

We’ll be focusing on our lighter range of beers as the weather continues to warm, and the days finally begin to get that little bit longer.

As of Friday 12th March, we will have available Blonde, Wild, Pale and our Session Harbour Master (4.0% abv). Please call, email or message us on Facebook to order yours!

Marathon Man 110!

Back in 2017, our good friend and local hero, Gary McKee completed the incredible feat of running 100 marathons in as many days, raising over £120,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support!

Nearly 4 years on, and the man is back at it, and stepping things up a gear. As of Monday, the 1st of February, Gary will be running a marathon every day for 110 days.

During his first challenge, we decided to brew up something special to celebrate this huge achievement, and so we are delighted to be able to revive our Marthon Man recipe in Gary’s honour once again!Brewing is complete, and Marathon Man is once again now available!

MM is a robust IPA that pops with notes of spicy orange and grapefruit. A beer that is designed to go the distance, it is full bodied, balanced, and a hardy 5.5%.

This time around, Gary is running on behalf of Macmillan again, and West Cumbria Hospice. Charities, and the people who rely on them, have been hit so hard by the pandemic. With this in mind, we have decided that profits from the sales of Marathon Man 110 will go to Macmillan Cancer Support. In these difficult times, we’re all looking for a way to spread a bit positivity. You can support Gary and these wonderful causes, by donating where you can (www.virginmoneygiving.com/GaryMcKee1), and raising a pint of Marathon Man! Cheers to that!
