Ennerdale Brewery Barrel Run 2016

The Ennerdale Brewery are hosting their 6th annual Barrel Run on Saturday 17th September 2016. This is a fun run in which participants run approximately 3 miles in fancy dress from the Brewery at Rowrah to the Fox & Hounds Public House in Ennerdale Bridge carrying an empty 9 gallon stainless steel barrel. After the race has finished, participants are given a free pint of Ennerdale Ale along with sandwiches and chips and there is a fun day held back at the Brewery with bouncy castle, live music and a raffle. ALL proceeds go to charity, the Brewery do not take any payment from entrance fees or raffle prizes in which we provide. Last year we raised a staggering £800 which was donated to Jeans Research Trust, a charity that I myself have a close connection with. This year we are hoping to raise even more money and the selected charities are Parkinsons, Alzheimer’s Society and Cancer Research – all of which are very close to our hearts for the Brewery Team. We would like to ask whether you would be kind enough to donate a gift for our raffle prize please, anything would help. We have a long way to go to collect prizes and would very much appreciate a donation of any size from your kind selves. We at the Brewery understand that companies get asked for donations quite a lot so appreciate if you cannot donate anything this year, but please consider us for next year. If you would like to donate, please can you contact Emily on 07725 839952 to collect the prize or alternatively pop something in the post to us at the Brewery, Chapel Row, Rowrah, Cumbria, CA26 3XS. barrel run 2016

New Head Brewer Heading to Ennerdale

We are very excited to announce that we have a new head brewer heading to our brewery. Marc Myers (formally head brewer at Lancaster Brewery) has decided to take up a new position with the Ennerdale brewery as Brewery Manager and start a very exciting chapter in his life by moving to Cumbria. Mark is a multi award-winning craft brewer and brewing consultant who is highly motivated and passionate about Real ale. He will bring a raft of new ideas to the brewery with his experience in producing a wide range of excellent beers, from traditional real ales to new and modern craft beers. Mark has a young family consisting of his partner Klaire, who is currently pregnant with their second child and a 2-year-old boy called Dexter. When asked about his new challenge Marc commented: 'Together we have decided to make the move to the west Cumbria area so I can take on the role as brewery manager at Ennerdale brewery in which working alongside directors Barrie Roberts and Paul Zanacchi plan to take Ennerdale Brewery one step closer to being one of the finest brewery's in Cumbria area.' Mark will start his new position in March and we're certain he will be a huge success with our drinkers, fans, and locals.
