Ennerdale Brewery Barrel Run 2016

The Ennerdale Brewery are hosting their 6th annual Barrel Run on Saturday 17th September 2016.

During the fun run 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. There is then a fun day held back at the Brewery with a 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 our family has close ties to. 

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. 

We are asking for donations in the form of raffle prizes… If you would like to donate, please contact Emily on 07725839952 to collect the prize. Alternatively, pop something in the post to The Brewery, Chapel Row, Rowrah, Cumbria, CA26 3XS.

Thank you!

New Stout Now Out

Our new ale ‘Girt Dog’ is a traditional stout which takes its name from the 200 year old legend of the vampire dog which romed the fells of Ennerdale…

This is a rich and creamy stout with coffee and dark chocolate elements and balanced with challenger, fuggles and goldings hops.

Call us now to order your Cask!

‘Ging Real Ale Trial’ take a Trip on the Wild Side…

We always enjoy the reviews on YouTube from Stuart and Andrew’s Ging Real Ale Trail. Of course, we love it even more if they are reviewing our ale from Ennerdale Brewery! Take a look here to see the thumbs up they give to our Ennerdale Wild. 

It’s fantastic to have such support from Stuart and Andrew – they know their onions (well they know they’re beer!) and it was great to see them picking up on more and more hoppy aromas and subtle flavours as they supped on the Wild.

Well guys, English Pride will be available again for the Six Nations tournaments and for the first time, we are doing a bottled version too! We hope you’ll enjoy this as well and can’t wait to see feedback on YouTube. We hope we’ll be able to welcome you up here to the brewery later this year if you fancy a visit to Wild Ennerdale… Or perhaps you’d like to make up a team in our annual charity barrel run?

Ennerdale Brewery Charity Barrel Run

Our annual barrel run takes place in September

We are very grateful for all the coverage and support that we get from real ale fans. Do keep in touch with us on Facebook and Twitter– we love to hear what you think and always take note of suggestions.

Catch up soon x 

 

 

 

Our beers are on their holidays

Fans of Ennerdale Bottled beers have been sharing photos of our ales on their holidays…

Ennerdale Blonde - Cumbrian real ale refreshing sunny DevonRecently spotted in Devon defending the coast, before doing its final duty being enjoyed at a bbq!

As the real ale is refreshing more distant corners of the country (it’s been photographed in Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Devon, and of course closer to home in Lancashire and around the Lake District) we are now building an online shop. This is a really exciting development for the brewery and we hope to have this up and running by the end of September.

Three Hot Blondes from Ennerdale - real ale doesn't get much better!

Ging Real Ale Trail review Ennerdale Brewery Bottled BeerThere are lots of plans on the go at Ennerdale Brewery with an open day planned to coincide with the annual barrel run, and we’ll let everyone know what’s going on in the next few days!

This is being run in memory of Phil Callery, who was our head brewer who was a big part of our early success.

Here at Ennerdale Brewery we love the fact that people take the time to share and send us their photos from around the country. As a small microbrewery we don’t expect our reach to go much further than Cumbria- but the reach is growing! This comes from those who holiday in the Lake District and fall in love with our cask and bottled ale (and of course locals who take a case of beer with them to enjoy on a sunny evening around the UK!)

This is also a moment to say a big thank you to the increasing number of outlets who are stocking our ale and to those who spread the word through reviews. Your support is very much appreciated!
