Our Honeycomb Beer is finally here, it’s beeeautiful!

Brewer Dave has been very busy brewing our latest special beer this week. Our favourite beer nerd has combined caramalt and crystal malts with goldings hops to give a smooth golden ale with a slight floral hint. He then added the magic ingredient- local, Cumbrian honey from the Whitehaven and District Beekeepers Association to give a delicious, gentle honey flavour.

As we all should know, Britain’s bees are in trouble (over 35 UK bee species are under threat of extinction) and a decline in bee diversity could have a serious impact on how our natural world functions. Bees pollinate lots of the food that makes our diets healthy (and tasty) so without them we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the apples in our lunchboxes or the tomatoes on our pizzas!

The Beekeepers Association, who have multiple hives dotted around the Cumbrian countryside, aim to:

  •    Improve beekeeping in the county.
  •    Educate and train Beekeepers.
  •    Improve public relations and public education.
  •    Control disease and disorders in honeybees.

We’re extremely proud to be brewing with delicious, local honey from an association that supports such a great cause. Casks of Honeycomb will be available next week and bottles will follow soon after. So what are you waiting for? Have a beer for the bees!

New Autumn ale arrives at Ennerdale

Next week we will be launching our new 2018 Autumn Ale and in keeping up with our traditional descriptive names for our craft ales this one will be called….. Red!

Ennerdale Red is a red ale (shock) made with Pale, Amber and Crystal malts along with roasted barley to give a smooth, malty-sweet taste. French Barbe-Rouge hops are used which give it a fruity, red berry hop flavour which is perfect for drinking on a breezy Autumn night.

This ale is 3.8% ABV and only in casks, so make sure you wrap up warm, get those waking shoes on and call in the Brewery Tap to sample a pint… or three… hic!
