Press Release Real Ale

Ennerdale Brewery goes wild with new real ale!

Cumbrian microbrewery launches a real ale in support of The Wild Ennerdale Partnership

Wild Ennerdale real ale from Ennerdale microbrewery Cumbria“Wild Ennerdale” has recently hit the pubs, and we’re donating 5p per pint from the first 100 casks to support the Wild Ennerdale Partnership’s excellent environmental work in the Ennerdale valley. We’re delighted that the first reactions from those supping a pint are fabulous! We’re very excited to add another ale to our core range- and of course we continue to brew seasonal ales and some for special occasions.

Brewed with water drawn from our own spring, Wild Ennerdale is a golden amber colour (derived from the finest quality English grown malting barley and hops). 4.2ABV, with a wonderful hop aroma and a well rounded bitterness.

Barrie Roberts, the brewery director, said “It is a fantastic milestone for us to brew a real ale in association with Wild Ennerdale in time for their 10th anniversary. To have the opportunity to work with them more closely, and donate towards improving the spectacular landscape in Ennerdale is important to us”.

Here at the brewery, we’re already heavily involved in the Ennerdale Hub which runs the Fox and Hounds and has plans to open a village shop and visitor’s centre.

It’s a big step forward to increase our environmental support. We hope to remain involved with partnership for many years to come, whether through donations or getting our wellies on and helping out in the work they do around us.

The Wild Ennerdale Partnership is one of the UK’s longest running wild land projects, allowing ecosystems throughout the valley to evolve with greater freedom. Its experience in managing land through minimal human intervention is already widely acclaimed and shared by others.

Project Officer for Wild Ennerdale, Rachel Oakley, said “It’s great to see the Wild Ennerdale brand supporting a local business, and fantastic that Ennerdale Brewery is contributing to work in the valley through sales of the beer”. 

We’re excited about working with Wild Ennerdale and are busy making sure there is plenty of “Wild” beer around Cumbria for everyone to enjoy. We’ll also be at the Cockermouth Food Market on Saturday 4th May, so do come along and sample our real ale & have a chat!
