Marathon Man 365 Event

On Sunday April 10th Ennerdale Craft Brewery will launch a non-profit beer to support local legend Gary McKee in his latest challenge to run a mind boggling 365 marathons in 365 consecutive days!

Gary’s no stranger to marathon challenges, in fact in 2021 he made the national headlines as he ran an incredible 110 marathons in 110 days.

Gary was inspired to fundraise after his father was diagnosed with cancer in 1997. He died from an unrelated illness in 2003, and since then Gary has dedicated most of his time to fundraising for both McMillan Cancer Support and Hospice at Home West Cumbria.

We at Ennerdale Craft have been in awe of Gary’s efforts for several years now, and have lent our support for each of his marathon challenges by doing what we do best, Brewing fantastic beer, and dedicating the profits of that beer to Gary’s chosen charities, and this year is no exception.

The new incarnation of Marathon Man 365 will be available in both Cask and Bottles from Sunday April 10th, when we will launch the beer at around 10.00am to a fanfare as Gary enters the Brewery Yard on the day of his 100th Marathon.

Anyone is welcome to attend and show their support for Gary’s Herculean efforts on the day. We are located at Chapel Row, Rowrah, Frizington, Cumbria CA26 3XS.

Missing the Pub??

We’d like to remind everyone that we are still open! We will remain open and continue to provide our lovely beer to all who’d like it (subject to age restrictions) until the Government tells us we can’t.

So, if you’re planning a period of self-isolation, and can’t bear the thought of life without beer, or even if you’ve just got a thirst on which you can’t quench due to panic buying and pub closures, fear not, we are here to help!

Just call in at The Ennerdale Brewery at Rowrah, where we have beer by the caseload!

We have 500ml bottles of Blonde, Wild, Darkest, Pale, Red, Darker Tides, John Dalton Stout & our award-winning premium lager Seven Bridges in 440ml cans.

For those of you that prefer your beer on draught, we can also offer you Firkins (72 pints) or Pins (36 pints) and a hand pump to serve it from (see terms and conditions below*) so you can play pub landlord in your own home. (serving yourself of course, no parties!)

Sound good? Then what are you waiting for? Give us a ring on 01946 862977 (Option 1), or call into the brewery to collect direct at
