Following the success of our Barrel Run, we are on a mission to raise the rest of the money for Rowrah’s FIRST public use defibrillator!

The event will take place on Saturday 16th November from 6pm. Tickets are £5 (!!) and include the following:

  • Brewery Talk from Barrie himself about our history and our range of wonderful ales (bringing our Brewery Tours to you)!
  • 3 samples of our ales to taste whilst Barrie teaches you all about them
  • Music and entertainment from Keith Robinson (our wonderful open mic star!), David Parke and Tracey Mooney
  • Free raffle entry with your ticket, for a chance to win some great prizes!

We will also have stand-up bingo, more raffle fun, a ‘roll a coin into the whiskey bottle’ competition and some other great games… You best bring your competitive side!

Meals will be available to buy from our normal menu until 9pm (line those stomachs!), as well as more drinks and BEER from our bar until 11pm!!

If that doesn’t sound good enough, here is why this fundraising event is so important to your local community…

Defibrillators are crucial when it comes to saving lives. Cardiac arrests can happen to anyone of any age and fatality is a huge risk for the victims, if not treated soon enough. In fact, for every minute that passes without treatment, chances of survival can decrease by 10%.

We have 100 tickets for sale from the Ennerdale Brewery Tap which will be sold in advance on a first come first served basis, so make sure to pop in to secure your place! It will be a fantastic night raising money for a vital cause and by joining us, you could help to save a life. We can’t wait to see you all there!

September Customer of the Month: The Newfield Inn

The Newfield Inn is a super friendly and traditional sixteenth-century country pub, based in Seathwaite in the heart of the Duddon Valley.

The pub serves a selection of top dishes, all made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. These can be enjoyed next to the cosy log burner inside, or in their large beer garden (providing the weather is on your side)! The Newfield Inn is also very close to some local natural beauties such as Seathwaite Tarn – See below if you don’t believe us…

Seathwaite Tarn

Most importantly, there is a great selection of local beers, including a range of Ennerdale ales… what is not to love?! The pub also hosts some great events such as quiz nights and live music, so make sure you get yourselves through and grab one of our ales while you’re there!

Cameron and Linda, to say thank you for your continuous support, you will receive a free case of Ennerdale Ale with your next order!

Barrel Run 2019

Our 9th Annual Barrel Run was another fun event here at Ennerdale Brewery! We had some great fancy dress… even Barrie decided to get his gear on!

The run from our brewery to the Fox and Hounds went well – no barrels were lost and nobody fell over, what a success! Everyone enjoyed a refreshing pint of Ennerdale Blonde down at the Fox and Hounds before being transported back here (nobody felt like walking back…I wonder why…)

Foods, drinks, bouncy castles and live band Vortigern were amazing. Everyone had a great day and we hope to have another fun filled day next year!

Our raffle was drawn on Sunday at our open mic and some fabulous prizes were won!! We had some extremely generous donations this year and thanks to local businesses, we managed to raise some money towards our local defibrillator!

Thank you to everybody for their support – It has been fantastic and we can’t wait to see you all at the next event.
