American Red (abv 4.2%)
A robust red ale with a trio of American hops providing tropical fruit notes in the aroma and a notable hop flavour, balanced by a moderate malt flavour and a lasting, bitter finish.
Brewed specially for JD Wetherspoon's spring beer festival 2013.
Previously trialled as 'Hoppy Red' and 'Hybred' at both 4.2% and 4.8% abv.
USPA - United States Pale Ale (abv 6.0%)
USPA is NZPA's American cousin - a highly hopped, modern pale ale made using all-American hops: Cascade, Simcoe and Colombus.
Hugely fruity on the nose with added aroma from dry-hopping, more juicy tropical fruit on the palate; mango, peach & pineapple balanced with a citrus bitterness.
Jingle Fells (abv 4.5%)
Our Christmas Ale.
Deep dark red, malty and bitter. Liquid Christmas pud from the Lakeland Fells.

Damson & Vanilla Stout (abv 4.5%)
A celebratory stout brewed to mark the annual Damson Day celebration in the Lyth Valley, using damsons harvested in the valley.
Intensely dark with aromas of fresh damsons. The sweet vanilla balances the bitterness of the fruit which combines with the smooth, roast malts. "Like Christmas pudding on steroids".
Triple XBP (abv 8.5%)
Extra strength Brodie's Prime. More intense flavour but still velvety smooth.
*CAMRA (Silver) Champion Barley Wine/Strong Old Ale of Cumbria 2012*
Brodie's Prime Reserve (abv 8.5%)
Brodie's Prime Reserve is Brodie's Prime, brewed to extra strength and matured for at least 6 months in oak Bladnoch whisky barrels. This has infused the beer with whisky flavours and deepened the rich complex flavours of Brodie's Prime.
Although primarily brewed for limited edition bottlings a small amount goes into 9 gallon casks and is often featured at the brewery's beer festivals where it is served straight from the oak barrel it has matured in.
