Dry Stone Stout, our latest beer, celebrates one of the defining features of the Lake District landscape - dry stone walls.
We have been actively involved in promoting traditional walling skills. In May 2011 we sponsored the building of a brand new dry stone wall along the River Kent opposite the brewery. It was built by 50 wallers as part of a competition organised by the Dry Stone Walling Association, which works with bodies like the National Trust and Friends of the Lake District to preserve and revive dry stone walling. Also the husband of our Sales Manager is an accomplished dry stone waller.
“Lakeland dry stone walls are solid, traditional, dependable and rely totally on the skill of the craftsman,” said Sales Manager, Anne Jones. “This new Stout is a traditional dry stout, an enduring and dependable beer style, and it’s as dark as Lakeland slate. We think the two things go together rather well” she said.
Dry Stone Stout (4.5% abv) is available at the brewery tap, The Beer Hall in Staveley and at various other outlets in the North West including Ulverston, Carlisle, Wigan, Manchester, Bury and Lytham St Annes.
