    Monday 12-7pm
    Tuesday 12-7pm
    Wednesday 12-7pm
    Thursday 12-7pm
    Friday 12-11pm
    Saturday 12-11pm
    Sunday 12-8pm

    Food service hours will remain the same; Mon-Thur 12-3, Fri-Sat 12-8:30, Sun 12-6.

  • Ferment magazine name The Beer Hall one of Britain’s best brewery tap rooms.

    The article, by Neil Walker, a beer expert and self-confessed foodie, says “if you want to taste the good stuff, get down the taps”, “not only do the beers tend to be cheaper than they would be elsewhere – thanks to the removal of that pesky supply chain – but they are also ridiculously fresh”.

    Neil recommends drinking “Windermere Pale – at just 3.5%, ‘Windy Pale’ bursts with citrus fruit flavour which can be drunk all day.” The four other tap rooms mentioned are located in city centres and Neil quite rightly points out “The Beer Hall has the advantage of being surrounded by rolling countryside, meaning you can earn your pint after a few hours walking or cycling nearby”.

    You can view Ferment magazine online, you'll find the article 'Britains Best Brewery Tap Rooms' in issue 13.

    Raspberry Sour

    Our latest barrel ageing project also involves fruit! Not damsons this time but raspberries.

    A very small quantity of Raspberry Sour is being aged in an ex Red Burgundy cask, all the beer is destined for keg. Look out for this limited release at the up-coming busy festival season in September/October at events such as Indy Man Beer Con and London Beer Carnival.

  • Thanks to everyone who came!

    7½ pints of beer a minute (or a pint every 8 seconds) were sold during the four days of our summer beer festival last weekend.

    During forty-one hours of opening, from noon on Thursday to 8pm on Sunday, 257 casks and kegs, of 91 different beers from 17 breweries were sold.

    The food offering this year was expanded to include street food stalls ChilliKoko and Pappy’s Texas BBQ and there was a more relaxed approach to live music, all part of our plans to develop and evolve the event.

    We look forward to welcoming you back to our next festival in the Spring of 2016.

    Staveley Wallathon

    Dry Stone Stout kept more than 50 thirsty wallers going at the Staveley Wallathon 11-12th July.

    As well as the appropriately named beer we supplied bacon butties to volunteer wallers who’d come to rebuild over 180 metres of wall that runs alongside the river Kent, opposite the brewery.

    The event, organised by the Dry Stone Walling Association (DSWA), attracted wallers from Cumbria and beyond “the beer made it much easier, for some reason, to recruit volunteers” commented Chris Bratt, Secretary for the DSWA Cumbria.

    Many Staveley residents and visitors came to watch this traditional Lakeland craft and their donations meant more than £1000 was raised for the event’s chosen charity – the North West Air Ambulance.
