Brack’N’Brew, the Cumbrian micro-brewery based at the Brackenrigg Inn at Ullswater has recently launched a range of 500ml bottles to complement their existing real ales brewed on site. The wholesale beers are being stocked across the UK and the brewery has seen a rise in sales as a result.
Brack’N’Brew was started in March 2015 when an old horse stable at the back of the Brackenrigg Inn Watermillock, was converted into the brew house. After a few months of trials and testing the recipes, their first ale, ‘Boathouse Blonde’ was brewed and served in the bar at the Brackenrigg Inn.
The Brewery currently has five of their regular ales available at the Brackenrigg, Inn, including Alfred’s Golden Ale, The Rambling Bookkeeper Bitter, The Steamer Stout and Aira Force IPA.
The new 500ml bottle range, has been well received locally and is stocked in a variety of bars, restaurants and shops across the county including Chestnut House in Pooley Bridge, The Sunn Inn Newton Reigny, The Kings Arms in Stainton, Glenridding Mini Market, The Royal at Dockray, Beer Shop Ambleside, House of Malt in Carlisle and Embers Bar in Carlisle.
Ben Clementson, the Master Brewer behind Brack’N’Brew’s Ales, has been with the brewery from day one. He said: “We always had a plan to sell our beers in other establishments across Cumbria right from the start. The range of new bottles have been very well received and we have noticed an increase in sales as a result. We are very much looking forward to working with more stockists across the country.”
North West Food & Drink Means Business understands that as well as supplying their 500ml bottle range of beers to retailers and bars, Brack’N’Brew are looking to supply their cask ales to an exclusive number of pubs in Cumbria.
