Eden Brewery, based at Brougham Hall, near Penrith, have released a limited edition ‘Penrith Ale Festival’ bottled beer to coincide with the Penrith Food and Farming festival, which runs from 20- 27th July. The week long celebration of the town’s food and drink heritage incorporates ‘Penrith on a Plate’, a local beer festival and the Food Hall at Penrith show.
‘Penrith Ale Festival’ is a refreshing and hoppy light golden ale that is ideal for summer drinking and is distinctly different to Eden Brewery’s popular ‘Eden Gold’.
Brewer Jason Hill explains: ‘We wanted to celebrate the festival with a limited edition Penrith ale. There has been lots of interest from retailers and the public in the product, which reflects growing consumer interest in quality local ales.’

Local food champions Cranstons are heavily involved in the festival and will be handing out barbecue samples at their Ullswater Road Food Hall on Saturday 20th July and summer eating samples outside their King Street shop on the same day. There will be a tour of the Food Hall and a butchery demo on Tuesday 23rd July (those interested in attending should contact Mark Raine on 01768 868680 or via firstname.lastname@example.org), and cookery demos all day at Penrith Show Food Hall with Cumbrian chef John Crouch on Saturday 27th July.
‘Penrith Ale’ is currently available from Cranstons Food Hall on Ullswater Road while stocks last. There will be a tasting of the beer on Saturday 20th, also at the Food Hall.
