We tried a new beer on Friday 26th, from Barngates Brewery, called Tenacious Ted – and we will be ordering more for the coming Bank Holiday weekend, as it sold out in 4 hours! It is a 3.8% copper coloured bitter, a nice mix of malt and hops leading to a thoroughly thirst quenching pint. Tenacious Ted is named after a very lively Jack Russell from the Langdale Valley.
Barngates Brewery first started brewing their own beer in 1997 in the cellar of the Drunken Duck Inn, Barngates, near Ambleside. They use their own water supply, fresh from the fells with no additives to assist in the brewing process.
