Wolf Warrior is produced by Stringers Brewery at Ulverston for Independent Lakeland Breweries, part of Cockermouth-based Grapevine wine merchant and drinks wholesalers.

The 3.5 per cent pale ale is called Wolf Warrior because Ulverston derives from the Norse surname Ulfarr, which means - Wolf Warrior.

It was launched on a gloriously sunny day at the Fisherman's Arms at Baycliff near Ulverston, where guests quenched their thirst with a pint of Cumbria's latest beer in the pub's beer garden and even on the beach.

Among those who attended the launch of Wolf Warrior on Tuesday April 15 was Jon Kyme, who brewed it.

Wolf Warrior is the fifth real ale produced for Independent Lakeland Breweries but this is the first time it has teamed up with Stringers Brewery, which has won awards for the quality of its beer and for its environmental policies. These include include using 100 per cent renewable power.

Stringers is the third Cumbrian micro-brewery Independent Lakeland Breweries has teamed up with. The other beers and breweries are Gold Wing and Dark Night from Strands Brewery at Nether Wasdale, then Aurora and Entente Cordial from Geltsdale Brewery at Brampton - and now Wolf Warrior from Stringers Brewery at Ulverston.

Jon Kyme, brewer at Stringers Brewery, in Ulverston, said: "We were asked by Independent Lakeland Breweries to come up with something aromatic with some character but not too sharp - and we have delivered with Wolf Warrior. I like its bitterness. We haven't dumbed it down. Linking up with Independent Lakeland Breweries is a good idea. They have the resources we don't have. They get a beer they want and that they can sell and we brew it. It's a win-win."

Ben Paxon, from Independent Lakeland Breweries, said: "We are absolutely delighted with Wolf Warrior and its sharp taste, which is characteristic of Stringers Brewery. It lives up to its name by punching above its weight. We think it will be a big hit with our clients and their customers too in pubs, bars and restaurants throughout Cumbria. It is a very welcome addition to our Independent Lakeland Breweries family."
