Cumbria brewery unveils new creation
Last updated at 11:18, Wednesday, 11 September 2013
A SOUTH Lakeland brewery has unveiled its latest new product which is being sold by one of the UK’s largest supermarket chains.
Hawkshead Brewery launches new beer at the same time as it goes on sale in Sainsbury’s.
Preview bottles which were released ahead of the launch on Tuesday 17 September, have already won a 2 star Great Taste award from the Guild of Fine Food, have reached the national final of the Great British Beer Hunt and are now on sale in 300 Sainsbury’s stores.
The beer is the bottled version of the highly successful cask beer, Windermere Pale - a thoroughly modern beer first brewed in the summer of 2009 to fulfil public demand for a low ABV, highly flavoured, modern hoppy beer.
The bottled version of Windermere Pale, which at four per cent abv is slightly stronger than in cask, has been created in response to continuous demand for the draught beer to be available in bottle.
Windermere Pale is brewed with soft Lakeland water, Maris Otter malted barley & full flower hops – blending three traditional English hops & the modern American hop, Citra.

Have your say
Very good barry . Your so right . Killing ulverrston slowly .
Why not buy direct from the Brewery at Staveley, putting more money back into Hawkshead's coffers rather than Sainsbury's? I am of course assuming you know where Staveley is?
