Festival adds local flavour
Article date: 09 Apr 2010

The Sir Richard Owen, in Lancaster, teamed up with its local Campaign for Real Ale branch to stage a two-week beer festival.

The event, staged in conjunction with Lunesdale CAMRA, offered customers the opportunity to choose from a selection of 20 milds, porters, stouts and winter ales – from local breweries.

Beers on offer included Brodie’s Prime (from Cumbria’s Hawkshead Brewery), Jubilee Stout (from Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery Company), Lancaster Black (from Lancaster Brewery) and Patrick’s Porter (from Morecambe-based Brysons Brewery).

The two-week celebration was kicked off with a well-attended meet-the-brewer night, where local brewery staff were on hand to talk with pub regulars about their beers.
Brysons Brewery’s head brewer, George Palmer, said: “The ales offered people big flavours and bold aromas — for many, a genuinely new drinking experience.”

Lunesdale CAMRA’s social secretary, Julian Holt, said: “Dark styles are a significant part of our beer heritage, yet often don’ t get their deserved attention.

“This event brought together campaigners, local cask ale producers, a popular local outlet and the public – for a seasonal feast of some of the tastiest beers around.” The pub’s manager, Jeffrey Winder, said: “The festival created a lot of interest and was a great opportunity for our customers to try some different local ales.”
