Their entry on Facebook tells us most that we need to know:

“We are a five barrel brewery based at Brougham Hall, Penrith, Cumbria. 5 Barrels is 20 casks, which is 180 gallons, which is 1440 pints. Our equipment was fabricated and installed by Moody Systems of Retford, and it is an amazing bit of engineering AND an excellent brewery. Also thanks are due to Johnson Brewing Designs. Our beers are produced by, in partnership with Peter Laws who was the Head Brewer at Jennings”

So, brewing is back at the Old Brewery, Brougham Hall (the 2nd of 3 homes for Tirril) with a new brewery set up by enthusiastic home brewers, Jason Hill and Stephen Mitchell. Over 12 months in the planning, once the venture got underway Jason spent some time at a couple of local breweries gaining knowledge and insight, A chance call to Brougham Hall found the Old Brewery available at the beginning of December 2011, However, it was soon realised that a 1 barrel plant was too small. and a visit to Ulverston Brewery with Vincent Johnson from Johnson Brewing convinced Jason to take new equipment.

The new equipment has all been supplied by Moodys and Johnson Brewing.

After working with brewers locally, and at York and Titanic breweries, Jason is now brewing on the new 5 barrel plant.

Beers:

Eden Gold 4.2%using Maris Otter Malt to give a light golden colour, with distinctive hop character and a pleasant citrus aroma.

Eden Best at 3.8%a classic English ale using Fuggles & Golding hops.

First Emperor, a very new brew, it is a ‘puckka’ IPA (abv 4.6%) named after Edward VII, the first British Emperor of India. Tasting notes next time.

Congratulations are due from Westmorland CAMRA and we trust that both ventures will have very bright futures.

Brewing is back at the Old Brewery, Brougham Hall (the 2nd of 3 homes for Tirril) with a new brewery set up by enthusiastic home brewers, Jason Hill and Stephen Mitchell. Over 12 months inthe planning, Once the venture got underway circaJason spent some time at a couple of local breweries gaining knowledge and insight, initially looking at a 1 barrel plant! These visits however indicated that they needed mains sewage which neither had available. A chance call to Brougham Hall found the Old Brewery available at the beginning of December 2011, however a 1 barrel plant was too small. At that time they also secured a deal with a local (ish) pub which meantr larger plant. Initially looking a second hand equipment but a visit to Ulverston Brewery with Vincent Johnson from Johnson Brewing convinced Jason to take new equipment. The equipment has all been supplied by Moodys and Johnson Brewing.

After working with brewers locally, and at York and Titanic breweries, Jason is now brewing on the new plant.

Eden Gold is on sale at The Britannia, Elterwater (as Britannia Gold).

Eden Gold will be available at Easter in the Greyhound at Shap and the Kings Arms at Stainton, other pubs to follow after Easter. Its fair to say the Greyhound and Britannia sold the first brew of Gold in a weekend - somebody liked the beer! Eden Best will follow soon.

 

Beers:

Eden Gold, OG 1042, 4.2% abv, brewed in the traditional way using the finest Maris Otter Malt providing a light golden colour, with a distinctive hop character and a very pleasant citrus aroma.

Eden Best, 3.8%, a classic English Ale using Fuggles and Goldings hops.
