“Come over to the dark side” Windermere Brewing Dog’th Vader is a well-balanced stout beer with fruit, malty flavour and a dry bitter aftertaste finish. A dark, powerful may the force be with you!
The dream of having their own micro-brewery, started many years ago. 1986 to be exact. His Dad (Alan) and him, were sat at the pub 1 mile down the road from theirs (it used to be traditional to drink in another Landlords pub alot!) they were planning their iminment move back home to the Lake district from Cornwood in Devon. No matter what type of pub they ended up with it had to have or have space for a brewery … 11th May 1987 they moved into Millholme Country Hotel – a nine bedroomed guest house. (now called The Watermill).
Three years later they gained a full licence and on the 8th December 1990 the Watermill Inn was born. They always wanted to brew on-site but sewerage drainage had always been a problem. They campaigned for many years for mains drains for Ings village to North West Water who then became United Utilities. But they as usual, found a get out clause, they had to invest in a sixty thousand pound treatment tank to keep the pub running and of course prepare for brewing.
The final piece of the eventual jigsaw was an other extention to house the kit which he bought over the web from Atlanta Georgia USA, he packed it into a shipping container in Toccoa Georgia and then unloaded it in November 2005 outside the pub with a lot of help. Originally it was housed in a Hops Bar & Grill Brew Pub in Daytona Florida. The rest as they say is history …
