Cumbrian Ales American Invasion 500ml 5% ABV
Cumbrian Ales is a craft brewery lying on the shores of Esthwaite Water at the southern edge of Hawkshead village in the English Lake District. Established in 2003 their beers are all produced with care and pride using the wonderful Lake District Fell water. Their beer range is a mixture of modern and classic. It includes the stunning Loweswater Gold, a past Champion Golden Ale of Britain.
Reformulated and is now dry hopped with Simcoe. This all American Pale Ale is a beautifully balanced beer with strong hop flavour and gentle bitterness. It commemorates John Paul Jones who left Cumbria as an apprentice seaman in 1760. He later founded the American Navy, returning to Whitehaven in 1778 in an unsuccessful raid on the town.
The history of the brewery dates back to 2003 when the Loweswater Brewery was set up using a small 3 barrel kit. It was sited in an outbuilding at the Kirkstile Inn and initially just supplied the pub in Loweswater. Demand grew dramatically from other pubs and for festivals.
In 2009, following negotiations, the Loweswater Brewery, acquired Cumbrian Legendary Ales. This 10 barrel brewery had been established on the shores of Esthwaite Water near Hawskshead in 2006 and all brewing was transferred to Hawkshead.
Since then the brewery has experienced a steady expansion and built up a committed team. During this period Loweswater Gold became Champion Golden Ale of Britain and the capacity of the brewery has been increased so that we now produce around 80 brewers barrels a week. A large number of outlets in Cumbria and beyond are supplied.
