If heading into the summer holidays with all the extra visitors wasn’t enough, Wainwright’s Inn owned and run by and located on the Langdale Estate have had an even busier and exciting last 4 weeks.
Firstly and foremostly, new beers. The inn has been a leading real ale pub for some time now showcasing beers from a couple of miles away, throughout the North West and further afield. Championing small scale, craft breweries have been the name of the game for Wainwright’s. But news on a slightly different scale has dominated the social media accounts of the inn, the launch in mid July of Wainwright’s ale on the pumps of the Wainwright’s Inn.
So many people will have heard of Wainwright’s Ale being available nationwide and bottles in so many outlets. It continues to be an extremely popular ale, light but not too hoppy and something that can quench thirst but is always welcome in the winter too, a real all year round ale. Although Thwaites the brewers are a large concern, being a Lancashire based company firmly keeps the authenticity of their beers.
Scottish breweries are really taking off and new to Wainwrights this month have been Fyne Brewery ales brewed in Argyll. Look out for Jarl, Avalanche, Maverick and Hurricane Jack on the pumps.
With so much beer to try, it is always wise to keep food in mind and the newly operational smoker at Wainwright’s is proving a real hit. They’ve been smoking everything from meat to fish and cheese in the smoker (AKA an old hot water cylinder – keeping with the eco ethics of the Langdale Estate!). Just one of the latest special has been smoked BBQ ribs with classic sides of chips and coleslaw. Just imagine, Pint+Ribs=Post Walk Perfection. Guests of the Langdale Lake District Hotel & Spa can also choose to dine at Wainwright’s being just a stones throw away.
