Tirril Brewery

LAKELAND RANGE

All our beers are gluten-free and available in 4.5 gallon, 9 gallon and 18 galllon casks

As a brewery originating on the edge of the Lake District National Park we have always sold a large volume of our beers in the Lakes. As the brewery expanded and our sales area grew it was an obvious choice to name our beers after the lakes, valleys and villages that we delivered to.

Tirril Ullswater Blonde

ULLSWATER BLONDE (3.8%)

A blonde ale that is a session ale in character, lightly hopped and very drinkable.

Tirril Ullswater Blonde

This blonde ale, has had a more colourful past than it’s light appearance might suggest.Initially named after a Lakeland guidebook writer of some fame (due to an old family link) we were refused permission to mention the good gentleman’s name, by a larger brewery.

Undeterred, after a few jovial versions of the same name (ending in a threat of court action) we settled on “Nameless Ale” for a while. But being innominate was not a positive selling point. So it became the instantly popular “Ullswater Blonde” the first of our Lakeland themed beers and by far our best selling beer, even outselling Old Faithful these days!Perhaps our larger opposition did us a favour?

It is a session ale in character, lightly hopped, very pale and extremely drinkable.

Tirril Grasmere Gold

GRASMERE GOLD (3.9%)

A golden bitter in the style of the greatest of British drinking ales, flavoured with three British hops to give this subtle beer good character.

Another renamed beer, this golden bitter was originally called Brougham Ale and used Lord Brougham’s magnificent coat of arms as its pump clip image.Sadly outside of Penrith the name “Brougham” proved difficult for people to pronounce!

So after the success of Ullswater Blonde, Grasmere Gold arrived, in the style of the greatest of British drinking ales, light and easy drinking, like all our beers. Flavoured with three British hops which give this subtle beer good character.

Tirril Kirkstone Gold

KIRKSTONE GOLD (3.9%)

A pale golden beer, lighter than our Grasmere and also subtly hopped to make for plentiful session drinking.

E.V.P.A. (EDEN VALLEY PALE ALE) (4.0%)

Available in summer only

Tirril EVPA

This beer was absolutely designed as a summer session ale – or “barbeque beer”.

We have made our very palest of ales, by using 50% lager malt. Then to continue the thirst quenching summer style, Saarz, the world’s best lager hops were added to our usual British varieties to give a most refreshing summer drink.

So light is this beer, that we only brew it for the summer months.

Tirril Rydal Pale Ale

RYDAL PALE (4.1%)

Our original pale ale and arguably our best yet, light hoppy and very, very easy drinking.

RYDAL PALE (4.1%)

Tirril Rydal Pale Ale

Our latest pale ale and arguably our best yet.

Once more we have used some lager malts to make a paler ale and then livened up our British hops with a sprinkling of New World hops (Liberty and Cascade – as used in our IPA) to give a light hoppy and very easy drinking ale.

Tirril Borrowdale Bitter

BORROWDALE BITTER (4.2%)

A rosy amber ale, with good depth of malt character balanced with classic British hops for a good bitterness and hoppy finish.

BORROWDALE BITTER (4.2%)

Available in summer only

Tirril Borrowdale Bitter

A beer that is a bit darker and more brooding than most of our range, perhaps suited to the climate of Borrowdale?

It is a rosy amber ale, with good depth of malt character balanced with classic British hops for a good bitterness and hoppy finish. A classic British ale that is just a touch darker than your usual Best Bitter.

Tirril Windermere IPA

WINDERMERE I.P.A (4.3%)

Our classic IPA, light hoppy and very, very easy drinking.

WINDERMERE IPA (4.3%)

Available in summer only

Tirril Windermere IPA

By request we made an I.P.A. However as we pride ourselves in making easy drinking beers and do not like to battle overly hopped ales, even this our hoppiest beer is still a good session beer.

This light beer uses two New World hops, Cascade and Liberty, to give plenty of hop flavor, without being overpowering. Our version of the classic ale style has soon become one of our best loved ales.

DUNGEON GHYLL (5.0%)

A traditional Full Bodied stout flavoured with a hint of Madagascan Vanilla.

Available in cask by request.

DUNGEON GHYLL STOUT (5.0%)

Available in summer only

dungeon ghyll stout pump clip

Dungeon  Ghyll Stout is our take on a classic stout. We use roast and cara malts  to make the brew as dark as a stout should be but without the  associated bitterness that some malts can give.

To  slightly take the bitter edge of the stout we use proper vanilla  extract - imported from Madagasca - as an allergen free alternative to  milk that would traditionally have been used.


To  make Dungeon Ghyll have the depth of character that any good stout  should have, we stop the ferment with a final gravity of 1015 giving it  real body.


The  casks of Dungeon Ghyll are not always available - as we keg and bottle  most of each brew. However we do take orders for casks every time a brew  is ready.

One of our first three beers from the original brewery in Tirril. Our first light golden ale. Originally named after Charles Gough – The Unfortunate Tourist of Helvellyn (or rather Foxie his faithful dog). Mr Gough having been buried in Tirril in the early 1800’s.This crowd pleasing beer was by far our best seller for over 18 years.

Light and refreshing  with plenty of Goldings for a pleasant hoppy finish.

The very first brew of Windermere Gold, was made at 4.8% abv to be an easy drinking strong beer. So successful were we, that many of our locals returned after their first night on the 4.8% beer being warned they would be barred from the pub by their spouses if they ever came home in such a state again.

These days Windermere Gold is a much more socially acceptable 4% abv.

loughrigg ale

LOUGHRIGG ALE (4.4%)

Named after Loughrigg Fell, distinctively coloured by Munich and Crystal malts a cracking stronger ale.

Tirril Brewery’s third (and final) move was out away from the heart of the Lake District and across to the Eden Valley, where more space could be found for our 20 Barrel, state of the art brewery.

The brand new, purpose built, stainless steel brew kit was carefully fitted into Red House Barn in Long Marton. A Grade II listed sandstone barn, nestled beneath the Pennines.

Again we named a beer after a Lakeland location and used both Munich Malt and Colour 400 Crystal Malt to give a warm ruby red glow to the beer to help the beer reflect its name. As always the beer is brewed down to a final gravity of 1008, making it depetively (if not dangerously) light for a 4.4% abv beer. Once more a selection of British hops help compliment and lift the red malty ale  into a fine strong beer.
