A new beer has been created by the Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery, ahead of the newest Taste Cumbria food festival.

The Taste Cumbria Easter Brew is on sale from today, and as well as during the festival weekend from Friday the 14th to Sunday the 16th of April.

The event’s beer festival will be held in the Royal Barn on New Road over the festival weekend.

Stuart Taylor of Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery has created the new ale and given it an Easter flavour, courtesy of another famed Cumbrian business – Kennedys Fine Chocolates of Orton, near Penrith.

Stuart said: “The six per cent porter has been made with dark Belgian chocolate and I’ve also used super fruity citra hops which have given the rich chocolatey brew a citrus edge.

“It’s been great to get involved in this, and we’re really pleased to be hosting the beer festival over the Taste Cumbria weekend too. I think this is a great new addition to Kirkby Lonsdale’s calendar of events and it will be great to see loads of visitors here over Easter.”
