Cockermouth Beer Festival is back once again this November and will be supported by Jennings as they continue their sponsorship for another year. Held in association with Jennings and the Cockermouth round table, the event will be held at the Kirkgate Centre in Cockermouth from the 30th November to the 1st December.

Festival goers will be spoilt for choice with over 60 real ales, lagers and ciders, including the entire Jennings Brewery range.

Jennings’ sponsorship of the Cockermouth Beer Festival resonates well with Cumbria’s history of beer and brewing.

In addition to the vast choice of beer available, there will be a free souvenir glass for everyone that attends along with live music from Hoochie Coochie Moonshine Band on the Friday night and Mojo Rising on the Saturday night.

Tickets to the event are £8 and can be purchased in advance from the Kirkgate Centre, The Swan, The Cock and Bull and Jennings Brewery shop.

Jennings brewery open day marks its 190th year and raises money for Cash for kids!

The brewery held a free family fun day on 8th September and gave the first 190 guests a free gift on arrival as part of the celebrations.

Along with free brewery tours and a real ale bar, the day featured a bouncy castle, face painting, live music and a fabulous four foot beer barrel anniversary cake with chocolate Jennings beer bottles, minted ice and edible beer mats.

£500 was raised for cash for kids – a charity which responds to the needs of children in the local communities so they can live life to the full and realise their individual potential.

Sarah Grave from Jennings said: “One hundred and ninety years is something we are incredibly proud of and including our customers in this milestone celebration makes the occasion that extra bit special. Here’s to another 190 years.”

Jennings have been sponsoring Cockermouth Show for eight years and this year was the best ever! Crowds flocked to the Jennings beer tent on Saturday 4th August and a record amount of beer was sold.

Jennings Brewery Celebrate Their 190th Birthday with a Dashing Event

On the 190th day of the year on their 190th birthday year, Jennings brewery opened its doors to one lucky winner to help join in the celebrations of 190 years of brewing. Sean Banks, who won a competition on Jennings Facebook page by posting a picture of himself enjoying some Jennings beers, was given the opportunity only loyal Jennings drinkers can dream of. In 19 seconds, Mr Banks completed a trolley dash where he was able to grab any Jennings beer and merchandise he wanted… with no final tab!

Mr Banks, left the brewery with a trolley full of beer and merchandise said:

“I didn’t think I would win, you know when you enter competitions with the hope but never think it’s going to happen to you. I couldn’t believe it when they told me the news, today has been incredible…cheers Jennings and Happy Birthday.” Said Sean Banks when leaving the event with his winnings in hand.

“190 years of brewing is something we are incredibly proud of and without the continuous support from our customers we wouldn’t be here today. Including our customers within this milestone celebration makes the occasion that extra bit special. Here’s to another 190 years!” Said Brand Manager from Jennings Brewery.

As part of the ongoing celebrations, Jennings are also hosting a number of different events to ensure everyone is involved within the festivities. Following the success of the trolley dash, next on the agenda is a family fun day. Taking place in September, the event is being held at Jennings brewery and is free entry, with the first 190 guests set to receive a complementary gift on arrival. A BBQ, prosecco bar, Jennings real ale bar, brewery tours and live music are all set to be included, making it a party you’ll not want to miss!

Thirsty Jennings drinking crowds were entertained on Saturday 30th June, where five live music bands played throughout the day in the Jennings Old Cooperage bar as part of the Cockermouth LIVE festival.

The event attracted thousands of people into the town and with the fantastic weather the town was well and truly ALIVE!

Following the success of the event Jennings are hosting their next LIVE music event on Friday 17th August.
