The Lakesman Triathlon, which in 2018 will feature the award winning full distance event, and also the brand new Lakesman Half has previousy received fantastic feedback from competitors, spectators and locals alike. Their independent research found that 100% of spectators would come back to watch the event again, and a fantastic 97% of athletes would compete again and recommend the event to others. The 2016 event was also ranked as one of the UK’s best triathlon events. This is why Jennings are so excited to be part of this local event this year!

Treat your Dad this Father’s day to a tour of Jennings. Saturday 16th June 2018

We are extremely proud to announce that Sneck Lifter has won this prestigious award. Sneck Lifter is one of the Brewery’s flagship beers and this award enhances the beer as a true stand out champion.

Sneck Lifter was entered, and then went on to win the North West Regional heats last year, in the Old Ales and Strong Mild Category, taking the beer to the finals which took place on the opening day of the Great British Winter Beer Festival in Norwich.

Jeremy Pettman – Head Brewery at Jennings Brewery said: “We are absolutely delighted that Sneck Lifter has won the award! The ale was originally brought out as a seasonal winter warmer in 1990, it proved to be so popular that it became a permanent ale in our portfolio in 1995. Jennings Brewery is celebrating its 190th year of brewing this year  and this award goes to highlight why we are such a long established brewery, producing quality cask ales”.

Come and join in the fun at Jennings Brewery on Saturday 31st March. Lots of fun and games for the kids! As part of our 190th birthday year celebrations we will be giving away 190 prizes! All proceeds will be going to our registered charity for 2018 – Cash4Kids.

We are holding a quiz night on Friday 2nd March – come along and answer various rounds of questions from general knowledge, sport, music and nostalgic questions covering the past 190 years.
