Jennings Brewery celebrates 190 years of brewing in 2018

Jennings Brewery is celebrating 190 years of brewing in 2018 with a programme of events and promotions throughout the year and is urging Cumbrian residents and visitors to join the fun.

In 1828, George IV was on the throne and the Duke of Wellington was Prime Minister when the son of a local maltster, John Jennings, began brewing in his Lorton-based brew house.

190 years later Jennings Brewery and its famous Cockermouth brewery is synonymous with the Lake District and Cumbria and is renowned the world over for its premium award-winning ales and warm Lakeland hospitality.

This year will play host to a series of family fun days hosted by the brewery team and the Jennings bar will be appearing at many of the region’s outdoor events with special discounts on offer. A limited edition commemorative pump clip for their flagship beer, Cumberland Ale, is being produced for beer and pub enthusiasts.

For passionate Jennings’ fans there will be commemorative glassware, T-shirts and merchandise available throughout the year that will be must-have items for collectors.

Sarah Grave, brand manager at Jennings Brewery said: “As we move into our twentieth decade we had to mark this year as something very special. It’s not very often that brands are around for this length of time so we are very proud to celebrate our 190-year milestone and hope that fellow Cumbrians will share our pride and join us for a beer or two!”
