The Craven Arms Pub Garden Sponsor

Inspired by the author Alfred Wainwright, famous for his Lakeland Fell Guidebooks. Wainwright was originally brewed as a seasonal beer but because it was so unusually refreshing it became an instant hit with drinkers throughout the UK.

Finding, scaling and overcoming personal mountains was what the legendary Alfred Wainwright lived for. And he was anything but conventional in his approach. Over the course of his 84 years, he walked over 100,000 miles of Britain’s more challenging countryside - always preferring to go off the beaten track, cutting his own path and creating ‘expeditions’ entirely of his own making. For every summit Wainwright conquered through his passion and commitment, each one delivered the ultimate reward.

"We’re thrilled to be involved in the first ever Countryfile Live event at Castle Howard. Having been involved at the Blenheim event in 2018 with the Wainwright Book Prize, we are excited to take our brand back to its spiritual home in the North.”

Wainwright Golden Beer is a seriously refreshing beer which uses a unique combination of hops and 100% Maris Otter malt to provide subtle sweet notes and a delicately citrus aroma. And the result… a perfectly refreshing reward if you enjoy your ale lightly hopped, with delicate fruity scents, or even if you’re normally a lager drinker who welcomes something easy drinking and light.
