Breweries are being invited to put forward a proposal to brew an official Pennine Way beer!
The Pennine Way is Britain’s oldest National Trail and undoubtedly its best known walking route. Over the past 50 years people have been embarking on this 268 mile journey along the spine of England, from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders.
Over 300,000 people walked part of the Pennine Way in 2015-16, with an estimate of 2,000 people completing the full length of the trail each year. Northern hospitality is a significant part of walking the Pennine Way, with many pubs located along or close to the route offering rest and refreshment.
Alfred Wainwright notoriously left money behind the bar of the Border Hotel in Kirk Yetholm so that anyone who had walked the Pennine Way could be rewarded with a free pint!
National Trail are inviting breweries to put forward a proposal to become the sole producer of an official Pennine Way beer for up to 3 years. This is an exciting opportunity to join forces with an iconic National Trail that is part of British heritage. They are welcoming expressions of interest until the 17th March 2017.
