We enjoyed a very interesting tour of the Hawkshead Brewery, in Staveley, Cumbria, who make real ale. We were given an opportunity to examine various types of barley and hops and at the end, we were given a voucher to sample two half pints of beer. As there were four of us, with one not drinking beer, three of us enjoyed samples of eight different types of beer. Some were heavy, some light and fruity. Hawkshead Red Ale was one of the favourites. All in all, a fascinating tour and it's good to be supporting local industries.
