Kirsty and Scott Mackenzie, of Stringers Beer

Stringers Beer, which is owned by Lakeland Inns and based in Ulverston, Cumbria, has brewed its one millionth pint.

A special ale was commissioned as the landmark approached, and it will be on sale to trade from October 14 and to the public from October 22.

Pints will be just £1 at Lakeland Inns pubs while stocks last, while one lucky trade customer will get a free barrel if they find a golden sticker.

Managing director of Lakeland Inns, Kirsty Mackenzie, said: “So much has happened at Stringers since we acquired the business last year.

“We have invested a huge amount into new equipment, an expansion of the brewhouse, into marketing the business, and growing its distribution network.

“We have a dedicated team working to ensure we can meet the growing demand for Stringers’ products, especially the gluten-free beers, which we struggle to meet demand for.

“We take extra care over every brew we make, but the batch which contained the millionth pint was extra special.”

Last month, an expansion of the brewhouse was completed amid growing demand for the brewery’s ales

The ale, called the Millionth Pint Brew, is a 3.9% ABV pale ale. Just 1,760 pints of it will find their way into pubs in the North West and beyond.

The special price is a way of the brewery celebrating the milestone, while thanking the thousands of real ale lovers who treat themselves to a pint of its beers every week.

Stringers is based on the Low Mill Business Park, in Ulverston. Last month, an expansion of the brewhouse was completed amid growing demand for the brewery’s wide range of ales.

The business was founded in 2008 by Jon Kyme and was acquired by Lakeland Inns last year. Jon remains a key part of the team in his role as head brewer. He is supported by office manager, Barbara McMullan, Stuart Smith, and apprentice Charlie Slater. 

The £1 pint offer launches on October 22 at The Sun Inn, Ulverston, The Black Cock, Broughton-in-Furness, and The Commodore, in Grange-Over-Sands. Each pub will have an allocation of Millionth Pint Brew and the promotions will be live until the pumps run dry.
