777: Kirkby Lonsdale | Ruskin’s

20220708_160506_001The brewery: “Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery Co Ltd was established February 2009…….After many months of planning and preparation, the brewery was finally installed by Porter Brewing Company and is situated at the Old Station Yard, Kirkby Lonsdale.”

The beer: “Brewed using fine Maris Otter malted barley complimented with Magnum and Brewers Gold hops to give a fruity and spicy characteristic, with a lasting dry finish…..The name of the first beer produced, “Ruskins”, comes from the iconic Ruskin’s View which Turner famously painted in 1816.”

Good old Booth’s supermarket is always a good source of ales when I’m up north and this first of a number procured from their store in Kewsick did not disappoint. Very tasty indeed without being too potent.
