This is a tried and tested very popular Bitter, an award winning session ale with a golden colour and light, clean, quality taste.
Donald Campbell’s Bluebird was recovered in 2001 from Coniston Water where she had lain since the dramatic world record attempt of over 300mph on the 4th of January 1967.
This is a Pilsner Style top fermented Lager using hops from Southern Germany, creating an authentic crisp, clean, Continental style matured beer. Named after the name given to Coniston Water by Norse settlers
