Pennine Way Beer Launch!

19th June 2017

Official Pennine Way Beer will be launched on Friday 30th June 2017!

To celebrate the launch the Pennine Way Rangers will be leading three free guided walks along iconic sections of the Pennine Way, returning to a local pub for an opportunity to sample the official beer. Three breweries have each produced brand new beers to be associated with the Pennine Way, and each will be making a donation towards the maintenance of the trail for every pint sold. The launch events will be linked to a brewery and are located as follows:


The Old Nag’s Head, Edale

Free guided walk up Kinder Scout starting at 10am in the main village car park and finishing at the pub around 3pm to sample ‘Pennine Light’.

A moderately strenuous 7 mile walk exploring old and new routes of the Pennine Way on the southern slopes of Kinder Scout. This is a classic walk with stunning views!


The Crown, Horton in Ribblesdale

Free guided walk up Pen-y-ghent starting at 11am in the National Park car park and finishing at the pub around 3pm to sample ‘Pennine Ambler’.
