Thornbridge: KMF Pale Ale aids the Cumbrian Flood Relief

In November we became one of the sponsors of Kendal Mountain Festival, a world class event that ‘sets the standard as an innovative, inclusive and creative celebration of everything outdoors’. We wanted to work with the festival as we felt they shared many of our values, striving for quality and fun whilst being inspired by the outdoors environment that we are blessed to work in.


To celebrate the partnership we brewed KMF a 4.8% Pale Ale, brewed with big American hops that entices with Grapefruit and Mandarin aromas before exploding with tropical fruit flavour. The beer was a big hit at the festival on draft and in bottle.

We have been donating an amount from the sale of each keg and bottle to the Kendal Mountain Festival charity funds, however in light of recent suffering facing people in the area due to the flooding we will now be doubling our donations from each keg and bottle sold direct from the brewery and from selected Booths stores from which it will soon be available.  We hope this donation goes a little way to helping people at this time in Kendal and the surrounding area.
