Tottington pub, the Dungeon Inn, has paid homage to its roots by developing its very own beer, named Whimbury Hill.

The popular Lancashire pub, scooped the award for ‘Best Pint’ at this year’s Daniel Thwaites Awards for Excellence, and to celebrate was invited to the Crafty Dan brewery, in Blackburn, to develop its very own brew.

Licensees Andrew and Terri Eccles were invited to spend the day at the brewery working with the brewing team at Crafty Dan to mix their signature tipple.

Commenting on the brewing process, Terri Eccles said: “It was fantastic to see what goes into making a beer and the importance of getting the right flavours. It’s such a creative process and we spent a lot of time thinking about what we thought our regulars would like and how we wanted it to taste.

"We knew we wanted Bury’s famous Whimberries as one of the most prominent flavours, so choosing the name and designing the pump clip was easy. We now can’t wait for everyone to taste it and let to us know what they think.”

Whimbury Hill is a chestnut ale and will be available throughout the Thwaites pub estate during ‘Cask Ale Week’ (24 September – 4 October).
