Introducing our new Devil’s Bridge IPA

We’re excited to reveal a brand new beer this winter! Devil’s Bridge is an IPA that fits seamlessly into our existing range and is available in can, cask and keg. It’s 5.2% ABV and is brewed with new world hops, giving it a mouthful of citrus notes, combined with a lasting bitter end.

Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery MD, Stu, said: “We’re really excited to launch Devil’s Bridge this winter. It’s a true IPA and something that’s been missing from our range, so it fits in perfectly. It’s a bit different, and it fits in with the current trend of hoppy IPAs.”

Speaking of the branding, Stu commented: “We’ve opted for a really funky design as opposed to our classic designs, so it’ll stand out and look very cool amongst the other beers available on the shelves. There’s an interesting nod to local folklore too, as we’ve featured the tale of Devil’s Bridge on the can.”

The iconic three-arched ‘Devil’s Bridge’ in Kirkby Lonsdale is thought to date back to the 12th or 13th century and is a scheduled ancient monument. Local legend tells the following tale…

Once upon a time, an old woman lived on the banks of the Lune. One night her cow strayed across the river and couldn’t be tempted back.

The devil appeared and offered to build a bridge in exchange for the soul of the first body to cross it. He constructed the Bridge himself and left a print in the wet stone.

The woman met him at the Bridge, took a bun from her bag and threw it across the Bridge. Her small dog went to retrieve it.

The devil howled in anger at being tricked before vanishing forever.

Stu added: “We like to name our beers after iconic locations or scenery in Kirkby Lonsdale, so we’re happy that we’ve been able to do this again with Devil’s Bridge. We already have a lot of variety in our range with twelve different styles, but this is a true IPA, and it’s something we’ve wanted to do for a while. We hope our customers will enjoy it!”


Royal Lager is now available in cans

We also have another development to announce, as our Royal Lager is now available in cans. Due to its popularity in keg, Royal Lager is now available in can too. Royal Lager is a 4.9% ABV flavoursome and refreshing Pilsner style lager.

Both beers are available to buy from the Royal Barn in Kirkby Lonsdale, or online at klbrewery.com
