Tirril – Old Faithful

500ml | APV:5% | GLUTEN FREE


One of our first three beers from the original brewery in Tirril. Our first light golden ale. Originally named after Charles Gough – The Unfortunate Tourist of Helvellyn (or rather Foxie his faithful dog). Mr Gough having been buried in Tirril in the early 1800’s.This crowd pleasing beer was by far our best seller for over 18 years.

Light and refreshing  with plenty of Goldings for a pleasant hoppy finish.

The very first brew of Old Faithful, was made at 4.8% abv to be an easy drinking strong beer. So successful were we, that many of our locals returned after their first night on the 4.8% beer being warned they would be barred from the pub by their spouses if they ever came home in such a state again.

These days Old Faithful is a much more socially acceptable 4% abv.


“Tirril Brewery was founded to create authentic British Beer for a traditional British Inn using only the finest British ingredients. Today we still do not compromise those basic principles. How we make, our ales, lagers and gins, is still based on quality and locality now complimented by excellent service.

We brew using only the best ingredients, almost exclusively British, with the aim of making the finest beers without following trends or using gimmicks, but simply good old fashioned, beer flavoured beer, from hops, malt and pure Eden Valley water.”
