Now wouldn’t that be a refreshing sight? Just like a glass of Thwaites Wainwright. An award-winning golden ale, it’s named in honour of the celebrated Lakeland fellwalker Alfred Wainwright. After a long walk, you’ll find its hoppy aroma and citrussy flavour welcome refreshment indeed.

Like the beer, our campaign is inspired by Thwaites’ fellow Lancastrian, the fellwalker and author Alfred Wainwright. The ads extol the simple pleasures of the countryside as a refreshing antidote to modern life. The campaign uses Wainwright’s style of illustration and type, as found in his famous walking guides and on the beer’s label and font clip, and the ads are underpinned by the line “A breath of fresh ale”.
