Thirst Run was originally called ‘First Run’, but due to a misunderstanding on the phone the graphic designer came up with ‘Thirst Run’ . The use of ‘Thirst’ has now formed the basis of our range. Thirst Run has always been a very popular beer and at its first beer festival was voted “Best Beer” at the Keswick Beer Festival 2006. In bottle Thirst Run was chosen for “The 50 Best beers” The Independent August 2012. 4.2% 500ml bottle.
