The Chiltern Brewery are launching a new limited edition ale – Pride of Bucks and Berks 4.2% vol. The beer celebrates a top award won by the Brewery.
‘Pride of’ is a charity ale too. Every pint of the new ale sold will raise 5p for registered charity Horatio’s Garden and specifically for the project to create and care for an accessible garden sanctuary in the spinal injuries unit at Stoke Mandeville, that will provide solace for patients.
Dark amber with a smooth roast malt taste and a citrussy aroma, the ale uses the best Class A Maris Otter, Crystal and Roast Barley malts combined with Goldings, Fuggles and Cascade hops to produce a classic English best bitter that matches beautifully with a Ploughman’s lunch, chicken, pork, salads and stews. It is available to Click & Collect online at www.chilternbrewery.co.uk and at their brewery shop in Terrick. You will also spot the beer on tap at many pubs in the area.
Brothers George and Tom Jenkinson and The Chiltern Brewery team were voted ‘The Pride of Buckinghamshire and Berkshire Life’ last year in the prestigious annual Food and Drink Awards from leading regional magazine title Buckinghamshire & Berkshire Life. The special award recognises individuals and businesses which actively and proudly promote the great local produce that Buckinghamshire and Berkshire have to offer, so they decided to launch a beer in tribute.
“To be voted pride of two counties that have such a fabulous food heritage is superb” said Tom Jenkinson. “We work hard to create great tasting new ales and think this is a cracker – and a fitting tribute. We are also very excited to be working with such a fabulous charity as Horatio’s Garden.”
“The funds raised will help to bring a beautiful garden sanctuary to patients with spinal cord injuries and we’re hugely grateful to The Chiltern Brewery for supporting Horatio’s Garden at Stoke Mandeville” added Executive Trustee, Treasurer of Horatio’s Garden, Victoria Holton.
