A BROMSGROVE micro-brewery is urging beer-lovers to get their thinking caps on and come up with a name for its new ale being created to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Brew 61 has crafted the tipple using traditional methods at its Greenfields Farm base for this quintessentially English pale ale.
It will be brewed using local hops from Malvern and Hereford.
Brew 61 is known as ‘The Beer Farm’ as the farming environment has always been the inspiration behind its beers – some of the ales have been named after the rural location and the farm’s herd of Highland Cows, while others reflected the flock of Dorset Sheep, as well as ‘Puddles’ the family’s rough coat Jack Russell.
Tim Dunkley, owner of Brew 61, hopes the public will have fun coming up with a name for the new Jubilee Best Bitter.
The name should combine a farming connection with a royal or platinum twist.
One lucky winner will be presented with a mixed case of Brew 61 beers plus six bottles of the new Jubilee brew.
The new beer will be available in bottles for the public to buy, and in casks and kegs for sale to local hospitality venues.
Ten per cent from all sales of the Jubilee Beer will be donated to Bromsgrove-based charity Dodford Children’s Farm, which offers holidays and short breaks for disadvantaged or disabled young visitors.
The closing date for entries is March 22 and people need to be over 18 to take part.
