Powderkeg Brewery & Surfers Against Sewage launch beer for #plasticfreeoceans

Plastic pollution has been a hot topic recently and is one of the biggest environmental problems the planet is facing. Powderkeg Brewery is joining forces with Surfers Against Sewage to raise money to tackle plastic pollution, and increase awareness of the problem.

A new beer, aptly named ‘Brainwave’, will see 10p in every pint sold go straight to Surfers Against Sewage to make our coastlines a cleaner, brighter, better place for us all to enjoy.

Brainwave is a light, summery ale perfect for sunny afternoons by the sea. Balancing delicate, sweet malt with Cascade and Crystal hops, this beer will leave you feeling as fresh as a clear blue (plastic free) ocean.

Surfers Against Sewage have campaigned for cleaner seas for nearly 40 years, and are tackling plastic pollution as their #1 priority. They are uniquely placed to inspire, equip and unite local communities in response to this plastic pollution overwhelming our oceans, creating a growing environmental movement to reverse and remove the threat.

SAS were instrumental in the campaign for the single-use plastic bag charge, which has already eliminated 6 billion plastic bags from the UK, demonstrating the dramatic impact of campaigning for legislative change. They are now campaigning for the introduction of a deposit return system on throwaway plastic bottles, and the first few weeks of 2017 saw over 200,000 people join them in this call with their Message In A Bottle petition.

Brainwave is launching on June 16th in keg and cask and will be available with wholesalers and direct from Powderkeg across the South West and nationally via For supply information please contact
