Timothy Taylor’s release a limited-edition charity beer in support of Brewgooder Global Gathering campaign

Timothy Taylor’s introduces our limited-edition charity beer, Well Brewed, a one-off ale specially created in support of the Brewgooder Global Gathering campaign.

Launched in November 2019, the campaign aims to partner with hundreds of breweries in the UK and around the world to brew unique, small-batch beers. A coordinated release of the beers will take place over the weekend of World Water Day – March 20-22nd 2020.

Each Global Gathering brew will raise upwards of £500 contributing to a fundraising target of £250,000 for the overall campaign. All proceeds will be donated to The Brewgooder Foundation and spent on its clean water projects in 2020/21.

Well Brewed is a 3.5% ABV dark amber ale that is well-hopped using traditional and modern English-grown varieties including Fuggles and Goldings and will be launched on Friday 20 March in several pubs within the Timothy Taylor’s estate. These include the Royal Oak in Ripon, the Brown Cow in Bingley, the Town Hall Tavern in Leeds, the Fleece in Haworth, the Grouse in Oldfield, the Dog & Gun in Oxenhope and Malsis, the White Swan in Fence, the White Horse in Thornton, the Crossroads in Wainstalls, the Boltmakers Arms in Keighley, the New Inn in Cononley, the Hare & Hounds in Wadsworth and the Woolly Sheep in Skipton.

The beer will also be a special guest at Ilkley Brewery’s Yorkshire Water Party from 21-22 March which is being held in their brewery yard and is free to attend. It is also being included in the Brewgooder Tap Takeover line-up at Magic Rock Brewery over the same weekend.

Brewgooder Global Gathering info:

Brewgooder are a Scottish craft beer brand. The Global Gathering is a collaborative brewing project on a mission to provide clean water for 100,000 people in developing countries.

Launched in November 2019, the campaign aims to partner with hundreds of breweries in the UK and around the world to brew unique, small-batch beers. A coordinated release of the beers will take place over the weekend of World Water Day – March 20-22nd 2020.

The campaign has gained the backing from brewers from California to Hong Kong, with the UK represented by over 145 brewers from Fort William in the Scottish Highlands, to Bodmin in Cornwall.

There will be one-off beers from Northern Monk, Cloudwater, Vocation, Harbour, Beavertown, Tiny Rebel, Curious Brewing – to mention just a few of the many brilliant contributors.

Each Global Gathering brew will raise upwards of £500 contributing to a fundraising target of £250,000 for the overall campaign. All proceeds will be donated to The Brewgooder Foundation and spent on its clean water projects in 2020/21.

Bars and drinks retailers across the UK are being encouraged to support the record-breaking collaboration by stocking Global Gathering beers. Licensees wanting to be part of this craft beer movement should ask suppliers for the Global Gathering Brews from their chosen participating brewers. A full list of participating breweries, bars and stockists will be available on Brewgooder’s website in the lead up to the event.

To date, Brewgooder has worked with BrewDog (who will also be releasing a special beer for World Water Day) on their flagship clean water lager, with 100% of profits going to support over 130 projects in Malawi. These projects include well rehabilitations, new borehole construction, sanitation systems and water mapping to ensure the long-term sustainability of well constructions. Through the Brewgooder Foundation, the projects have already positively impacted 65,000 lives and counting.
