Campaign Ale gets brewing with local CAMRA

To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of CAMRA on 16th March, we have created an all-time classic IPA in association with our local CAMRA branch.
The CAMRA members chose a generously hopped recipe with a characterful bitter flavour and Bramling Cross and Celeia in the Hopback for a pronounced floral hop aroma. In addition, to make this recipe more special, further Celeia hops are added in a muslin bag into the fermentation vessel to diffuse even more essential hop oils for a superbly developed hop profile. CAMRA members were onsite at the Brewery to participate with the mashing-in.
Campaign Ale will be available in Cask as our monthly special in March at 5.0% ABV.

Ark Ale Launched for Noah's Ark Trust

Wye Valley Brewery has launched a premium amber ale to support Noah’s Ark Trust – a local charity that provides grief support service for children,
young people and their families after the death of mum, dad or someone else close.

Cask conditioned Ark Ale will be available in good pubs across the region during February with Wye Valley Brewery donating 10p for every pint sold. In addition, a special bottle-conditioned Ark Ale is being launched to be on sale for 2011 from Wye Valley Brewery shop and other selected stockists, with Wye Valley Brewery donating 5p for every bottle sold.

Vernon comments, “Noah’s Ark Trust does such important work supporting bereaved families in the local area, we wanted to support them as our charity partner for the brewery this year. We thought we should start our fundraising with the thing we do best – so we’ve brewed them a special beer, amber in colour to match the charity’s characteristic orange.”
