St Andrews Brewing Company has released Above & Beyond, a beer specially brewed to raise money for the RNLI.
10p from every pint sold and 5p from every can will be donated to the lifesaving charity. The beer was launched at the RNLI Anstruther Lifeboat Open Day on Saturday 25th May.
Ben Wallace, Sales Manager at St Andrews Brewing Co said, “RNLI volunteer lifeboat crews and lifeguards do a fantastic job for our seaside communities around the whole of the UK, especially so in our home-region of east Fife. We’re delighted to be celebrating that and help raise funds for the RNLI by brewing this bespoke beer. The more beer sold the more money we can raise for the RNLI, should anyone like to find out more about the beer please visit our website”.
10 miles south east from where the beer is brewed, is the fishing town of Anstruther. The Lifeboat crews have been saving lives at sea for well over 150 years. Speaking about the benefits a partnership such as this will have to the charity, station coxswain Michael Bruce said: “We at Anstruther are delighted to support the efforts of St Andrews Brewing Company in the introduction of Above & Beyond. As a charity, we rely on the support of the public. This month, the RNLI embark on the month-long campaign called MAYDAY which focuses on the fundraising efforts for our kit. Partnerships such as this go a long way in allowing the crews to have the best of kit and equipment and to continue the lifesaving work that we do”.
Described as a 4.2% fresh, fruity summer beer, Above & Beyond Golden Ale will be available in 30L and 50L steel keg, 9 gallon cask and 330ml cans from Saturday 25th May 2019. The St Andrews Brewing Co venues, located in South St and North St in St Andrews, Potterrow in Edinburgh and Caird Hall in Dundee, will be pouring the beer on draught as well as stocking the cans.
