Trust says “cheers” to Peakstones Rock brewery

Wednesday 15th November 2017

The county’s largest nature conservation is saying “cheers” to celebrate the fifth anniversary of a special fundraising ale created by local brewery Peakstones Rock.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust and the Alton based brewer will soon be celebrating the fifth anniversary of ‘Peregrine Ale’ – a fundraising beer designed to support the charity.

Five pence from each pint sold is donated to the Trust, with around £1,300 being raised from sales of the beer.

It is sold in pubs across the county, and is also available in bottles to enjoy at home direct from Peakstones’ micro pub Crossways in Blythe Bridge, Bargain Booze in Cheadle and Hetty’s Tearoom in Froghall.

The beer is a big seller in a number of local pubs, including the Lazy Trout in Meerbrook, the Greyhound in Burston and the Olde Rock Inn in Upper Hulme.

James Dennison, Fundraising and Membership Manager at Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, said: “The beer has proved to be really popular across Staffordshire and we are grateful to Peakstones Rock Brewery for the valuable support over the past five years.

“If you haven't tried it and you see it in a pub, it's definitely worth giving a go, and it also helps to support Staffordshire Wildlife Trust and the work we carry out across the county.”

Peakstones Rock celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2015 and produce nine different ales in their 4.5 barrel plant based in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

David Edwards formed Peakstones back in 2005. He said: “The trust carries out excellent work around the county and we look forward to many more years supporting them.”
