Brewing company pulls out the hops to support Air Ambulance

Birmingham Brewing Company is teaming up with the crew at Midlands Air Ambulance Charity to introduce a low-alcohol brew to the charity’s festive gift range in a bid to raise funds for the local lifesaving service.

‘Sober Brummie’ is the latest addition to Birmingham Brewing Company’s range of beverages and Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s festive merchandise.

Like the other brews in their range, its suitable for vegans and gluten free. The brewery is donating five per cent of each sale to support Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s critical care aircrew and vital work this Christmas.

The partnering organisations are jointly hosting an exclusive beer-tasting event, virtually on Thursday 3rd December. The networking event, sponsored by Wall James Chappell Solicitors, will give corporate attendees ‘first sips’ of the new brew via luxury hampers including four beers.

Pam Hodgetts, corporate partnerships manager for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity said: “It’s thanks to local businesses showing their support that we are able to continue funding lifesaving missions across the Midlands.

“We are excited to try the ‘Sober Brummie’ brew from Birmingham Brewing Company, even more so, knowing that a percentage of the sales will support our rapid response pre-hospital emergency service.”

Paul Harwood, owner and founder of Birmingham Brewing Company, added: “After four years in development, we’re finally ready to ‘take off’ with our low-alcohol Brummie beer.

“In contrast to most low and non-alcohol beers our 0.5% ABV brew is brewed in a traditional way to retain its flavour, and like all our other beers, it is gluten free and vegan.

“There are always times when we need to be a ‘Sober Brummie’ and we hope that this is enjoyed by all. We are delighted to partner with Midlands Air Ambulance Charity on this low alcohol brew, as it has a perfect synergy with the charity’s mission.”
