The ale, which joins Idle Valley, Trent Vale and Skylarks completes the brewery’s quartet named after the major reserves cared for by the charity.
Through donations and sponsorship, the Reserve collection is brewed to support wildlife and habitats across Nottinghamshire. To date local real ale drinkers have helped make funds of over £130,000 available to the trust with over 144 real ales brewed bearing the trust’s badger themed logo.
Attenborough Reserve, the ale, is a 4 per cent Pilsner described as pale. fruity and clean. It is available at pubs across Nottinghamshire throughout the winter. The Reserve is the Wildlife Trust’s flagship site and one of the best loved wildlife areas in the UK. The network of water-filled pits and islands are a haven for many hundreds of species of wildlife and provides people with unrivalled opportunities to see and enjoy wildlife on the edge of the city.
Speaking about the new beer, Erin McDaid of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust said: “We are delighted that the team at Castle Rock Brewery has chosen to celebrate Attenborough with their latest beer. The site is much loved and it was the fight to save the site’s wildlife that led to the formation of the trust back in the 1960’s. Since then it has welcomed millions of visitors and its value for wildlife continues to grow thanks to the hard work of our staff and volunteers. The timing of the beer couldn’t be better as 2016 sees us celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the reserve – so I’m sure many people will happily enjoy a pint of Attenborough Reserve to mark our special year.
