Monday 8th saw the launch of Augusts’ “Natural Selection” beer brewed in support of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust. Woodlark, a dark brown bitter with a gentle smoked aroma had its official unveiling at the Woodlark Pub in Lambley, Nottingham. The pub is situated just 400m from the Wildlife Trust’s Reed Pond Nature Reserve in Lambley and just over 1km from its Ploughman Wood reserve.
In June of next year Castle Rock will have been brewing the Natural Selection for 10 years and have now launched a competition to name the 12 brews for 2011.
Speaking on behalf of Castle Rock Brewery, Commercial Director Colin Wilde said: “It is a remarkable success story for our partnership with the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust to now be entering its second decade. It is fitting that the Woodlark in Lambley is helping launch our competition to name our 2011 Natural Selection Range not only because it is showcasing our special August beer that shares the pub’s name, but they are a great supporter of ours. With two Wildlife Trust nature reserves on the Woodlark’s doorstep it helps emphasise the importance of the local message and the benefits it delivers to local people and their environment”.
The competition is open entry and suggestions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org Please include the suggested beer name along with your date of birth, name, address, and telephone number.
Adrian Redgrove commented “The Natural Selection range has given my brewing team the opportunity to experiment with new ingredient varieties, as well as brew some good old fashioned recipes. We are excited about creating the 2011 beers and hope we get an abundance of great names for us to choose from.”
Woodlark will be available in all Castle Rock pubs whilst stocks last.
