WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
We’re celebrating 20 years of friendship with Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, the county’s largest environmental charity. For two decades, Castle Rock Brewery and Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust have been working together in a unique partnership, championing and protecting nature through creative initiatives. Over the years, the Castle Rock community has helped raised over £130,000 for the work of the Trust.
In February 2022, we are celebrating this special anniversary with a collab brew, and we want you to be involved by designing the artwork. This design competition provides a rare opportunity to be a beer designer and see your work on bars and in beer shops across the UK.

The Pilot Project Commences!
And the Pilot Project commences! We now have a secondary, and much smaller, brew kit which we are using to brew limited edition beers. The aim is to use the freedom the smaller kit gives us to explore and experiment with new brewing processes, techniques, beer styles and ingredients. Join us on our journey! #PilotProject
