Brewery’s daft ideas prove positive
Hadrian Border Brewery has issued a Christmas special Rudolph’s Ruin (5.5% abv) which is a very pale, hoppy beer with orange and apricot notes – and also launched a gluten-free version of award-winning Grainger Ale (4.6% abv) in cask, keg and bottle.
Hadrian Border is also known for its contributions to charity, with several good causes around the North East benefitting from a percentage of appropriate pints sold. The latest beneficiary is Daft As A Brush cancer charity founded by philanthropist Brian Burney to transport people from their homes in Northumberland to hospital appointments. A cheque for £727 has been handed over – the proceeds from 5,040 pints of Daft As A Brush beer sold during October (£252) and £475 from The Boathouse, Wylam, charity day in November. Well done folks.
