A new beer created by Derby-based Brunswick Brewing Company to help raise money for charity The Seeing Dogs Alliance sold out in the first week – resulting in charity Chairman Liam Flynn urging more pubs to stock it.
He said: “Sales of a brew called Double Vision deliver vital funds to The Seeing Dogs Alliance and support our critical work to increase the availability of seeing dogs across the UK.
“Our launch of Double Vision went better than expected, showing how awesome the beer itself is, but also how supportive the customers, staff and landlords have been in promoting the great cause that drinking Double Vision supports.
“If we can encourage more pubs across the Midlands to stock Double Vision, we can raise more money to help us in our work, which is so critical now.”
Pubs currently confirmed to sell ‘Double Vision’ include:
- Brunswick Inn, Derby, Derbyshire
- Dead Poets Inn, Holbrook, Derbyshire
- 189 bars, Allestree, Derbyshire
- Talbot Taphouse, Ripley, Derbyshire
- Seven Stars, Rugby, Warwickshire
- Gatehouse Tavern, Coventry, Warwickshire
- Selected pubs within the Everards of Leicestershire estate
Double Vision is a golden 4.4 per cent, hopped with Rakau from New Zealand plus Idaho 7 and Simcoe from the U.S. 10p from each pint sold is donated to the charity to help combat the current shortage of seeing dogs and the urgent need of thousands of visually impaired people across the UK.
