This week see the launch of a charity-supporting beer from Devon’s leading producer of traditional cask ales.

Otter Brewery, based in the Blackdown Hills near Honiton, will be donating a percentage every time a drinker in the South West orders a pint of its specially created ale.

The aim is to raise as much money as possible for the Royal British Legion.

Available to landlords throughout November, Poppy Otter will directly support the Poppy Appeal with 10p from every pint sold (the equivalent of £6.80 from every barrel) going straight to help the charity.

The delicious 5% beer is dark ruby in colour and has a well-balanced flavour with a bittersweet chocolate edge that comes from the Fuggles and Challenger hops used by Head Brewer Keith Bennett.

Patrick McCaig, Sales & Marketing Director explains: “As the Good Pub Guide’s 2013 Brewery of the Year we couldn’t think of a better way to help those who assist our Armed Forces at a time when they could do with a little extra help. It fits perfectly with our support of the community and the people around us and requires our drinkers to do very little indeed!”

Last year a total of over £1,000 was raised with a cheque presented to the Honiton branch in January.
