‘Lifesaver’ offers aid for air ambulance

A SUFFOLK mico-brewery is supporting the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) with a special beer to celebrate the charity’s 10th anniversary.

The award-winning Mill Green Brewery at Edwardstone, near Sudbury, is brewing a premium golden ale called “Lifesaver”.

The beer is to be officially launched on April 21 at the opening of the East Anglian Beer Festival, run by the West Suffolk branch of the Campaign for Real Ale.

The festival, to be held at the Bury St Edmunds Corn Exchange, has also chosen EAAA as one of the charities it will be supporting this year.

A limited edition bottled version of the beer will also be available from the charity and other outlets during this year only.

Tom Norton, who brewed the beer, said: “I have made this beer to a special recipe. It is a genuine one-off, so those who want to try it will have to do so during this limited period of availability.”

The brewery is in the grounds of the White Horse pub at Edwardstone, where the first brew of ‘Lifesaver’ has already gone on sale.

Richard Robinson, EAAA fundraising and marketing director, said: “This is a wonderful gesture from Tom to make a donation from every pint and bottle sold. I hope real ale enthusiasts will seek out the beer and encourage landlords to have it as a guest beer if they can.”
