Wadworth, the Devizes-based family brewer and pub operator, has brewed a collaborative Pale Ale with The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity. The beer, which is appropriately named Carrier Ale, celebrates the commissioning of the biggest and most powerful aircraft carrier ever built in Britain, HMS Queen Elizabeth, which will become our flagship aircraft carrier once it is commissioned later this year.
Carrier Ale will be available in exclusive bottles through the Wadworth online shop. For every pint and bottle sold, 5p will be donated to The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity; the principal charity of the Royal Navy which supports sailors, marines and their families for life.
Carrier Ale is a 3.6% Pale Ale, with a malt led flavour and character. On the nose it provides a delightful malt aroma; while on the palate it delivers clean and refreshing light malt notes combined with the classic strong hop flavour and finishes with crisp bitterness and is always best served at “sea” temperature.
Chris Welham, CEO at Wadworth, comments: “We are very proud of our association with The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and to help raise money for such a worthwhile cause. We are sure that Carrier Ale will be enjoyed where it is drunk and we hope we can raise a lot of money for the Royal Navy and Royal Marines that have served and are currently serving our country.”
Robert Robson, CEO at Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, comments: “Since 2007, The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity has funded projects and facilities that boost morale for those who serve today, as well as for Royal Navy and Royal Marine veterans and their families. Partnerships, like this one, are hugely important for us to continue raising funds and we are so grateful for Carrier Ale and to Wadworth for their support.”
