You may have heard of drinkers for Ukraine, they are raising money for the humanitarian relief effort in Ukraine.
One of their ideas was to get brewers to devise a recipe that breweries here would brew and the proceeds go to charity.
Quite a few UK breweries have stepped up, but as an avid homebrewer I thought I would have a go......
The recipe is for a non imperial stout with a twist, the twist is a nod towards a Ukrainian dish.
Yep it's got beetroot in it and guess what it works !
So if anyone would like to donate to a good cause in return you'll receive a sample (330 ml bottle).
All you have to do is send me proof of your donation.
You can then either collect a bottle from KT4, I could deliver locally or if you want to cover the postage I'm happy to post it .
There's more information in the link including one to donate. Check out solidarity brew .
The stout has a beetroot aroma and taste, I'm also getting chocolate, a decent mouthfeel and a bitter finish.
It's also vegan and might count towards your 5 a day. Abv is 6.5 %.
It's also on keg and if you are lucky enough to be passing next week you might get a taste!
Maybe post up on the beer thread
Was trying to get maximum exposure.
How do I move it ?
Do you have a 'good cause' in mind? Presumably there's some specific UA ones they have in mind?
Anyway, I'm up for donating and collecting a brew
Ideal, There's a link to the red Cross humanitarian relief effort on the first page ......
Of course I didn't scroll that far. I'm not MTV generation, I'm just a multi-tasking, ooh look over there, plays music, walks to watch 2min of TV shows, opens 13 different tabs looking for various bike parts that need replacing, checks email, does 2min work, distracted easily person.
Bunging them some cashola now.
Awesome! You're the first from here !
Are you collecting ?
Can deliver between kt4 and Earl's Court or I could post ?
I'm in Ealing so could swap a turbo session one lunch time to head down or after work one night? Earls is a lot closer - is that your day or night location?
Earl's court is my start/finish location.
Does Saturday around 1pm Earl's Court tube ,Warwick Road entrance work for you ?
