In just six weeks’ time Andrew Brocken, Director of the Burscough Brewery Company Ltd, will be taking on the 19, 341 feet of Kilimanjaro to raise funds for Beating Bowel Cancer in memory of a good friend and “drinking buddy” who passed away earlier this year.
Fellow directors in the Brewery decided to support this challenge in a number of ways and are pleased to announce the launch of a limited edition “Kilimanjaro 2012” beer which is now available.
Kilimanjaro 2012 is a 4.0% blonde beer brewed using American hops to give it a delicate citrus note with an estery blackcurrant finish and herbal type aroma.
All profits from the sale of this beer will go directly to the charity.
Mike McCombe, fellow Director at the Brewery said, “This is a great way of supporting both Andy and the charity but also provides our customers with the opportunity to support them both as well. Our customers are always looking for something new and we expect this beer to sell out very quickly”

The Burscough Brewing Company Ltd is the only microbrewery based in West Lancashire and commenced brewing in November 2009. Located in the cobbled courtyard of the very successful Hop Vine public house in the centre of Burscough village they have quickly established themselves across both the North West of England and further afield. Due to demand plans are in place to relocate the brewery and to expand production to a new 20bbl plant in the very near future.If you enjoyed this post, make sure you subscribe to my RSS feed!
