But there’s still plenty of drinking up time - and the chance to help local charity Joseph’s Goal!

The fledgling brewery, which only opened in October 2019, had a full beer calendar before the Covid-19 pandemic struck.

As a result, they had the small matter of 17,000 pints of beer to shift - without having had time to establish much of a customer base.

Mark Dearman, who covers the sales part of the business, came up with the idea of slashing the price of the beer, and donating half of the profits to Joseph’s Goal.

Customers would also hopefully become hooked on the product ... and the response over the last few weeks has been fantastic.

Already, the charity has also received more than £600, which will go towards funding vital research into the rare genetic disorder NKH.

And Mark is hoping one final week of trading - boosted by the upcoming Bank Holiday - will help push the total into four figures.

“We’re delighted to have raised so much money for a great cause,” said Mark.

“But we’d like to go for one last push and I’d really like to take the total raised to £1,000.

“We will deliver Thursday and Friday plus if required on Saturday morning.

“And hopefully the Bank Holiday will boost the amount for Joseph’s Goal.”

The following beers will be available, in 2-litre bottles or 5-litre mini kegs:

* TEN PIN ABV 4.0% - TRADITIONAL BITTER;

* SPRING RAIN ABV 4.2% - PALE ALE;

* BIG BLACK SMOKE ABV 4.9% - PORTER.

The 2-litre bottles will be priced at £5 each, and the 5-litre mini kegs will be priced at £20 (this includes the price of the keg, which can be used again).
