Sharp’s Brewery is supporting Friends of Bude Sea Pool through sales of Cornish Coaster by donating money from every pint sold in the Bude area.
Sharp’s Brewery and its team members have a strong connection to the Bude area with the brewery being based just down the coast in Rock. It has a number of customers in and around the town and many team members regularly enjoy the sea pool.
Running from April through to September 2019, 15p from each pint of Coaster sold through pubs and events local to the Bude area will be donated to the charity. Coaster will also feature at fundraising events, such as pub quizzes or comedy nights with funds raised going to FoBSP. The Bay View Inn and Bude Golf Club both have Coaster on supply, whilst The Falcon has taken it on as a guest beer.
Award-winning cask ale Coaster was originally brewed for the brewery’s launch in 1994. Named after a style of boat which on occasion can be seen plying its trade near the brewery’s home in Rock, this moreish and refreshing cask beer is the perfect beer to quench the thirst on a hot summer’s day.
Regional On-Trade Manager at Sharp’s Brewery, Dan Frost said, “We are continually inspired by the dedication that the Friends of Bude Sea Pool (FoBSP) display. The pool has almost become synonymous with Bude and serves as a unique focal point for the community there. Access to the pool is unrestricted and free of charge, although it costs over £40,000 every year to keep it open and safe! Therefore, we want to do all that we can to help the incredible volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the attraction to ensure that all (including myself) can enjoy it throughout the year. We hope that everyone gets behind this and makes Coaster their drink for the summer to boost funds for the Sea Pool”’.
Tracey Robinson, FoBSP Visitor Giving Co-Ordinator said, “We are delighted that Sharp’s Brewery is implementing this initiative to support us. This is the first time we’ve worked with the brewery and we think that the opportunity for expanding the sale of a beer brand whilst benefiting our community has huge potential. It’s also great timing with the summer just around the corner.”
