New beer supports Blue Flag beaches

We are delighted that Rock-based Sharp’s Brewery has announced the launch of Dawn Patrol, its latest Blue Flag-supporting limited release beer. This is the third 2017 limited release following Two Tides and Rye Rock earlier this year and is now available in pubs, bars and restaurants until the end of August.  

As with previous limited release beers, five pence from every pint of ‘Dawn Patrol’ sold will be donated to the Blue Flag Award at Keep Britain Tidy. Over the past two years, Sharp’s Brewery has donated £28,000 to the Blue Flag programme, which has funded applications for all the Blue Flag and Seaside Awards across Cornwall.

James Nicholls, Senior Brand Manager at Sharp’s Brewery, said: “With our base in Rock, North Cornwall, we are proud supporters of the Blue Flag initiative, a charity that is very close to our hearts, as the beaches and coastline are extremely important to us.

Allison Ogden-Newton, Chief Executive at Keep Britain Tidy added: “We are thrilled to be receiving this support from Sharp’s Brewery, which is helping us to aid beaches and communities in Cornwall and around the country.

“As well as being the national sponsor of the Blue Flag award, which celebrates the country’s very best beaches, Sharp’s Brewery is going the extra mile to support beaches across Cornwall, working with our BeachCare project and the Army, creating the Sharp’s Beach Clean Battalion. We are delighted that together, Keep Britain Tidy and Sharp’s Brewery are making a real difference to the Cornish coast.”
