Brewery Raises Funds for Southdowns Way
Langham Brewery has released the first bottles of its classic South Downs Best Bitter to support work in the South Downs National Park, including a campaign to raise funds for critical repairs on the South Downs Way national trail.
Five pence from every bottle sold will go to the South Downs National Park Trust’s ‘Mend our Way’ campaign to fix broken sections of the South Downs Way.
The independent craft microbrewery, which produces cask conditioned real ales and keg beers including Halfway to Heaven, Hip Hop and Arapaho, is based within the National Park on the Cowdray Estate, near Petworth, West Sussex. Langham became the first corporate partner of the South Downs National Park Trust, which launched last year.
Lesley Foulkes, the brewery’s co-founder said: “We’re thrilled with our South Downs Best Bitter which features a striking image inspired by the beautiful South Downs on its label. We are aiming to raise a significant amount over the next couple of years towards projects in the National Park, including vital restoration of sections of the South Downs Way.”
Walk this way: New South Downs information point
The steam-heated brewery is also creating a South Downs National Park Information Point at the brewery and has signed up to the National Park Authority’s new Cyclists and Walkers Initiative.
Lesley said: “The information point will be a place where weary cyclists, walkers
and people just passing by can drop in and enjoy refreshments in convivial
surroundings and discover the delights and possibilities of the National Park, the
South Downs Way and surrounding countryside.”
