Box Steam brews fundraising beer for Movember

Based in the Wiltshire village of Holt, Box Steam Brewery has partnered with a national pub group to promote awareness of men’s health.

The family run regional brewer has agreed the supply of a November guest beer to 1,300 pubs run by the national operator, Punch.

Produced in support of Prostate Cancer UK, for the month now widely recognised as Movember, every pint of Handlebar will include a 5p donation from the Wiltshire brewery.

A full bodied 3.4% ABV copper coloured bitter, Box Steam’s charitable pint is brewed with New Zealand Motueka hops, which add a lemon and lime twist to the beer’s clean and refreshing taste.

“We hope the arrival of this zesty Handlebar beer and its striking bar pump clip will encourage plenty of healthy donations” commented Box Steam brewer, Tom Downes.

“This partnership with Punch provides a really positive opportunity to raise vital awareness and cash for this great charity.”

During November, the month now firmly in the calendar for men’s health campaigning, Box Steam Brewery’s charitable cask ale will be available in Punch’s pubs – and follows the brewery’s first supply of rotation beer to the pub group in July this year.

Box Steam has become established for producing steam infused varieties of cask, keg and bottled beers, all handcrafted in its family run brewery, based in the Wiltshire village of Holt.

With a heritage forged from the idea of beautiful engineering and the achievements of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the brewery’s look and drink names provide a nod to the great age of steam and Brunel’s famous Box Tunnel, a nearby landmark to the company’s original brewing site.
