We are proud to introduce our ORGANIC beer range collaboration with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and River Cottage.
The beer concept was inspired by the Stinger beer Hugh and his team thrived on in the early days at River Cottage. Hugh, has great memories of foraging for the nettles (and drinking the beer) and has always been keen to explore more. After hearing about Stroud Brewery’s ethical credentials and remarkable beer making capabilities, we were invited to bring Hugh’s vision to life.
Like River Cottage we are huge advocates of good farming and good produce. Hugh and his team have been giving millions of TV viewers a taste for great cooking since 1999, when Hugh first brought his famous food ethos to Channel 4. Their hard-hitting campaigns have changed the eating habits of the nation and improved animal welfare and food sustainability. Our values heavily align with River Cottage, we believe food should be grown, cooked and eaten in ways that enhance people’s lives and increase their well-being. We are also working hard to connect people more closely with natural, sustainable and ethical sources of food, so to be selected for this venture with River Cottage is a real highlight of this work.
