A group of beer lovers, who have been brewing a drink for a prostate cancer charity, have been nominated for a top business award.

The Two Fingers Brewing Co. donate all profits made from their specially brewed beer to Prostate Cancer UK and have been nominated for a Nectar Business Small Business Award.

The business, nominated for the Contribution To The Community Award, came into existence two years ago when the seven men wanted to create a brand of beer that could support a good cause.

A minimum of 10p from each bottle of their flagship beer Aurelio goes towards the prostate cancer charity.

Two Fingers co-founder Stephen Cross, 30, of Hornchurch, who started the business with the six others after a colleague was diagnosed with the cancer, said: “It’s one of the biggest growing cancers, and for me, well I have four brothers, so I wanted to do anything I could to help.”

If the brewery take the title, they will receive £2,000 in prize money, 50,000 Nectar points and will get to meet Karren Brady of the BBC’s The Apprentice.

Co-founder Matt Sadler, 34, said: “We are over the moon to have been shortlisted.

“Getting first-hand advice about our business from the likes of Karren Brady would really take our mission to fight prostate cancer, one beer at a time, to the next level.”

The award is the only Nectar accolade to be voted for by the public.

Nectar managing director Will Shuckburgh said: “After six years of running these awards, we know that whilst the businesses may be small, the results we celebrate are big. Small and medium enterprises are the backbone of the UK economy.”
