Fundraise on the First: Brewery unveils musical-themed beer in support of First Step
PUBLISHED: 14:00 13 November 2015
Beer lovers now have a new bottle to try as a brewery launches its latest variety for charity.
Brentwood Brewing Company’s Ale-klahoma will be unveiled tomorrow (Saturday), with 10p from the sale of every bottle or pint donated to First Step, the charity the Recorder is supporting this year through its Fundraise on the First campaign.
The name was chosen by Tracy Richardson, who won a competition led by the brewery, Shenfield Operatic Society and the charity.
The inspiration for the contest was the amateur dramatics group’s upcoming production Oklahoma!.
Members are collecting money for First Step all through rehearsals and performances for the show, set to run from February 10-13 2016 at Queen’s Theatre, Billet Lane, Hornchurch.
Ale-klahoma will be on sale until February 29.
To sample it for yourself, call 01277 200483 or visit brentwoodbrewing.co.uk.
The beer will be available at First Step’s Christmas bazaar (see right), in the form of gift packs, and sold in pubs and at Queen’s Theatre during performances of Oklahoma!.
The competition entries were judged by Roland Kannor and Wendy Pike from Brentwood Brewing Company, Suzanne Gunn, Shenfield Operatic Society’s publicity officer, and Michelle Mitchell, First Step’s fundraising manager.
Michelle said she would like to thank the other judges and all those who had a go at naming the new beer.
