Great Get Together Pale Ale
We've joined forces with brewers across the nation to create the Great Get Together Pale Ale – a collective effort for the Jo Cox Foundation.

In keeping with the ideals of The Great Get Together event, Great Get Together Pale Ale is a ground breaking collective effort.  Some of the oldest, largest, smallest and newest brewers from across the UK have teamed up to create a beer to help people across the UK enjoy the Great Get Togethers with family, friends, colleagues, neighbours and local community. 

Adnams has taken the lead on brewing the beer that will be available at  pubs, shops and other venues during June and July (while stocks last) and it's being distributed free to a number of Great Get Together events during the Great Get Together weekend (16th - 18th June). We've collaborated with them and various participating brewers who've worked together to develop the recipe.     

Brewing Director Roger Ryman commented, “We’re delighted to have been able to contribute to this great brew. It’s for a brilliant cause and also sums up the strong collaborative spirit that exists between the many different breweries great and small across the country. We hope everyone enjoys the Great Get Together Pale Ale and we’ll be raising glasses to the Jo Cox Foundation in all our Small Batch pubs across the South West to celebrate this praiseworthy event.”

The Great Get Together Pale Ale will be available at our Visitor Centre Hicks Bar and Small Batch Brewery pubs.

The brewers have also been supported in this brew by Simpsons malt who are donating the malt for the beer; Charles Faram, who are donating the hops; OI, who are donating the glass for the bottles and Colourscan, who are donating the pump clips for the cask beer. The profits from the Great Get Together Pale Ale will go to the Jo Cox Foundation. Funds raised will support their work to bring together communities across the UK in the spirit of Jo’s words: “we have far more in common than that which divides us.”
