The Cornwall AONB covers 958 square kilometres (370 sq ml), about 27 per cent of the total area of the county. It comprises 12 separate areas, ten of which cover stretches of coastline and the two inland areas of Bodmin Moor and the Camel Estuary.
As part of the Cornwall AONB Partnership’s ‘Diamond Anniversary,’ Jane Davies, Development Officer for the Cornwall AONB, visited our Brewing Director, Roger Ryman, to brew Natural Beauty, a new beer that will be released under the popular Small Batch Beer Club.
The brew uses all-natural ingredients and is classed as a Light Mild beer, meaning it is modest in strength and golden in colour but with a flavour as rich, enticing and complex as the Cornish coast.
Jane said, “This is a wonderful way to celebrate what makes Cornwall’s areas of natural beauty so special. The Cornwall AONB isn’t just about the amazing landscape, it’s so much more, such as the Cornish distinctiveness and its heritage. Working with Roger at one of Cornwall’s oldest family businesses is a huge treat and we hope people will join us in raising a glass to our sixtieth anniversary celebrating our wonderful landscape.”
Roger Ryman said, “There are many things which make Cornwall special, but its landscape is something unique. Whether I’m walking the dog, or rowing, I love being out in the Cornish countryside. So, brewing Natural Beauty was something quite personal to me and I’m delighted that the Brewery can be a part of the Cornwall AONB sixtieth anniversary celebrations.”
Natural Beauty, 3.9% ABV, will be on sale at pubs that are part of the Small Batch Beer Club. To find your nearest outlet visit: staustellbrewery.co.uk/smallbatchbrews. It will also be available at our stand (number 481) this weekend at the Royal Cornwall Show.
