Brewers Catch Referendum Bug

News: May 2016

A number of British breweries are joining in the debate about whether the UK should remain in the European Union.

Ahead of the referendum on 23 June, Charles Wells has released an alternative pumpclip for its Bombardier bitter, allowing pro-EU drinkers to choose to buy the beer under the continental name of Chef D’Artillerie.

Also joining in the action are Yorkshire’s Little Valley, which has produced three special beers – In, Out and IDK (I Don’t Know) – from sales of which they hope to produce their own early exit poll, and Bolton’s Dunscar Brewery, which has created two beers in a similar vein called Yeh Butt Bitter and No Butt Blonde.

Surrey’s Hogs Back has launched Hogswallop, a rye beer to mark the occasion, while Warwickshire’s Church End has produced a pro-EU ale called EU Beauty and an anti-EU ale called Screw EU. Chesterfield’s Brampton Brewery’s contributions to the debate are beers called Brexit and Stronger In.
