Bath’s Electric Bear craft brewery is to launch a special ‘Treetops’ jubilee beer to raise funds for the Queen’s Green Canopy campaign to ‘Plant a tree for the Jubilee’.
Electric Bear will donate 30p per can of the ‘Treetops’ English Pale Ale to the Queen’s Green Canopy campaign to fund tree packs for individuals and communities to plant in deprived urban areas across the UK.
The 4.1% ABV beer, which only includes English hops, will be available for Platinum Jubilee events and street parties across the region and beyond from Thursday 19th May and is now available to pre-order.
Electric Bear Head Brewer Ian Morris said: “Climate change is a huge and complex issue and as individuals we can feel helpless, however, we can all help by planting trees, and what could be a more enjoyable way of saving the planet than drinking delicious, chilled cans of Treetops!”
David Horner, who bought the Electric Bear Brewing Company with his wife Mary just before Christmas, said: “We are delighted that our Treetops Jubilee beer will be supporting the Queen’s Green Canopy Fund to plant thousands of trees in urban areas across the UK, especially as Bath has been awarded Green Canopy Champion City Status.
“Our wonderful brewing team has created the delicious all-English Treetops Pale Ale as part of our mission to become more sustainable and we hope it will be enjoyed at Jubilee events, street parties and celebrations across the West Country and beyond.
“Every 33 cans of Treetops sold will fund the planting of a native British tree, which will not only benefit our wildlife, but also provide cleaner air, reduce pollution levels, help mitigate the effects of climate change and create new green spaces for the benefit of future generations.”
Treetops is available to pre-order via the brewery’s website or can be purchased directly by visiting the Brewery shop in Brassmill Lane from 19th May.
