A Bury St Edmunds brewery is encouraging women to get together and enjoy a pint of ale or beer in celebration of Cask Ale Week.
The Old Cannon Brewery has put on a selection of beers aimed at female drinkers to try during the dedicated ‘week’ (September 24 to October 4).
The ten days are a celebration of Britain’s national drink and bring together people with the shared passion of drinking good beer.
The Old Cannon will be circulating various beers throughout the week including Theakstons and Courage along with the Adnams Spindrift, and are keen to get women trying something new.
Hannah Clark, who runs the brewery with husband Garry, said: “Our mission is to get more women drinking beer and encouraging their friends to do the same. Long gone are the days when holding a pint wasn’t seen as very ladylike!
“We have a lot of female regulars and we think it’s really important to get more women enjoying beer and ale. Cask Ale Week is a great time to get the ladies coming in here to try something new!
“The beers we’ve chosen are ideal for females and for those who are new to ale and beer. The Adnams Spindrift is a great one to get started with because of its lightness – we’ve had a lot of women enjoying that over the last few days.”
There will also be the traditional Old Cannon favourites on bar all week, such as Gunners Daughter and Best Bitter.
The brewery are also running a Twitter competition to win three bottles of beer. To find out more, search @theoldcannon.
