Hook Norton Brewery

Drinkers For Ukraine

Screen Shot 2022 03 22 at 11.06.46

Hook Norton Brewery has become involved in the #DrinkersForUkraine campaign to help raise funds for the Red Cross humanitarian relief efforts.

To show solidarity with them, Drinkers For Ukraine have asked breweries around the world to brew the Ukrainian Anti-Imperial Stout RESIST, developed by Ukrainian brewers.

Hook Norton Brewery are keen to support in whatever way they can and so have brewed their version of the solidarity brew – RESIST Anti Imperial Stout 6%, infused with Beetroot; a first for them! After a request for help on the Hook Norton village Facebook page, the required amount of beetroot was delivered cooked and ready to go into the brew – a real community effort. The resulting brew is now ready to go and will be available at the brewery and in selected Hook Norton pubs with money raised going directly to the Red Cross Disasters Emergency Committee.

RESIST – Anti-Imperial Stout.

A very dark beer, with a brown head tinged with pinkness. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate and caramel. The taste starts with a crisp bitterness from both the hops and the roasted malts, then the earthiness from the beetroot comes through, before being displaced by the roast malt character. A long finish, with an echo of the beetroot present. At 6%, a beer to savour, and proceeds are going to the Red Cross DEC Fund.

The Woodspeen is a restaurant and cookery school set in a lovingly restored 19th century farmhouse, over the border in the West Berkshire countryside. As the seasons change, so too does the menu. It frees the chefs to flex their creative muscles and get the very best out of ingredients while they’re in their prime.
