This year the Chilterns Conservation Board is celebrating 50 years of protection for the Chilterns as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In addition the Chiltern Society is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and the two organisations have joined forces and invited The Chiltern Brewery to brew a special anniversary ale.
The ale will go on sale in the autumn, but before that the public is being asked to come up with a name for it.
Chiltern Brewery spokesman Tom Jenkinson said: “This year is a special year for everyone who loves the Chilterns - both the Society and the AONB have been instrumental in protecting and conserving this unique countryside for the past 50 years. So we want to say ‘Cheers’ by developing a special brew to mark the occasion."
Send your suggested name for the anniversary ale to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Friday 12th June, with "50th naming competition" in the subject header. The winning entry will receive a free tour of the Chiltern Brewery for 2, an 8 pint box of the anniversary ale and attendance at the launch event in September, plus the chance to see their beer name on pump clips in local pubs.
The celebratory ale will be on sale in the autumn in many pubs throughout the Chilterns, and at the Chiltern Brewery shop, and 5p for every pint sold will go to the Chiltern Society and the Chilterns AONB.
The Chiltern Society is a registered charity with nearly 7,000 members, many volunteering to maintain paths, woodlands and heritage sites in the Chilterns. The Chilterns Conservation Board is a public body responsible for promoting and conserving the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which covers 326 square miles of the Chiltern Hills.
