Takes Two to Mango: Brewgooder team up with Fourpure for exclusive collaboration to support its mission to bring clean water to 1million
Non-profit beer brand Brewgooder joins forces with craft brewers Fourpure to launch two new beers: Mango Pale Ale and Session India Pale Ale that will fund clean water projects
Glasgow-based Brewgooder – the ‘clean water’ brewer on a mission to bring clean water to 1 million people in developing countries, has collaborated with Bermondsey-based craft brewer Fourpure to launch two new exclusive beers.
The funds raised from selling the beer will be used to support its mission to deliver clean water to 1million people, building water pumps in Malawi.
United by a shared belief in social change and sense of adventure, the two breweries have produced a duo of limited-edition beers, a Mango Pale Ale and a Session India Pale Ale.
Alan Mahon, founder of Brewgooder, commented:
“We believe that craft beer has the power to change the world and this will always be the driving force for everything we do. Working with an incredible partner like Fourpure was a natural step in bringing this vision to more of the craft community and show that we can all make real change. We’ve loved working with the Fourpure team who share our thirst for change.”
Mango Pale Ale
Inspired by one of the most loved fruits in Malawi, the bold, fresh Mango Pale Ale is a beer with a difference. The 3.9% ABV pale ale combines citrus-forward Cascade, Citra and Magnum hops with subtle, balanced malt flavours to give fresh, tropical taste enhanced by the addition of natural mango extract.
Session India Pale Ale
Packing all the flavour but with a lower, more sessionable ABV at 3.7%, the Session India Pale Ale is a distinctive IPA. The pale ale delivers a robust mouthfeel, thanks to the addition of oats in the brew. Combined with a fruity, piney aroma of the American hops, all perfectly complemented by bitter citrus dry-hopping.
Alan Mahon continued:
“Mango is a fruit that is celebrated across Malawi and as such seemed a fitting symbol to inspire this collaboration. Our Clean Water Lager has already made such a significant impact and so we were keen to expand the range with more sessionable style beers. It’s no secret that the craft beer scene is full of variety, these beers are in response to our fans calling for more variety when making a conscientious choice.”
Proceeds from the two new brews will be donated to The Brewgooder Foundation, which has already supported over 132 projects. The two beers mark the 5th small-batch collaboration for Brewgooder, as well as the first outside of Scotland, and is the next step in Brewgooders goal to galvanise the craft beer community.
Drinkers will be able to experience the stories of the people and communities impacted by Brewgooder projects by taking a photo of the QR code found on each of the beer cans. The QR code will take drinkers to a short film showcasing the stories, vibrancy and love for life celebrated across Malawi that inspired these beers, filmed by the award-winning, London-based director Tom Welsh.
The beers will be available to buy/ order from today and in selected bars and restaurants across London and Scotland, as well as the Brewgooder online shop until the end of December 2019. Beer fans can visit @BrewGoodr and @fourpurebrewing on Twitter to find their nearest stockist.
