Pendle Pub Walk organisers are happy to announce the name of the special beer that Worsthorne Brewing Company is producing for PPW 2014
Rambler's Gold - the winning entry - was coined by Peter Hartley of Higham (pictured). He wins a crate (1.5 gallons) of Worsthorne Brewing Company's golden beer 'Gold', as well as a Worsthorne Brewing Company pint-glass and polo shirt.
Mick - owner & brewer at Worsthorne Brewing Company - chose the winning entry from over 90 different suggestions that poured into the PPW website over the last few months. Mick has also shown he has a heart of gold, by pledging to donate £10 for every barrel of the special beer that is sold to the pubs for the 2014 event. Paul Trudgill - one of the organisers of the walk - said...
"It's a great name. Mick was telling us as he was browsing the list of entries, that it was going to be a golden ale, similar to the 'Gold' they produce already. Then suddenly that name just jumped off the list.
"And Mick is being super-awesome, pledging so much per barrel to Pendleside Hospice. It seems like every pub on the route this year will be taking the Rambler's Gold, so walkers need to visit their local this weekend and urge them to buy as much as possible. And they will need the beer! -we've nearly hit our goal of 1000 walkers for this year. The Fence (Sparrowhawk) start-point is full, and there's only around a hundred places left at the Barley (Pendle Inn) start-point left now too.
"Thank you to everyone who entered the Name The Beer competition this year. And a perfect result - Rambler's Gold for a golden ale."
Collecting his prizes from PPW organisers in The Four Alls Inn (Higham), Peter tells us...
"Me and my brother did the walk last year - with our dogs - and we really enjoyed it, so we registered again this year. But this was before we knew about my sister-in-law's birthday party, that is the same day as the pub walk. So my son might have to walk with me instead."
Peter also tells us he has done bike-rides for charity in the past, including raising £1,200 for Marie Curie by cycling the Leeds & Liverpool canal. A deserving winner.
