18 Mar Diggers Gold, filtered, but still full of craft!
Diggers Gold is the Camra Champion Beer of Wales!
We are proud of it and want it to be experienced by as many people as possible. To make this happen, we are doing two things. Firstly, we are campaigning to get this award winning beer into as many Cynon Valley pubs as possible. You can help us by supporting this campaign which has the hashtag #gimmegold.
Secondly we are producing a batch of Diggers Gold that will be sold in 330ml bottles. This incarnation of Diggers Gold with be filtered and carbonated. This is a decision that we thought long and hard about.
The first thing to say is – don’t worry, we will still continue to make real, unfiltered beer.
But, we are passionate about introducing more people to local, tasty beers made with passion and craft. Filtering this batch of Diggers Gold will help us to do that.
Firstly the logistics of getting a filtered beer in all the local pubs is achievable, we simply would struggle to do it with real, live beer. Secondly, real beer can be intimidating for some people and this can lead to them sticking with what they know and not trying something new. Thirdly, there are lots of people who don’t know how to pour real beer, or how to deal with the sediment… a badly poured real beer can put them off for life.
We are excited about this new chapter in Grey Trees’ mission to bring great beer to everyone and we hope that you are too!
