An award-winning Knaresborough micro-brewery' has revealed which charity will benefit from its White Rose charity beer.

The delicious pale ale is only brewed once a year and this time proceeds from craft beer fans will go to supporting the Harrogate Easier Living Project.

A total of 10p from every pint sold (amounting to a total of over £850) is being donated to what is a very worthwhile, local charity which helps older and vulnerable people to stay safe and well supported at home with a range of services aimed at supporting their independence.

Tom Fozard, commercial manager at Rooster’s Brewing Co, who will be donating 10p for every pint of White Rose sold to HELP, said: “We are a small, family-owned business, with our roots in Harrogate and use sales of White Rose, which we brew once a year to coincide with Yorkshire Day on August 1st, to help support a different Yorkshire-based charity.

"We’re delighted to be able to offer our support to the Harrogate Easier Living project this time around."

The beer will be officially launched at Roosters' fourth annual Open Day on July 21 and will then be available at various local pubs locally, including Starling, the Harrogate Tap, Major Tom’s and the Coach & Horses in Harrogate.

The open day will run from noon to 5pm when the public are invited to the brewery on Grimbald off Wetherby Road near St James' Retail Park to take a brewery tour, as well as being able to buy a beer or two and soak up the atmosphere with some funky tunes and a selection of street food.
