Following the huge amount of discussion about the forthcoming Referendum by customers and staff within the pubs within the Withy Arms Group, the Pubco has had brewed a real ale called Brexit to stimulate more conversation and maybe to help people make an educated decision.
The beer goes on sale at both Bamber Bridge pubs and in the Withy Arms Leyland on Friday 10th June 2016.
CEO Lee Forshaw says, “The company itself remains impartial but we did a staff straw poll of 49 of the team regarding naming the beer either ‘Remain’ or ‘Brexit’ and ‘Brexit’ came out on top. I will be voting for a Brexit also and I have commissioned a real ale in celebration of our independence day!”.
Local MP Nigel Evans, whose Ribble Valley constituency includes Bamber Bridge where some of the Pubs are based said, ‘As President of the All Party Parliamentary Beer Group and a Brexiteer I’m delighted that brewers have such common sense. I hope beer lovers and those wishing to Leave the EU will unite in supporting the cause and enjoying a great pint into the bargain’.
