As advertised in the Summer 2013 edition of Butterfly magazine, a new range of butterfly beers is now available from the wildlife-inspired beer specialists, From The Notebook Ltd. Founders Colin Bowler and Graeme Denton have created a range that consists of 4 different beers, including Red Admiral Ruby Ale, Orange-tip Amber Ale, Gatekeeper Best Bitter and our favourite - Brown Hairstreak Tawny Ale! The first 3 are available to buy now at £2.55 per bottle, with the Brown Hairstreak ale following in early August, just in time for the flight period.
The Brown Hairstreak beer is described to be "a tawny ale to cheer dark beer fans with satisfying smooth and malty undertones". And if this isn't exciting enough, Butterfly Conservation will also receive 10p for every bottle sold, helping to better protect our butterflies, moths and the environment. The Brown Hairstreak ale label will even include a message about the consequences of hedge-flailing!
