Driftwood Spars Continue 'Red Mission' Support
A popular beer brewed by Driftwood Spars in St Agnes is back on tap. Red Mission Ale has been specially developed by the brewery to help raise funds to keep Cornwall's air ambulance in the skies. A proportion of each sale comes to the charity with £1600 already donated by the brewery froms sales so far.
Landlady of the Driftwood Louise Treseder said: “We’ve been blown away by the success of Red Mission and have brought it back because it’s become so popular. It has hints of caramel and chocolate in the malt and is not too strong so it’s ideal for summer drinking!”
Paula Martin, chief executive of Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, said: “We’re delighted that a drink brewed especially for our charity has become a permanent fixture behind the bar at the Driftwood, raising vital funds for the air ambulance.
“Real ale is a huge part of Cornwall’s food and drink culture so it’s a great fit for our fundraising mission, although we always promote the message of enjoying Red Mission responsibly.”
The Driftwood Spars was named the Publican’s Freehouse of the Year 2011 and CAMRA Kernow Pub of the Year 2009 and 2010.
