White Rose – 2016


   

As well as being patrons of Saint Michael’s Hospice, Rooster’s is proud to help other local charities, supporting local beer festivals and fundraising events where possible, as well as brewing White Rose each year, which is a beer from which we donate 10p for every pint sold to a local, Yorkshire-based charity. Over the past few years we have made donations to Henshaws, Martin House and, in 2015, a Knaresborough-based group raising funds for defibrillators to be installed in the Market Square.

 

This year we have chosen to support the Yorkshire Children’s Trust, which is a truly local charity, helping local children. It was set up in 2011 by parents with children suffering with cancer in the hope that they can offer support to families going through a similar difficult situation.

 

Founder, Simon Widdop said: “It’s heart-breaking watching your own child going through an illness such as leukaemia and it was a really difficult time for us as a family. We had to put our whole life on hold as our daughter was in hospital for a full year receiving treatment. I wanted to turn a big negative experience in our life into something positive that would help others, and I feel very happy that the charity is helping children and their families from all across Yorkshire.

 

“Although the charity helps families from all four corners of Yorkshire, it doesn’t receive any Government, Lottery or NHS funding so relies on the kind support of local people and local businesses to provide the invaluable support to our local community. The team are very excited to be working with Rooster’s, and it’s a great way for local people to support a great local charity while socialising with their friends and family.”

 

With Yorkshire Day (August 1st) just around the corner, White Rose, a cask-only beer, is being delivered to our trade customers over the next couple of weeks and we hope you’ll join us in raising a glass and helping to support a truly worthwhile cause in the process.

Cheers!

Three of our latest specials to keep an eye out for



There's nothing like digging out the mash to warm you up on a chilly January day.



Late last year we brewed a beer called Howl, which was a 6.8% imperial stout that was conditioned on rum barrel oak and released a cask-only limited edition beer in the run up to Christmas. What we didn’t tell anyone was that we squirreled 5 BBLs of the original beer away...



Baby-Faced Assassin tasting on top form at @fountainandink this afternoon 😍



Have you tried High Tea - our jasmine green tea IPA - yet? It's limited edition, so, if you see it, grab it!



The perfect gig accompaniment? We think so!



Second to Sunday pints, Saturday pints are the best
