The south London brewery is one of 12 joining forces to help support NHS staff via the campaign
The Buy The NHS a Pint initiative allows drinkers to pay a pint forward to NHS staff, which can be redeemed in their respective taprooms after the outbreak has subsided.
In addition to the seven new beers launched in support of the initiative, Gipsy Hill will be donating £5 for every mixed 12-pack sold through the brewery’s online shop and every case sold directly to trade customers.
The money raised will be forwarded on to the Gipsy Hill Brewery Taproom. Once the bar has been given the green light to reopen, NHS workers or volunteers will be able to come in, show their ID, and redeem a drink on the house.
To date, over 1,000 pints have been donated [to Buy The NHS a Pint] from our webshop alone
Speaking about the new beers, Gipsy Hill co-founder and managing director Sam McMeekin said: ‘The reaction to our Buy The NHS a Pint scheme so far has been incredible. To date, over 1,000 pints have been donated from our webshop alone.
‘Having started the initiative wanting to make a small gesture to support the NHS, we’re now in a position to be able to give away a thousand pints once we reopen our doors, all thanks to your support.’
The new beers are as follows:
