St Austell Brewery has launched a limited edition beer to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Trust’s Coastline campaign.

The brewery has created a 4.3% English pale ale called The Gribbin – named after the headland on the edge of St Austell Bay that the brewery helped buy for the National Trust in 1966, in support of its campaign.

The beer will be on sale at over 200 National Trust outlets in the south west, St Austell Brewery pubs and also available from the brewery’s website.

Every pint or bottle sold will see 20p donated to the Coastline campaign.

Over the last 50 years, public and partnership support have raised over £65 million for the Trust’s campaign, enabling the safeguarding of 775 miles of coastline across England, Wales and Northern Ireland (300 miles of which are in the south west).
